Ruto calls for Sudan ceasefire
Parties pushing for stability in Sudan have been asked to work together for the fruitful realization of their plan.
President William Ruto said IGAD and Jeddah Processes must consolidate their efforts to facilitate the realization of a permanent ceasefire in the country.
He said the union will skillfully push for access to humanitarian assistance, the protection of refugees, as well as the reactivation of the Political Process. This, the Head of State explained, will lay the foundation for lasting peace in Sudan.
He was speaking on Saturday night when he held a telephone consultation with the Chairman of the Transitional Sovereign Council of Sudan, General Abdel Fattah Abdelrahman al-Burhan.
"The IGAD and Jeddah processes must work together to facilitate the realization of a permanent ceasefire in Sudan. They must also push for the free movement of humanitarian assistance, the protection of refugees and the reactivation of the Political Process," Ruto said in a statement.
In his capacity as the chair of the IGAD quartet of heads of state on Sudan, the President also spoke with the President of Chad, General Mahamet Idriss Deby Itno.
The two leaders agreed on the acceleration of the restoration of normalcy in Sudan and support to refugee-hosting countries.
"Our conversation centered around the speedy restoration of normalcy in Sudan and support for refugee-hosting countries," Ruto added.
