Khartoum, Sudan | Xinhua | The United Nations mission in Sudan concluded on Sunday the first stage of consultations with Sudanese parties to end the political crisis in the country.
The UN Integrated Transitional Assistance Mission in Sudan (UNITAMS) would soon produce a summary document that highlights major areas of consensus among Sudanese political forces on contentious matters on the transition to civilian rule, the mission said in a statement.
Volker Perthes, head of the UNITAMS, described the consultation process as “valuable” as it allows the mission to hear a range of perspectives and proposals from the Sudanese people.
On Jan. 10, the UNITAMS launched an intra-Sudanese political process to end the country’s political crisis and Perthes has been in consultations with Sudanese political parties and civil forces in the country.
Sudan has been suffering a political crisis since Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, chairman of Sudan’s transitional Sovereign Council, declared a state of emergency on Oct. 25, 2021 and dissolved the Sovereign Council and the government.
