UAE Applauds UN Ceasefire Resolution for Sudanese Crisis Resolution

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs expresses optimism regarding the ceasefire's potential to resolve the crisis among Sudanese factions.

The United Arab Emirates has joined the United Nations Security Council in calling for an end to the fighting in Sudan during Ramadan, pointing to the dire humanitarian situation as justification. The goal of this initiative is to help end the fighting in Sudan, ease the suffering of the people there, and make it easier to send aid to the areas that need it, especially to the most vulnerable members of society, such as the young, the old, the sick, and women.

The ministry reaffirms its unwavering support for efforts aimed at de-escalation, ceasefire enforcement, and the commencement of political discussions to foster peace and security and meet the Sudanese people's aspirations for stability and prosperity.

The Security Council endorsed a British-proposed resolution halting hostilities during Ramadan, with 14 votes in favor and Russia abstaining. Sudan plunged into warfare on April 15, 2023, between the Sudanese military and the RSF paramilitary forces.
The UN reports that approximately 25 million individuals—equivalent to half of Sudan's population—require humanitarian assistance, with around 8 million displaced from their homes and food insecurity on the rise.

The United States alleges that the conflicting parties have perpetrated war crimes.
This resolution marks a crucial step towards addressing the dire humanitarian situation in Sudan, especially during the holy month of Ramadan.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs underscores the importance of international cooperation and collective action in resolving conflicts and promoting peace. It emphasizes the need for all parties involved to abide by the ceasefire agreement and engage constructively in political dialogue to achieve a lasting solution to the crisis. The UAE stands ready to support efforts aimed at bringing stability and prosperity to Sudan, in line with its commitment to peace, security, and humanitarian assistance in the region.
