Sudan’s main opposition coalition is meeting with military -sources

KHARTOUM (Reuters) -Sudan’s main civilian opposition coalition has begun an “unofficial” meeting with the military mediated by the United States and Saudi Arabia, two political sources said on Thursday.

The meeting is the first of its kind since the military took over power in Sudan in October 2021.

The coalition known as the Forces of Freedom and Change (FFC) agreed to “unofficially” meet with the military to “discuss means of ending the 25th of October coup and handing Power over to civilian coalitions”, Sudan’s Congress party announced in a statement on Thursday.

The coup ended a power-sharing arrangement agreed in 2019 with civilian political parties following the ouster of President Omar al-Bashir.
