Sudan’s Army Chief Initiates Talks to End Prolonged Conflict: A Glimpse of Hope?



In a pivotal development towards ending the months-long conflict plaguing Sudan, General Abdel Fattah Burhan, the head of Sudan’s army, engaged in talks with government officials for the first time since the eruption of the conflict in mid-April.

The conflict, which has led to chaos and devastation across the country, has seen a power struggle between Gen. Burhan’s military and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF), commanded by Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo.

The conflict’s repercussions have been far-reaching, affecting critical sectors like health and food supply.

Sudan’s information minister expressed confidence that these disruptions would soon come to an end, as the nation’s productive sectors would experience renewed focus and output.

Gen. Burhan, in a public address during his first tour outside the capital since the conflict began, emphasized the decline of the RSF rebellion and the proximity of victory.

Port Sudan, the site of the recent meeting, has been transformed into an urban battlefield, with RSF controlling significant portions of the city.

Gen. Burhan’s presence there highlighted the strategic military operations that enabled him to exit the besieged capital’s army headquarters safely.

Nonetheless, the operation resulted in casualties, further underscoring the violence that has engulfed the nation.

According to official estimates, the conflict has already claimed the lives of over 4,000 people, although activists and medical professionals on the ground suggest the true toll is likely much higher.

In light of this devastating reality, Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo proposed a 10-point initiative called “Sudan Reborn,” aimed at reigniting peace talks between the warring factions.

The initiative outlines plans for a durable cease-fire, democratic elections, and the establishment of a unified national army.

As Sudan navigates through this critical juncture, the talks between Gen. Burhan and government officials offer a glimmer of hope for a resolution to the protracted conflict.

The outcomes of these discussions will likely shape the future trajectory of Sudan, determining whether the nation can emerge from the throes of violence and division into an era of stability and recovery.
