First Lieutenant-General, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, Chairman of the Sovereign Council, affirmed Sudan’s commitment to work on sustaining peace and strengthening the mechanisms of peaceful transition to reach a full democratic transformation through fair, fair and transparent elections that lead to civilian rule that represents all Sudanese.
Al-Burhan presented, during his speech to the United Nations General Assembly in New York, Thursday, features of the internal situation in Sudan, as well as Sudan’s regional and international efforts to consolidate peace and combat cross-border crime and refugee issues.
Regarding the political transition in the country, the President of the Sovereignty Council reiterated the withdrawal of the military institution from the ongoing dialogue process in Sudan, with the aim of allowing the political and revolutionary forces that believe in democratic dialogue to form a civilian-led government of independent national competencies.
