The head of Sudan’s Transitional Sovereignty Council, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, promised that the army would “one day” be under the country’s civilian leadership, stressed that he would not allow anyone to disband the armed forces, and stressed that it was necessary. They respect Khartoum’s sovereignty and don’t try to dictate it. That came in a public address broadcast on state television at the 57th annual shooting festival in the southeastern Blue Nile state. Al-Burhan said: “We warn politicians not to talk about army issues and that they should work on reforming their parties.” He continued: “We want the Armed Forces to break free from the Brotherhood and support the democratic transition.” Al-Burhan noted that the “framework agreement” is likely to pull the country out of the political crisis.
On December 5, 2022, the Sudanese army and civilian forces led by the Freedom and Change coalition signed a framework agreement to end the crisis in the country, and a political process to end the dots was launched last week.
The ongoing political process in Sudan includes reaching a final agreement on 5 outstanding issues, namely: “Transitional Justice, Security and Military Reform, Revision of the Peace Agreement, Dismantling of the Regime of 30 June 1989 (Regime of President Omar al-Bashir deposed. ) and the question of eastern Sudan”.
In a speech in the southeast of the country, al-Burhan made it clear that “the armed forces will continue to be the guardians of the country and will unite for the reunification of Sudan”, underlining that “the armed forces will continue to support the democratic regime approximation.” .” Speaking on relations with international and regional powers, al-Burhan said: “Neither side dictates what we should do”, stressing that there are “red lines that cannot be crossed”. Al-Burhan thanked the Republic of South Sudan, as it has taken in a large number of refugees from the Blue Nile region in recent times, and also thanked other neighboring countries, including Egypt, Ethiopia and Chad.
Al-Burhan criticized the Sudanese army’s subjective accusations of “hiring mercenaries” to destabilize neighboring countries, stressing that “this is not the norm in the armed forces”.
Al-Burhani is expected to sign a reconciliation document between Blue Nile and Hausa community components and chair a joint federal and regional cabinet meeting before departing for the city of Oulu. He knows the security measures at the SPLM-N headquarters.
The violent incidents in the state come amid conflict over civil administration between the Hausa tribe and the Blue Nile tribes in July last year, which killed about 30 people, before resuming in September, killing dozens. It got bloodier last October.
