U.N. Security Council Pushes for Ramadan Ceasefire in Sudan

HeadlineMar 11, 2024

The Sudanese military has rejected U.N. calls for a truce in fighting with its rival Rapid Support Forces during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The RSF had said it welcomed the truce. The U.N. Security Council adopted a resolution Friday urging an end to nearly one year of fighting. The U.N. also expressed grave concern over the deteriorating humanitarian crisis in Sudan. This is China’s deputy U.N. ambassador speaking Friday.

Dai Bing: “The lives of all the people in the world are precious. While adopting a resolution on a ceasefire during the month of Ramadan in Sudan, the Security Council must not forget that the people of Gaza are still suffering under bombardment. The international community must push forward for an immediate ceasefire and an end to the conflict in Gaza to give the people some hope for survival and provide the basic security necessary for all religious activities by the Muslims there.”
