December 8, 2021 (KHARTOUM) – The Chairman of the Sovereign Council and Commander in Chief of the Sudanese Armed Forces accused foreign diplomats of inciting the Sudanese to show hostility to the army.

Abdel-Fattah al-Burhan made his accusations on Wednesday in a speech to soldiers who participated in military exercises held in the Al-Maaqil area of River Nile State.

“Diplomatic missions roam among the citizens, and some diplomats incite them to show their hostility to the army in order to find an opportunity to interfere in Sudanese affairs,” he said.

Al-Burhan warned of the consequences of these moves, alluding he would take measures against them.

“We will not hesitate to take action against anyone who violates the security of Sudan,” he said.

However, he did not name these missions, nor did he specify the measures he had threatened to take.

EU diplomats on Tuesday met with the Prime Minister and encouraged him to work for national consensus and recalled their call to restore the legal framework agreed in 2019 for the transition.

Western countries mainly the EU and Troika countries have stopped their economic support to the transition in Sudan stressing that it would resume after the restoration of the transitional institutions agreed in the constitutional declaration.

In Washington, U.S. lawmakers prepare legislation imposing targeted sanctions on the coup leaders and their allied groups for obstructing democratic reforms in the country.

Al-Burhan reiterated his commitment to the political agreement he signed with Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok on November 21, near a month after the military takeover on October 25, 2021.

“We are committed to the agreement with Hamdok, and we support the government to get to the elections,” he said.

Al-Burhan stressed that the new cabinet should mainly focus on specific tasks namely, people’s livelihood, providing security, working to sustain peace and preparing for elections.

The dissolved government of the Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC) was also working to dismantle the former regime and restructure the national economy ending the army economic activities and the looting of mineral resources by the army and the Rapid Support Forces.

Al-Burhan said the army has the ability to bring to justice those who committed crimes against the Sudanese people in the capital, Khartoum, and Darfur.

44 demonstrators were killed by police and security forces, during the anti-coup protests organized by the resistance committees.

Al-Burhan is accused of obstructing al-Bashir Handover to the war crimes court in The Hague. Also, a Sudanese investigation committee into the killing of civilian protesters before and after the revolution failed to finalize its activities.

Al-Burhan pointed out that the training of the army forces is not directed against any country.

“Most of the neighbouring countries are experiencing crises that require us to be ready to protect Sudan,” he added.
