Saudi Arabia, United States call for agreement to extend ceasefire

As facilitators of the Agreement on a Short-Term Ceasefire and Humanitarian Arrangements, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United States of America call on the Sudanese Armed Forces and the Rapid Support Forces to continue discussions to reach agreement on extending the ceasefire that is set to expire at 9:45 pm Khartoum time May 29.

While imperfect, an extension nonetheless will facilitate the delivery of urgently needed humanitarian assistance to the Sudanese people. In the absence of an agreement to extend the current ceasefire, it remains incumbent on the parties to adhere to their obligations under the short-term ceasefire and the preceding Declaration of Commitment to Protect the Civilians of Sudan.
