During his meeting at the Republican Palace, Volker Peretz, representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations, head of the United Nations Integrated Mission to Support the Transitional Period in Sudan (UNITAMS), urged the United Nations to “provide the humanitarian support required for Sudan to overcome humanitarian difficulties during the transitional period.”
He also called on the Sudanese people to “support and support the government that Hamdok will form, during the coming period.”
For his part, the head of the Unitams mission affirmed, “the United Nations’ interest in the success of the transitional period,” considering that the November 21 agreement signed between Al-Burhan and Hamdok, is an “advanced step in the direction of national consensus among the Sudanese.”
He also noted the “great steps that have been taken in implementing the terms of the agreement, foremost of which is the release of political detainees.”
Volcker called for “the necessity of supporting the prime minister to form his government,” stressing his “confidence in Hamdok’s abilities to make the democratic transition a success.”
In another context, the Transitional Sovereignty Council appointed, on Thursday, Khalifa Ahmed, the designated attorney general, according to Reuters news agency.
The council had approved, in a previous session, the appointment of Abdul Aziz Fath Al-Rahman Abdeen as chief of the judiciary, to complete the structures of the judicial and human rights authorities in the country.
And he explained in a statement that “he was briefed on the overall security situation in the country, against the background of the attacks that targeted the armed forces on the eastern borders.”
