Top US diplomat to visit Sudan amid crisis to encourage talks

AFP
A top US diplomat will visit Sudan to encourage talks between Sudan’s military rulers and protesters. The US, assistant secretary of state for African affairs, Tibor Nagy, during his visit plans to meet members of both sides. 

The US state department said, Mr Nagy would urge parties to work towards creating an enabling environment for talks between the two sides to resume. He will also discuss the situation with the Ethiopian Prime Minister, Abiy Ahmed, who has been trying to mediate between the military council and the opposition in Sudan. 

Sudanese Professionals Association (SPA) called the strike after more than 100 protesters were killed by a paramilitary group, the Rapid Support Forces (RSF), on 3 June. Protesters have set up roadblocks across the capital. The ruling military government has blocked the country's internet. 


After ousting long-time President Omar al-Bashir in April following months of protests against him, the military council promised a transition to civilian rule. But pro-democracy campaigners say the military council cannot be trusted after Monday's crackdown against a sit-in demonstration in Khartoum. They have rejected an offer of talks.
