The international conference on Sudan kicks off on Monday in Paris, a year after the conflict raged in the country.

The conference comes amid efforts to re-highlight what political circles describe as the “forgotten crisis” that is plaguing Sudan and has led to serious humanitarian repercussions.

The conference, in which Germany is an active player, is divided into two parts: one in the morning with ministers from various countries to search for diplomatic solutions to the conflict, and the humanitarian one, aimed at mobilizing financial support.

The conference is held in the absence of the two parties to the conflict, the Sudanese army, and the Rapid Support Forces, while about 40 Sudanese civil society representatives will participate in it in order to promote participation.

Christophe Lemoyne, deputy spokesman for the French Foreign Ministry, said the aim of the conference was to redraw the world’s attention to Sudan and the need to prevent it from turning into a neglected crisis.

He pointed out that the global attention to the crises in Gaza and Ukraine has overshadowed the problems of Sudan, which threatens to exacerbate the humanitarian crisis, and warned of the danger that threatens the disintegration of Sudan and its impact on the stability of the Horn of Africa region.

The conference comes on the first anniversary of the outbreak of the bloody conflict led by the army under the command of General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and the Rapid Support Forces led by General Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, known as “Hemedti”.
