War in Sudan: resumption of negotiations under American-Saudi mediation

Negotiations between the army and paramilitaries at war for more than six months in Sudan will resume under American-Saudi mediation in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, the army led by General Abdel Fattah al-Burhane announced on Wednesday.

Since April 15, the conflict has left more than 9,000 dead, according to a very underestimated UN report, and 5.6 million displaced people and refugees. Various attempts at mediation, mainly those already organized in Jeddah , have continued to fail, only allowing brief truces to be achieved.

"At the invitation of Saudi Arabia and the United States to resume negotiations with the FSR militia rebels, and because we believe that negotiations are a means that could help end the war, we "We accepted the invitation to Jeddah ," said a statement issued by the Sudanese army.

“The resumption of negotiations does not mean an end to the battle” , however, specifies the text.

The paramilitaries of General Mohamed Hamdane Daglo's Rapid Support Forces (FSR) have not yet announced their position.

These talks, which were suspended in June, will focus on "a ceasefire, unhindered access of humanitarian aid" to Sudan and "other confidence-building measures ", a senior official told journalists. State Department official speaking on condition of anonymity.

Very active on this issue, the United States has increased contacts to ensure this resumption of talks and the head of American diplomacy Antony Blinken finalized the terms during a trip last week to Saudi Arabia, according to another official. American.

Representatives of the Igad countries, made up of Kenya, Djibouti, Ethiopia and South Sudan, will join the discussions in Jeddah on behalf of the African Union, according to the same source.

The objective is to ensure that these talks can ultimately lead to a complete cessation of hostilities.

In the even longer term, the United States is encouraging the creation of a “civil front” in Sudan to ensure a democratic transition.

But the Jeddah talks "will not address broader political issues," one of the US officials said.

“There is no acceptable military solution and we urge the Sudanese army and the RSF to approach these discussions in a constructive spirit ,” the same source said.

“Humanitarian nightmare”
As the conflict bogs down and the humanitarian situation deteriorates, both sides have privately expressed their willingness to resume talks.

They "are feeling the effects of sustained fighting and, frankly, the humanitarian situation has continued to deteriorate, putting pressure on them," said one of the American officials.

The war in Sudan - which has taken an ethnic turn in Darfur (west) where the UN is investigating a possible _"genocide"_-- is "one of the worst humanitarian nightmares in recent history" , according to the United Nations.

Today, out of 48 million Sudanese, more than half need humanitarian aid to survive, humanitarian aid workers constantly repeat who denounce the obstacles to movement and supplies on the part of the Sudanese authorities but also the lack of commitment from international donors who only finance a quarter of their needs.

“For six months, civilians have experienced no break from the bloodshed and terror,” Martin Griffiths, the head of United Nations humanitarian aid, recently declared.

According to the UN , "the number of families suffering from hunger has almost doubled" over the past year and "700,000 children suffer from severe acute malnutrition."

According to a projection from the American Johns Hopkins University, “at least 10,000 children under the age of five could die by the end of 2023”.

In addition, millions of children are exposed to cholera, dengue fever, measles and malaria, while 70% of hospitals in conflict zones are out of service.

With more than 7.1 million internally displaced people – including 4.5 million since the start of the conflict – Sudan now has the largest number of displaced people in the world, reports the UN.
