Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken held calls with Kenyan President William Ruto and Comorian President and current African Union President Azali Assoumani on May 1 to reiterate the support of the United States for collective international action to end the fighting in Sudan and ensure unimpeded humanitarian access. The Secretary thanked the two presidents for their leadership and stressed his support for the AU-led international effort to develop an urgent plan for de-escalation, as called for in the AU’s April 20 communique. They discussed the importance of continuing cooperation in pressing the Sudanese Armed Forces and the Rapid Support Forces to uphold the current ceasefire and begin negotiations on a more durable end to the conflict and unimpeded humanitarian access.
