Talks continue but solution elusive for Sudan’s generals and protesters
There are differences over how a transition to military rule should be handled.
Sudan’s ruling generals and protesters behind months of mass demonstrations that drove autocrat Omar al-Bashir from power have failed to strike a deal but agree to keep talking.
That is after the latest round of negotiations between the two sides that resumed on Sunday, following a three-day pause.
Another round is due on Monday night.
After ousting Mr al-Bashir, the military took over but the protesters remained on the streets, demanding the military hand over power to civilian rule.
Shams al-Deen al-Kabashi, a spokesman for the military council, said the sticking point remains the make-up of the sovereign council that will guide the country through a three-year transition period.
Madani Abbas, a negotiator for the protesters, says he hopes a final deal, acceptable to all Sudanese, will be struck on Monday.
