The Arab League urged the international community on Saturday to prevent the collapse of national institutions in Sudan and embark on salvaging the war-torn nation.
“The nature of the conflict in Sudan presses the need for concerted international efforts to salvage Sudan’s national institutions and prevent their collapse, according to what was stated in the final declaration of the Jeddah Summit and African decisions,” said Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit.
He added that it was crucial to build on the Jeddah Summit meetings to end the Sudanese crisis, and adhere to its outcomes represented in agreements on a short-term ceasefire and humanitarian arrangements.
Aboul Gheit’s remarks came at the African Union Peace and Security Council meeting that was held at the level of heads of states and government level to discuss the crisis in Sudan.
He pointed to the outcomes of the Jeddah Summit held earlier this month between the rival Sudanese parties.
The Secretary-General of the League stressed "the importance of renewing the armistice and reaching a sustainable ceasefire agreement within the framework of preserving Sudan's sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity, and supporting the comprehensive Sudanese political track that achieves the aspirations of the Sudanese people for peace, security and development."
He also stressed the need for doubling efforts to meet the urgent humanitarian needs of the people, and for effective coordination with the Red Crescent and Red Cross organizations, and United Nations humanitarian organizations, in cooperation with the relevant authorities.
