On Sunday, the head of the Gulf Cooperation Council appealed for calm in Sudan and an end to all military escalation.
During a meeting with Dafallah Al-Haj Ali, undersecretary at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Jasem Al-Budaiwi emphasized the GCC’s commitment to Sudan’s security, safety, and stability, preserving the cohesion of the state and its institutions, and assisting it in meeting all challenges in order to achieve the Sudanese people’s aspirations.
Al-Budaiwi hailed Saudi Arabia and all GCC nations for their humanitarian efforts in the present Sudan issue.
He also praised the international and regional efforts to establish an agreement among political parties, end the situation in Sudan, and restore security and stability to the country.
According to a statement made by the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF), a humanitarian truce in Sudan was extended on Sunday and will last three days beginning at midnight.
“In response to international, regional, and local calls, we announce the extension of the humanitarian truce for 72 hours, beginning tonight at midnight,” the statement said.
Since a long-simmering power struggle between the Sudanese army and the RSF erupted into conflict on April 15, hundreds of people have been killed and thousands have been injured.
