Under Secretary for Political Affairs David Hale met yesterday with Sudan’s Transitional Military Council Chairman, General Abdel Fattah el-Burhan.  They discussed the need for swift formation of a civilian-led transitional government in line with the recently-agreed political and constitutional documents, which the United States supports.  The Under Secretary noted that the transitional government has a significant mandate to end internal conflicts, pursue economic reforms, credibly investigate recent acts of violence, prepare a new constitution, and organize free and fair elections.  The interlocutors agreed that success will be critical to advancing the interests of both of our countries.

The United States remains a steadfast partner to the Sudanese people in their pursuit of a civilian-led government that will advance peace, security, and prosperity.
