On August 17, the Transitional Military Council (TMC) and the opposition signed a constitutional declaration, in line with the commitments they had made.
France applauds this latest step in the peaceful transition to which the Sudanese people aspire. It urges the parties to implement this agreement in the same spirit of compromise and reconciliation in which it was signed.
France offers its best wishes for the success of the new transitional institutions and especially the future civilian-led government that will have to meet the challenges – particularly the economic challenges – facing the Sudanese in their daily lives. It reiterates its willingness to lend its support to the Sudanese people in this new chapter.
