The Saudi Press Agency reported that the Minister of Foreign Affairs in Saudi Arabia, Faisal bin Farhan, had made two phone calls with the head of the Sovereignty Council, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, and the Prime Minister of his government, Abdallah Hamdok.

The Saudi minister stressed his country’s keenness on the stability and unity of Sudan, the formation of the new government as soon as possible, and the agreement between the military and civilian components for the benefit of the country.

Since the military coup led by al-Burhan took place on October 25, the country has been without a government after the army chief dissolved the entire transitional authority at the time.

On November 21st, Hamdok and al-Burhan signed an agreement, which reversed some of the decisions made on the 21st, reinstalling the former back as prime minister.

It is believed that differences between Hamdok, components from the revolutionary front, and the military component, delayed the formation of the government.

For about two weeks, conflicting reports have circulated regarding Hamdok’s intention to resign from his position amid the worsening political situation in the country.
