Kampala, January 20, 2024 (LANA) - The Personal Envoy of the United Nations Secretary-General to Sudan, Ramtane Lamamra, affirmed that only the Sudanese are capable of stopping the fighting, stressing the need for the international community to unite its efforts to support them in order to achieve this noble goal.

   Lamamra called on the leaders of the conflicting parties to take immediate action and strong steps to end this suffering, through the diligent implementation of the cessation of hostilities agreement, which could lead to lasting peace in the country.

   “Many Sudanese have confirmed their desire to hand over power to a civilian government that will rule the country during a temporary transitional period pending elections,” Lamamra said during a speech he delivered at the extraordinary IGAD summit in Uganda regarding Sudan, explaining that he visited the region last week and met with many Sudanese who expressed the need to end the fighting, including the warring parties themselves.
