Freedom and Change in Sudan: UN consultations received a severe blow

Freedom and Change in Sudan: UN consultations received a severe blow The Alliance of Forces of Declaration of Freedom and Change (the former ruling coalition in Sudan) said that "the international consultations currently taking place in the country have received a severe blow."  The former ruling coalition in Sudan said on Tuesday that "the UN consultations currently taking place in the country have received a severe blow," calling for the formation of an international mechanism to develop a credible political process.  This came in a statement by the Forces of Declaration of Freedom and Change, the former ruling coalition, regarding a message it sent to the Friends of Sudan Forum, which concluded its meeting on Tuesday in Riyadh.  It was not possible to obtain an immediate comment from the United Nations Integrated Mission to Support the Transition in Sudan (UNITAMS), or the Sudanese authorities regarding what the coalition said.  On January 8, the mission announced the launch of preliminary consultations for a comprehensive political process between the Sudanese parties to resolve the country's crisis, and held meetings with the Forces for the Declaration of Freedom and Change, the Communist Party, the Sudanese Congress, resistance committees, women's groups and civil society forces.  Since last October 25, Sudan has exploded with protests, in response to exceptional measures taken by the army commander, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, most notably the imposition of a state of emergency and the dissolution of the Sovereignty Councils and the Transitional Ministers, which political forces consider a "military coup", in exchange for the army's denial.  The coalition said in a statement that it "sent a message on Tuesday to the meeting of the Friends of Sudan," which was held in Riyadh on Tuesday.  The coalition message stated that "the initial consultations launched by the United Nations Integrated Mission in Sudan were dealt a severe blow by the coup authority," without elaborating on details.  She called on the gathering to support the demand for the formation of a high-level international mechanism that would be acceptable to the Sudanese people and compatible with their aspirations.  She stressed the importance of this mechanism helping to develop a credible political process that ends the revolutionary situation completely and establishes a new constitutional framework that fulfills the requirement of full civil authority.  According to a statement issued by the Saudi Foreign Ministry, representatives of the Friends of Sudan Forum met at the headquarters of the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Riyadh to discuss efforts for a peaceful political transition, without making any reference to that message.  The Friends of Sudan Forum was established in 2018, as a group of Arab and international countries and organizations committed to coordinating political and economic support for Sudan.

Tebboune: External borrowing is mortgaging the freedom of our decisions “in defense of just causes such as Palestine and Western Sahara”  Algeria: Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune said today, Tuesday, that "external debt mortgages our sovereignty and the freedom of our decisions, and our freedom to defend just causes in the world, especially Western Sahara and Palestine, and Algeria is heading towards a new economic system, based on clean capital."  "There are those who are worried about our sovereignty, but we will continue our path with an unyielding will, so that Algeria will be in its rightful place regionally and internationally, with the support of our People's National Army, and Algeria's non-indebtedness from abroad bothers many parties," he added.  He continued, "The Algerian army is a peaceful army, but it defends Algeria fiercely. Woe to those who attacked Algeria."  In his speech, Tebboune reiterated that "there is no democracy with a weak state, a weakness that stimulates chaos and is forced to compromise principles."  And he considered that “political commentary and freedom of expression are guaranteed, but politely, because they have nothing to do with insulting and cursing, the agent of lies, spreading falsehood, and attempts to bring the state to its knees by twisted means.” (DPA)
