President Salva Kiir on Friday returned to Juba after attending the Summit of Sudan’s neighbours in Cairo.

The summit in Egypt seeks to set effective framework to peacefully settle the Sudan crisis in coordination with other regional and international tracks.

According to the office of the President, President Kiir presented five-point recommendations crucial to finding a comprehensive peaceful and political settlement in Sudan while “prioritizing the interests of the Sudanese people.”

During the summit, Kiir had warned against foreign intervention in the Sudan conflict.

He said any solution to the crisis should respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Sudan.

“Our priorities include finding African solutions to the continent’s crises,” he said.

Presidential Affairs Minister Dr. Barnaba Marial Benjamin said the Summit was successful as “it has agreed to work to resolve the crisis in Sudan”.

Both Egyptian President Abdel Fatta El Sisi and President Kiir have been in close contacts exchanging views on the conduct of the Summit to address the conflict in Sudan.

Foreign Ministers of the neighboring countries will meet in Chad in the coming days to discuss the way forward and follow up the resolutions of the Cairo Summit.

Several ceasefires brokered by the United States of America and Saudi Arabia have failed, as fighting spread to other major towns Sudan.

The armed conflict between the military government of Sudan and the Paramilitary Rapid Support Force began on 15 April 2023 in Khartoum.

Over 3 million people have been displaced by the conflict, according to the United Nations.
