The US State Department’s African Affairs Bureau published a tweet in which Phee encouraged Sudanese leaders to take the necessary steps to guarantee Sudanese people their aspirations of justice, peace, and freedom.

The US official visited Sudan between 14-16 November, three weeks after the coup d’etat on the 25th of October.

At that time, the parties to the crisis in the country met, including the detained Prime Minister, leaders from the Freedom and Change coalition, and members of civil society.

A week after her visit, al-Burhan and Hamdok signed a 13-article agreement, according to which the latter was reinstated as Prime Minister.

With the third anniversary of the December revolution, the US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken confirmed in a tweet his country’s continued support for the Sudanese.

The call from the US official comes one day after Hamdok announced his intention to resign from his position.
