star this property answer text <p>The statement of 9 April made clear that the UK and our Troika partners, Norway and the United States, continue to support an inclusive political settlement in Sudan that addresses long standing conflicts and delivers economic and political reforms, more recently one that responds credibly to protestor demands. This remains the case following the removal of Omar al-Bashir as President. We also welcome the African Union’s statement of 11 April expressing solidarity with the people of Sudan, a commitment to support them, and that a military take-over is not the appropriate response to the challenges facing Sudan.</p> more like this

We welcomed the Government of Sudan's extension of the unilateral cessation of hostilities to 30 June 2018 and urged both the Government and rebel movements to abide by their announcements so that peace negotiations can resume in a conducive environment. A communique of the Fifth Round is available on the British Government's website.</p><p>Reports of violence in Blue Nile State emerged after the Strategic Dialogue. We raised our concerns about them with the Government of Sudan on 9 May, reiterating the UK and international community's expectation that the unilateral cessations of hostilities is observed by both sides. While presenting his credentials to the President of Sudan on 14 May, the British Ambassador took the opportunity to repeat this message. Additionally, the UK Defence Attaché raised the issue with the Sudanese Armed Forces on the same date.</p>

In December 2017, shortly following these reports, the Belgian Commissioner-General for Refugees and Stateless Persons launched an inquiry regarding the risk in cases of return to Sudan. This inquiry has now completed its investigation, but has not been able conclusively to verify whether or not the allegations were accurate. It is vital that all individuals returning to Sudan are treated in accordance with international standards.</p> more like this
