Note to Correspondents – in response to questions on Sudan

05 July 2022

In response to questions asked at the noon briefing on Sudan, the Spokesperson had the following to say: 

The Secretary-General takes note of the statement of the Chairperson of the Sovereign Council, Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, yesterday, on the withdrawal of the military from the political talks facilitated by the AU-IGAD-UNITAMS Trilateral Mechanism. The Secretary-General hopes this creates the opportunity for Sudanese to reach an agreement that ultimately leads to a civilian-led transition to democracy in Sudan.

The Trilateral Mechanism encourages dialogue between all stakeholders to reach agreement on the way forward to restore a civilian-led democratic transition.

The Secretary-General supports the calls for independent investigation into incidents of violence, including through appropriate transitional justice mechanisms.
