star this property answer text <p>​The Troika countries (UK, US and Norway) are engaging with the Transitional Military Council (TMC) and Forces of Freedom and Change (FFC), and regional allies to support the political agreement setting out the transition to civilian rule. We urge all sides to finalise swiftly the Constitutional Declaration and implement the full agreement. Our Embassy in Khartoum closely monitors the human rights situation in Sudan, and raises our concerns in meeting with the authorities on the political situation. The UK, alongside Troika partners, will continue to maintain an international spotlight on the human rights situation in order to encourage accountability and try and prevent further human rights violations. On 29 June, Troika countries issued a joint statement that called on the TMC to respect the rights of the people of Sudan to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly, permit peaceful protests, and avoid any use of violence. The Troika released a further joint statement on 18 July. This welcomed the commitment of the TMC and FFC to support an independent investigation into acts of violence, including on 3 June.</p>
