EU condemns increase in violence in Sudan, and calls for a ceasefire

Brussels, Jul 5 (Prensa Latina) The High Representative of the European Union (EU) for Foreign Affairs, Josep Borrell, on Wednesday condemned the upsurge of violence in Sudan, where clashes between the Army and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) have been rekindled.

Borrell called on the parties to reach a “ceasefire” imminently. And he conveyed the EU’s rejection of the “refusal of the parties to find a peaceful solution”.

It is necessary to ensure the protection of the population, whose safety and integrity is at risk, says a statement from the EU executive.

The EU deplores the deaths and the serious violations of international law.

We are particularly concerned about reports of attacks on civilians and in civilian areas, especially in Darfur, where there are indications of sexual violence and (…) forced displacement, the text states.

Finally, the text indicates that the EU supports the collection of evidence of human rights violations and is ready to use all means at its disposal (…) to contribute to ending the conflict and promoting peace.

The North African country has been suffering from an escalation of violence since mid-April due to a power dispute between several generals.
