The Sudanese conflict has been a long-standing issue that has taken a toll on the nation’s peace and stability.
However, the recent development regarding a truce between Sudan’s warring generals has provided a glimmer of hope.
US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, announced that the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) have agreed to a three-day ceasefire.
This is not the first attempt to pause the conflict, but Blinken is optimistic that this time the truce will hold.
After two days of intense negotiations, both parties have agreed to implement a nationwide ceasefire that is set to begin at midnight on April 24th and last for 72 hours.

The international community continues to closely monitor the situation and support Sudan’s efforts towards lasting peace and stability.
