Secretary-General of the Arab League, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, assigned a high-level delegation headed by Ambassador Hossam Zaki, Assistant Secretary-General, to travel to the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, to address the political crisis in Sudan.
A statement issued by the Arab League stated that the delegation will meet with Sudanese leaders from the various parties to support efforts to end the current political crisis, in light of the signed agreements governing the transitional period.
The Arab League previously signed in August 2019 the transitional constitutional document, and Secretary-General Aboul Gheit participated in the efforts made at that time to conciliate views.
On the other hand, the head of the South Sudan mediation delegation to Khartoum, Tut Gallwak, said earlier that an agreement had been reached between the parties of the crisis in Sudan, and it is expected to be announced soon.
He indicated that the Sudanese Armed Forces Commander, Lieutenant-General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, agreed to release some political detainees immediately and the rest will be freed during a later stage.
He explained that the agreement did not address a return to the situation before 25 October, but there is a convergence of visions between the two parties.
For his part, Al-Burhan stressed the keenness of the Armed Forces to protect the democratic transition in the country, and to complete the transitional period.
During his meeting with the Special Envoy of the African Union, Olson Abusanjo, he indicated that the Armed Forces seek to hold free and fair elections that will bring an elected civilian government that meets the aspirations of the Sudanese people.
