AU denounces 'dishonest' Sudan talks

No Image

The African Union has said it will not be party to talks that exclude significant actors in an effort to get Sudan's transition back on track after last year's military coup. Sudan's main civilian players have so far boycotted talks with military leaders launched under international auspices earlier this month on reaching a political accommodation that would enable the restoration of desperately needed Western aid.


"The AU cannot continue these dishonest, opaque discussions which sideline participants or treat them in an unjust way," the bloc's ambassador to Sudan, Mohammed Belaiche, told reporters. But the AU denied it was abandoning the so-called "troika" of sponsors of the talks process, which also includes the United Nations and East African regional grouping IGAD. - AFP
