Sudan army to resume truce talks in Jeddah – govt

According to a government source, representatives of the Sudanese army have returned to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia for discussions with the Rapid Support Forces (RSF).

Development comes as the conflict between rival generals enters its fourth month.

“A delegation of the armed forces has returned to Jeddah to resume negotiations with Rapid Support Forces,” the source told media.

The Rapid Support Forces (RSF) have remained silent regarding their participation in the Jeddah talks, which were adjourned by Saudi and US mediators last month due to a series of ceasefires being violated.

The conflict has been ongoing between army chief Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and his former deputy, Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, who leads the Rapid Support Forces, since April 15.

Latest development signals a return to diplomatic efforts by the army, after it boycotted IGAD talks in Addis Ababa last week.

The foreign ministry in Khartoum expressed objections to Kenyan President William Ruto leading a quartet from the East African regional bloc IGAD, alleging that Nairobi had taken sides with the RSF.
