The head of the Transitional Sovereignty Council and commander-in-chief of the Sudanese army, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, said that the political process in Sudan is contingent on the end of the war, and stressed that peace in the country will not be achieved unless the rebellion ends.

Al-Burhan said during a speech to officers and soldiers of the Sudanese army in the eastern state of Gedarif, that no one committed to the peace negotiations that took place in the Saudi city of Jeddah, and the agreement between the parties on many commitments and covenants.

Referring to RSF commander Mohamed Hamdan Daglo (Hemedti), Burhan asked: “How can you conclude a peace agreement with someone who does not abide, and every day has a different opinion? So, we say there will be no peace until after the end of this rebellion.”

Burhan sent a message to politicians who talk about warmongers, saying: “The warmongers are those who carry their weapons and attack citizens, and those who seek weapons from outside the country to kill the Sudanese.”

Burhan continued: “The battle has now taken a different character from the past ten months, and the battle has now become necessary and obligatory to restore the dignity of the people whose rights have been violated.”

The Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces have been fighting a devastating war since mid-April 2023, leaving more than 13,000 dead, and about 8 million displaced and refugees, according to United Nations estimates.
