Egyptian Initiative for Sudanese Conflict: Senior Army Officers to Meet for Binding Agreement

Agency/Al-Hadath sources said there is an Egyptian initiative based on achieving a meeting of senior Sudanese army officers and support forces within weeks.

The sources stressed that Egypt seeks a binding agreement between the two sides of the Sudanese conflict for a period of at least 3 months, just as Cairo seeks to reach a binding and written agreement between the two sides through which a cease fire for a period of not less than three months.

He drew up a plan and timetable for the withdrawal of the army and rapid support from the cities, then a ceasefire and then its consolidation.

Egypt also confirmed its reservations about the deployment of foreign forces in Sudan, according to Agency / Al-Hadath sources.

Previous truces

Interestingly, several truces have already been announced since the outbreak of conflict between the army and support forces, most of which are sponsored by Saudi Arabia and the United States, but have not been fully respected on the ground.

Since the outbreak of fighting on April 15, Khartoum and several Sudanese regions have witnessed clashes between the army led by Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and the Rapid Support Forces led by Muhammad Hamdan Dagalo, with which all efforts to a solution and the vast majority of ceasefire agreements have failed.

While the conflict has exacerbated the crises experienced by Sudan, one of the poorest countries in the world even before the battles, and has affected all aspects of the life of its population, estimated in over 45 million people.

Thousands dead

More than 2,000 people have been killed, according to the latest data from the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED), but the actual numbers could be much higher, according to humanitarian agencies and international organizations.

Similarly, the battles have displaced more than 2.2 million people, of whom more than 528,000 have sought refuge in neighboring countries, according to the latest figures from the International Organization for Migration. More than 149,000 people entered in Chad on the border with the Darfur region, where the United Nations fears violations that could qualify as “crimes against humanity”, especially in the city of El Geneina, the center of the state of West Darfur, one of the five states in the region.
