Sudan – France welcomes the acceptance of a ceasefire by the parties to the conflict in Sudan (25 April 2023)


France welcomes the acceptance by the parties to the Sudan conflict of a 72-hour ceasefire, secured thanks to the efforts of the United States. It calls on all the parties to fully respect this cessation of fighting, particularly to make it easier for humanitarian aid to reach the population and ensure the safety of those civilians still in areas of confrontation.

In conjunction with its regional and international partners, France will be vigilant about actual compliance with the cessation of hostilities, which must enable progress towards a permanent ceasefire and the launch of inclusive political negotiations, to identify a way out of the crisis.

France thanks General Burhan and General Hemedti for their cooperation in operations to evacuate its nationals.
