The United States affirms its strong support for the efforts of the Tripartite Sudanese Dialogue Mechanism

The United States of America affirmed its strong support for the joint efforts of the tripartite mechanism of the National Dialogue in Sudan, made up of the United Nations, the African Union and the Intergovernmental Authority for Development (IGAD) to resolve the political crisis in the country and achieve a civilian-led democratic transition.

State Department spokesman Ned Price said today in A statement: The United States is convinced that the process led by the United Nations Mission, the African Union and IGAD is the most comprehensive mechanism for reaching an agreement on a civilian-led transition framework, underlining that we continue to encourage all the Sudanese civilian and military parties to take advantage of this process to achieve national stability.

He stressed that Undersecretary of State for African Affairs, “Molly Fee”, called, during telephone conversations with Sudanese civilian and military leaders, to implement commitments aimed at building trust among leaders, lifting the state of emergency and releasing detainees and stressed the need for stakeholders to participate in the political process to achieve rapid progress in the framework of a transitional civilian government.
