Despite the formal pause in the Jeddah talks and the expiration on June 3 of the five-day ceasefire agreement, the delegations from the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) remain in Jeddah, and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United States of America, as facilitators, continue to facilitate talks between the two parties daily.
Those discussions are focused on facilitating humanitarian assistance and reaching an agreement on near-term steps the parties must take before the Jeddah talks resume.
? Facilitators stand ready to resume formal talks and remind the parties that they must implement their obligations under the May 11 Jeddah Declaration of Commitment to Protect the Civilians of Sudan.
Saudi Arabia and the United States remain steadfast in their commitment to the people of Sudan and call upon the parties to agree to and effectively implement a new ceasefire, with the aim of arriving at a permanent cessation of hostilities.
