Warring factions in Sudan not taking advantage of Jeddah talks – U.S. official


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Sudan’s warring factions are not taking advantage of talks facilitated by the United States and Saudi Arabia, a senior U.S. State Department official said on Tuesday.

The talks in Jeddah, intended to lead in steps towards a permanent cessation of hostilities, are not succeeding in the way originally agreed with the Sudan’s army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF), the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told reporters in Washington.
