Sudan – Violence (30 June 2019)

France deplores the violence that took place on Sunday, June 30, in Sudan during the protests organized by the opposition, and calls for restraint.

France reaffirms its full support for the joint mediation efforts of the African Union and Ethiopia aimed at reaching a negotiated and inclusive agreement, the only way to swiftly resolve the crisis in Sudan.

It encourages the Transitional Military Council, as well as the opposition, to make progress, in good faith, in the negotiations and to ensure the formation of a civilian-led government as swiftly as possible, in accordance with the balanced proposals that emerged from the mediation.
