EU tells Sudan to form civilian-led government



The EU on Thursday asked the Sudanese military rulers to prioritize reaching an agreement, in order to pave way for a civilian-led transition, according to a written statement issued late Wednesday. The EU Spokesperson for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Maja Kocijancic warned military rulers that the 28-member EU may no longer engage with them, unless they show urgency to hand over power to a civilian authority.
“The EU continues to support the African Union and Ethiopian mediation efforts and calls on the Transitional Military Council (TMC) and the Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC) to set aside their differences and swiftly reach an agreement to pave the way for a civilian-led transition in Sudan,” the statement said. Any further delay was fraught with a risk of upsetting the achievements and has potential to fuel more violence, according to the statement.—APP
