UAE welcomes agreement to protect civilians in Sudan


The UAE has welcomed a deal between Sudan's warring factions to protect civilians and allow humanitarian access.

Representatives of the Sudanese Armed Forces and the Rapid Support Forces signed a Declaration of Commitment to facilitate relief work and meet the urgent needs of civilians.

In a statement, the UAE's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MoFAIC) commended the efforts made by Saudi Arabia and the United States to facilitate the signing of this Declaration in Jeddah.

It provides for a ten-day ceasefire to enable the delivery of relief supplies and humanitarian aid, and advances efforts to end the conflict between the rival parties.

The Ministry expressed hope that the latest move would contribute to the arrival of relief and humanitarian aid in affected areas and help secure a permanent ceasefire.
