Sudan’s former Prime Minister Calls For Unified Effort To Hold Peace Talk In Sudan

Written by on April 30, 2023

Sudan’s former Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has warned that the conflict in his country could become worse than those in Syria and Libya, stressing that the fight between the regular army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) would be a nightmare for the world if it continued.

Residents earlier today said warplanes and heavy anti-aircraft fire were heard over the capital Khartoum, with the army saying it was attacking from all directions, using heavy artillery.

Speaking at a conference in the Kenyan capital Nairobi, Mr Hamdok called for a unified international effort to persuade the Sudanese army chief and the Rapid Support Forces leader to hold peace talks.

Mr Hamdok – who served as prime minister twice between 2019 and 2022 – added that the insecurity could become worse than the civil wars in Syria and Libya.
