JUBA – The President of Sudan Transitional Sovereign Council, Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, has this evening announced in an address to the nation that the country’s military won’t participate in the dialogue between political parties and that he will dissolve the Transitional Sovereign Council upon formation of a transitional government.
“We will not participate in the tripartite mechanism dialogue to allow the political and revolutionary forces to form an independent government of national competencies,” Al Burhan said in an address distributed live by the state-own Sudan TV.
“After the formation of the executive government, the Sovereignty Council will be dissolved and a higher defense council from the armed forces and rapid support will be formed, responsible for security and defense tasks,” the top Sudanese general said.
He added that the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) which has been accused by the international community and local rights groups of atrocities against civilians during anti-coup protest this week “will not be a vehicle for any political party to rule the country.”
