Norway, UK, US praise Sudanese civil forces meeting to end war

The Troika countries, comprised of Norway, the United Kingdom, and the United States, commended the recent gathering in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where various Sudanese civilian actors and stakeholders came together. This event marks a significant stride towards establishing an inclusive and representative pro-democracy civilian coalition.

U.S. State Department Spokesperson Matthew Miller, on social media platform X, said, “The United States welcomes the efforts of Sudan civilian stakeholders this week to come together and begin an inclusive process to restore a democratic transition. We stand with the people of Sudan as they demand freedom, peace, and justice.”

“Sudanese civilians continue to gather throughout Sudan and across the region to discuss their political future. We encourage them to seek areas of convergence and form a strong pro-democracy civilian front that can begin a process to address transitional and governance issues and reach a national consensus to press the warring parties to stop the fighting and facilitate badly needed humanitarian assistance.” The Troika said in a statement.

The statement added, “Securing a transitional civilian government after the conflict is critical for resuming Sudan’s progress towards democracy. That effort requires broad participation of Sudanese from all walks of life and all parts of the country.”

The Troika condemned the continuing violence and tragic loss of life across Sudan, expressed support for the Sudanese people and said that it would support displaced persons and other at-risk communities through life-saving humanitarian aid.
