High level talks between Sudan and the United States

Khartoum, May 29 (Prensa Latina) The president of the Sovereign Transitional Council (CST) of Sudan, Abdelfatá al Burhan, held a telephone conversation with the Chief of the United States diplomacy, Antony Blinken, local media report here today.

According to sources, Blinken called for an end to the conflict and urged Burhan to reopen negotiations.

The situation in the city of El Fasher, scene of violent fighting in the last two weeks, which has left more than 50 dead and some 1000 wounded, was also discussed.

Since mid-April of last year, Sudan has been plunged into an internal war, after contradictions over power issues flared up between the head of the Army, Abdel Fatah al-Burhan, and the leader of the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces, Mohamed Hamdan Daglo.

In Sudan, where a military coup d’état occurred in 2019 and another in 2021, a conflict broke out that killed thousands of civilians, including some 15,000 in the West Darfur region alone, and the displacement of some seven million people, according to data provided by the United Nations.
