The UN Security Council is considering calling for a truce in Sudan before Ramadan

Diplomats said, on Friday evening, that the United Nations Security Council is considering calling for an immediate cessation of hostilities before the month of Ramadan, in the war that has been ongoing for nearly a year between the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces.

Diplomats said, on Friday evening, that the United Nations Security Council is considering calling for an immediate cessation of hostilities before the month of Ramadan, in the war that has been ongoing for nearly a year between the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces.

The 15-member council is negotiating a draft resolution drafted by Britain, and diplomats said it may be put to a vote on Friday, and its implementation will begin during the month of Ramadan next week.

The draft resolution calls on "all parties to ensure that any obstacles are removed, and that humanitarian aid is provided full, rapid, safe and unhindered access, including across borders and at various points, and to comply with their obligations under international humanitarian law."

The United Nations says that nearly 25 million people, half of Sudan's population, need aid.

Since the outbreak of war in Sudan on April 15, 2023, the Council has issued only three press statements denouncing the violence and expressing its concern. He repeated the same position in a decision issued in December to end the mission of a United Nations political mission after a request from the Acting Sudanese Foreign Minister.

The draft Security Council resolution urges all countries to “refrain from external intervention that seeks to provoke conflict and instability” and calls on them to “support efforts to achieve lasting peace.”

The Security Council resolution requires the approval of at least nine members and no veto by the United States, Russia, Britain, China or France.
