Riyadh, 10 June. Saudi Arabia and the United States announced that representatives of the Sudanese army and Rapid Response Force (RRF) have reached a temporary ceasefire agreement across the country.
“The ceasefire is in effect 24 hours a day from 6:00 am on 10 June, Khartoum time,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Middle East Kingdom said in a statement.
According to the State Department, a new agreement has been reached between the Armed Forces and the RRF to strengthen confidence-building measures. It is expected to allow the parties to the conflict to restart negotiations in Jeddah.
In a joint statement, Riyadh and Washington also expressed their disappointment at the failure to comply with previous ceasefire agreements. It was previously learned that violent clashes broke out between army units and RRF in the Yarmouk military base area south of Khartoum. The conflict was to gain control over the defense industry complex located here.
Meanwhile, national politicians continue to accuse international mediators of dragging the country into an armed conflict. Recently, Sudan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent a memo to the UN, describing the head of the organization’s mission in the country as persona non grata.
