Sudan’s FFC: the war will lead to division

As the deadly conflict between the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) in Sudan enters its sixth month with no hope for a near resolution, Yasir Arman, the spokesperson for the Forces of Freedom and Change (FFC), affirmed that this war could lead the country to division if it does not cease soon.

In an interview on Thursday, he emphasized that any attempt to divide the country into two governments would escalate the conflict.

He also stated that forming a government in Port Sudan would not benefit the country, alluding to statements by the army’s leader, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, and the leader of the RSF, Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, about forming separate governments in Port Sudan and Khartoum, respectively.

Arman condemned the crimes and the violations committed in Darfur, considering that what he referred to as the Islamists were the ones who pushed the conflict parties into war.

“We demand that al-Burhan revives the Jeddah path to end the war.” Arman added, emphasizing the necessity of returning to the negotiation table.

He also stressed that what is currently required is a cessation of hostilities and a resort to dialogue. He added, “The conflicting parties envisioned that the war would be swift, which did not happen.”

However, he pointed out that factions loyal to the former regime (Omar al-Bashir) seek to prolong the duration of the conflict.

Arman concluded by emphasizing the FFC’s support for a unified, national, and professional army formation that is not under the control of any political faction from any side.

It is worth noting that the issue of forming two governments was raised weeks ago by both al-Burhan and Dagalo, amid the ongoing fighting between the two major military forces in the country, with no apparent resolution in sight.
