The European Union described the agreement between the Transitional Military Council and the forces of freedom and change in Sudan over handing power to civilians and the transitional period as a “positive step”.
EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mujerini, said that Brussels closely follow the developments of the Sudanese scene.
The negotiations between the military and civilians should continue to resolve issues related to building confidence and addressing the legitimate demands of the Sudanese people, spokeswoman for the European Union’s foreign affairs minister, Maya Kosiancic said in the statement issued today on Sudan.
“The negotiators from both sides must be responsible and seek compromise solutions to reach a comprehensive deal that allows for a rapid and orderly transition in Sudan,” she said according to the statement.
The EU appeals to all parties in Sudan to exercise maximum restraint and respect for fundamental freedoms.
The European statement also referred to the attack on the demonstrators two days ago in the Sudanese capital Khartoum which led to the deaths of victims, saying that “it is unacceptable and needs a comprehensive investigation to hold accountable those responsible for”.
The European Union reiterated its support to the steps of the African Union to help move the political transition in Sudan forward as did since the beginning of the popular uprising in Sudan.
