The French Ministry of Foreign Affairs has issued a statement expressing France praise for the signing of the framework agreement that took place between the military and a large part of the civil opposition in Khartoum, as a prelude to getting out of the rampant political crisis that Sudan has been facing since 2021.
France also commended the joint commitment of the United Nations Integrated Transition Assistance Mission in Sudan, the African Union and the IGAD, which led to the signing of this agreement with the support of international partners.
France described the framework agreement as an important progress for Sudan to resume the democratic transition process that has been suspended for more than a year, stressing that the agreement’s signing should lead to the appointment of a civilian government as soon as possible.
France has reiterated its willingness to support the Sudanese parties in order to conclude a final political agreement that confirms the resumption of the democratic transition process that began in 2019 and sets a clear electoral timetable.
France also affirmed its keenness on the democratic aspirations of the Sudanese people, and expressed its readiness to resume its full engagement in cooperation with the Sudanese authorities as soon as the government is appointed.
