Today, Saturday, the Sudanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed its dissatisfaction with the statements made by the US Ambassador to Khartoum, John Godfrey, yesterday about the conflict in the country.
The Sudanese Foreign Ministry said in a statement carried by the Sudanese News Agency that Godfrey’s statements “contradict diplomatic norms and rules, and do not help to get out of the crisis.”
She added that the US ambassador’s talk about the Sudanese army as an equivalent party to the Rapid Support Forces “lacks fairness and moral consistency.” “We expect the US ambassador and his country’s government to correct this unbalanced and flawed position,” she added.
Godfrey said on Friday that the warring parties in Sudan had proven that they were “unfit to rule the country” and that they should end the conflict and transfer power to a civilian transitional government.
“The warring parties, who have proven themselves unfit to govern, must end the conflict and transfer power to a civilian transitional government,” Godfrey added on Twitter. “A future that the Sudanese people will build themselves can only be achieved after security is restored,” he added.
War and hunger
The United Nations warned that war and hunger threaten to completely “destroy” Sudan, in light of the violent battles that have been taking place since April 15 in this country between the army and the Rapid Support Forces, and this comes while the head of the Sovereignty Council, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, is making his first internal and external tours since the start of the fighting. .
The fighting has so far killed nearly 5,000 people, according to the NGO ACLED, but the true toll is likely higher, given that many areas of the country are completely cut off and both sides refuse to report their losses.
During four months of fighting, more than 4.6 million people have been displaced within the country or fled to neighboring countries.
Since last April, Sudan has been witnessing clashes between the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces, which have killed hundreds and left millions of Sudanese dead.
