Sudanese Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok confirmed that he signed the political agreement, today, Sunday, with the army leaders, at the presidential palace in Khartoum, for several basic reasons, most notably to spare the blood of the Sudanese youth. He added, “I know that young people have the ability to sacrifice and determination and offer everything that is valuable, but Sudanese blood is precious.”
He also stressed that the agreement aims to return the country to a democratic transition, and to preserve the gains of the past two years.
In addition, he stressed that he would fortify the civil democratic transition, stressing that “there is no way to go to the point of no return.”
He continued, “When I accepted the assignment of the Chairman of the Transitional Council, I knew that the road was fraught with dangers, but we can cross through our country, it is impossible.”
He also pointed out the necessity of “working to unify all Sudanese forces with a solid democratic system,” adding that “Sudan’s interest is a priority.”
4 weeks of work
He also warned that challenges remain significant, despite the achievements made during the past two years.
In addition, he explained that the achievement of the agreement came “as a result of continuous work during the past 4 weeks,” thanking everyone who contributed to this.
Hamdok’s speech came during the signing ceremony of the agreement with the President of the Transitional Council, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, and his deputy, Hamdan Daglo (Hemedti).
This came, after the terms of the agreement were read, which provided for the release of all political detainees, and the start of a dialogue between all political forces to establish the constitutional conference, as well as the annulment of the army commander’s decision to exempt Al-Burhan.
It also stipulated the speedy completion of all institutions of transitional governance.
