Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni Facilitates Meeting Between Sudanese Army Commander Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and Rapid Support Forces Commander Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo to Cease Sudan’s Ongoing War

In a significant diplomatic move aimed at resolving the protracted conflict in Sudan, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has successfully secured commitments from key stakeholders for a crucial meeting scheduled before the end of June. Sources close to the negotiations revealed that President Museveni’s efforts have garnered approval from both the Sudanese army commander, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, and the commander of the Rapid Support Forces, Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, to convene talks aimed at halting the ongoing hostilities.

“The sources reported that Museveni succeeded in obtaining approval from both sides to hold the meeting before the end of this June, which is the date set by the international community to find solutions to the conflict in Sudan.”

However, despite initial indications of readiness from the Coordination of Civilian Democratic Forces and the Sudanese army leaders, there has been no official confirmation regarding the exact date of their anticipated meeting. Sources familiar with the developments emphasized that ongoing communications are underway with all concerned parties, including informal discussions focused on establishing a ceasefire and outlining necessary political measures.

“The sources explained that communication is still ongoing with the leaders of the army and the Rapid Support Forces, and that informal discussions have taken place with each of them regarding the ceasefire and related political action mechanisms.”

Reflecting on the broader international context, a former diplomat from the Sudanese Foreign Ministry underscored mounting global pressure on the African Union to bolster its intervention in mediating the conflict. Concerns over the escalating crisis and its potential spillover effects on regional stability have intensified calls for urgent diplomatic action.

“For his part, a former diplomat in the Sudanese Foreign Ministry pointed out that there is international pressure on the African Union to strengthen its role in stopping the war, in light of the growing fears of the worsening crisis and its impact on regional security.”

As the deadline set by the international community approaches, stakeholders remain cautiously optimistic about the prospects for a breakthrough in Sudan’s conflict resolution efforts. With President Museveni’s facilitation paving the way for pivotal discussions, all eyes are now on the anticipated meeting and its potential to pave a path towards peace in the embattled nation.
