  • Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has called for a quick democratic transition in Sudan as he met the country’s ruling generals and protest leaders, days after a deadly crackdown killed dozens of demonstrators in the capital.
  • Mr Ahmed arrived in Khartoum to revive talks between the Sudanese generals and protest leaders after the African Union suspended Sudan until the military makes way for a civilian-led transitional authority.
  • The move by the African bloc was backed by the European Union amid a chorus of condemnation of Sudan’s military rulers over Monday’s deadly crackdown on a weeks-long sit-in outside army headquarters demanding civilian rule.
  • After holding separate meetings with the generals and protest leaders, Mr Ahmed in a signed statement issued that the Army, the people and political forces have to act with courage and responsibility by taking quick steps towards a democratic and consensual transitional period.
