Today, Tuesday, the head of the Transitional Sovereignty Council in Sudan, Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, received a phone call from US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, in which they reviewed the course of Sudanese-American relations and their future.
The President of the Sovereign Council briefed the US Secretary of State on the progress of the political process in the country and the challenges it faces.
According to a statement by Al-Burhan’s media office, Blinken affirmed the United States’ support for the political process in Sudan, and promised to help his country overcome the obstacles that stand in its way.
In a related context, the Norwegian ambassador to Sudan, Andre Stansen, warned today of the current political crisis in Sudan, and considered it “very serious.”

On his official Twitter account, Stansen said that the Political Framework Agreement and its implementation is the “only” credible way forward.
On the other hand, the UK Embassy in Sudan published a statement urging the Sudanese parties to redouble efforts “in a spirit of flexibility, concessions and unity, to achieve a final political agreement in the coming days.”
“This agreement will constitute the path towards the establishment of a civilian transitional government and lay the foundations for a democratic, prosperous and peaceful future for Sudan,” the embassy said in the statement.
The signing of the final political agreement, which was scheduled for April 6, was postponed for the second time, due to the failure of the signatory military parties to complete the joint talks on security and military reform procedures, according to a statement by the Forces for Freedom and Change.
On the other hand, the work of the Transitional Constitution Drafting Committee began yesterday, Monday, as part of the final stage of the political process.
