The United States and the United Nations have stepped up pressure on Sudan’s new military council to restore democracy.In a statement issued from the White House, Biden called for the return of the interim civilian government in Sudan.
“Our clear message to the officials of the Military Council in Sudan is to allow the Sudanese people to protest peacefully and to restore the civilian-led interim government,” he said.
Biden’s government has frozen aid to Khartoum since the army declared a state of emergency in Sudan on October 25. Sudanese army commander Abdel Fattah al-Burhan announced on October 25 that he would dissolve the government.
He confirmed on Thursday evening that consultations were under way to elect a new prime minister and that the army was in talks with Prime Minister Abdullah Hamduk to form a new government.
