Sudan’s new military rulers meet European diplomats
Deputy head of ruling army council meets with UK, Dutch and EU ambassadors

By Adel Abdel-Rahim

KHARTOUM (AA) – Lieutenant-General Mohamed Hamdan Daglo, deputy head of Sudan's ruling military council, held separate meetings on Monday with three European ambassadors in capital Khartoum.

On its official Facebook page, Sudan’s Rapid Support Forces (of which Daglo is commander) published photos of Daglo holding separate meetings with U.K. Ambassador Irfan Siddiq, Dutch Ambassador Karin M. Boven, and EU Ambassador Jean Michel Dimond.

It provided no further details about Monday’s meetings.

One day earlier, Daglo also briefed U.S. Charge d'Affaires Steven Koutsis on the latest developments in the troubled country.

Last week, the Sudanese army ousted longtime President Omar al-Bashir, who had ruled Sudan since 1989, following months of popular demonstrations against his continued rule.

The army also announced the establishment of a military council that will run the country’s affairs for a two-year transitional period.

On Saturday, Lieutenant-General Abdel-Fattah Burhan, head of the military council, pledged to carry out wide-ranging political and economic reforms.

In a televised address, Burhan said that the two-year transitional period would conclude with “free and fair” elections.

He also vowed to prosecute corrupt officials linked to the al-Bashir regime, along with anyone found to be responsible for the recent killing of anti-regime protesters.
