Violent fighting between warring parties continues in Sudan

Within the framework of the XIV regular summit of IGAD heads of state and government held in Djibouti, its executive secretary, Workneh Gebeyehu, called for concentrated efforts for a definitive cessation of hostilities.

"The resumption of fighting in Khartoum, parts of West Darfur and El-Geneina in North Darfur, as well as in other parts of the country, is very discouraging," Gebeyehu said.

In this sense, the executive secretary urged the warring parties to give dialogue a chance in order to avoid more deaths and allow the safe evacuation of civilians.

‚ÄúFor a credible cessation of hostilities, the violence and bloodshed must first be stopped. The ramifications for our region and the world at large of a protracted conflict in the Republic of Sudan are unthinkable,‚ÄĚ he stressed.

Likewise, Gebeyehu emphasized that IGAD has "a moral and historical obligation to stop and reverse the course of this conflict because war is simply an escape from the challenges of peace."

The organization made up of Djibouti, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Uganda, Eritrea and Sudan, participated in the tripartite mechanism together with the UN and the African Union for the political transition in Sudan after the coup in 2021.
