Sudan’s Warring Parties Hold Peace Talks in Saudi Arabia But Won’t Agree to Ceasefire

HeadlineMay 09, 2023

In Sudan, fighting continues to rage in Khartoum as representatives for the national military and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces hold talks in Saudi Arabia. On Monday, Sudan’s military ruler, General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, ruled out any peace settlement unless both warring parties agree to a lasting ceasefire. At least 700 people have been killed, while over 100,000 people have fled Sudan since fighting broke out three weeks ago. We’ll have more on Sudan later in the broadcast.
