Nairobi, Kenya – President William Ruto has called for an urgent ceasefire in Sudan, emphasizing the need for parties involved to work together towards achieving stability and peace in the country, State House Nairobi announced.

Speaking on Saturday night during a telephone consultation with General Abdel Fattah Abdelrahman al-Burhan, Chairman of the Transitional Sovereign Council of Sudan, President Ruto, who serves as the Chair of the IGAD Quartet of Heads of States on Sudan, stressed the importance of consolidating efforts from both the IGAD and Jeddah Processes.

The President emphasized that a consolidated approach will facilitate the realization of a permanent ceasefire in Sudan, laying the foundation for lasting peace.

He further highlighted the need to prioritize access to humanitarian assistance, the protection of refugees, and the reactivation of the Political Process. These crucial steps will contribute to the restoration of normalcy and pave the way for stability in Sudan.

President Ruto also engaged in a conversation with President Mahamet Idriss Deby Itno of Chad, focusing on the acceleration of efforts to restore normalcy in Sudan and support refugee-hosting countries.
