Moscow reiterated its rejection of any external intervention in Sudan at a special session of the Security Council to discuss the situation in the war-torn country.

Russia’s ambassador to the Security Council, Vassily Nebenzia, said “any external interference in Sudan’s internal affairs is unacceptable.”

US Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield said her country was concerned about the deteriorating security situation in Sudan, adding, “We are committed to helping the Sudanese people to stop the bloodshed.”

Britain’s ambassador, James Kariuki, said, “We call on all countries to support efforts to stop the fighting in Sudan,” adding, “We call on the parties to the conflict in Sudan to sit down at the dialogue table.”

On March 8, the Security Council called for a ceasefire in Sudan during the month of Ramadan, in light of the deteriorating situation in the country, and 14 countries supported the text proposed by Britain, while Russia abstained from voting on it.

The Security Council meeting took place the following day when UN Secretary-General António Guterres called on the parties to the conflict in Sudan to “cease fire within the month of Ramadan” as the humanitarian crisis takes on “enormous proportions”.

But these calls have not been heeded, following continued fighting between the army and the Rapid Support Forces in Khartoum, Omdurman, Kordofan and other areas.
