The speech of the Sudanese Army Commander-in-Chief Abdel Fattah Al Burhan before the United Nations General Assembly has been disappointing and failed to deliver any clear commitments towards dealing with the tragedy the Sudanese people living in, the FFC said in a statement on Friday.
Al Burhan addressed the UN General Assembly 78 on Thursday evening in New York.
The FFC said “the address had been expected to focus on how to end the current vicious war which caused the death of thousands, displaced million and is leaving more than half of the population in need of urgent humanitarian assistance. But he failed to deliver any clear commitments towards dealing with the tragedy the Sudanese are live in.”
The country is now experiencing an ordeal that threatens its existence and endangers its unity and sovereignty and destroying lives of its people in an unprecedented way, the FFC said. Such situation requires wisdom from all parties and resorting to peaceful negotiated solutions instead of armed confrontations, the alliance added.
The alliance urged the warring parties to return to the negotiations table to forge a political resolution for the root causes of the crisis and end the human tragedy of the Sudanese people.
“It is ironic that the chief of the army pointed in his speech to the escape of leaders of the deposed National Congress party, who are ICC fugitives, from prison while it is common knowledge that those fugitives are now freely engaged in activities in east Sudan, with army protection. They make use of the army and exploiting it’s resources in mobilization for continuation of the war”, the FFC said.
