Sudan: General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan to speed up transition process

Sudan’s military chief, General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, has agreed to accelerate the return to a transitional government following talks with the United States and the United Nations.

The UN special envoy for Sudan, Volker Perthes, said the discussions had yielded the outline of a potential deal to reverse last month’s coup, including the reinstatement of the deposed prime minister, Abdalla Hamdok.

PM Abdalla Hamdok, however, remains under house arrest, though four of his ministers are being released.
