Sudan Governmental Talks on 72 Hour Hold

05/17/2019 Sudan (International Christian Concern) –This week, the military council, which has been ruling Sudan since the fall of the previous regime, has stopped the talks that have been ongoing with the leaders of the protests. The leader of the military council, Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, said that the talks had to be suspended until the atmosphere becomes more conducive to the peaceful talks.

The protestors and military had come to an agreement that all protests would be held in a specific zone, but some protestors have set up outside that area. They have reportedly blocked a major traffic way near the university of Khartoum. This was the main reason that al-Burhan gave for the delay in the talks.

The talks are necessary though for the future of Sudan to change. The talks have been focusing on getting a civilian run government that will help end the decades long military rule and dictatorships that have been in charge for so long.
