Military Opts Out Of Political Talks In Sudan.

Sudan’s military leader General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan say the army would not participate in internationally led dialogue efforts to break its stalemate with the civilian opposition, and urged political and revolutionary groups to start talks to form a transitional government.

You may recall that, last October, Sudan’s military staged a coup, dissolving a transitional government formed after President Omar al-Bashir was toppled in a twenty nineteen popular uprising.

Reports say, the military takeover triggered frequent mass rallies demanding the army quit politics.

Meanwhile, the United Nations and the African Union have led mediation efforts to break the deadlock as the economic crisis has worsened, but there has been little sign of progress.
