Turkey welcomes power sharing agreement in Sudan

The military council that has ruled the country since the fall of President Omar al-Bashir in April and a coalition of opposition and protest groups have temporarily agreed to share power for three years.

The power-sharing deal comes after intense mediation by Ethiopia and African Union diplomats.

Two Egyptian officials with direct knowledge of Booth's meetings in Cairo last month said the US urged President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi to back the AU and Ethiopian proposal and "pressure" Gen. Abdel-Fattah Burhan, the head of the ruling military council, to respond positively.

Sudanese officials say last week's power-sharing agreement between the military and pro-democracy protesters came after the USA and its Arab allies pressured both sides, amid fears a prolonged crisis could tip the country into civil war. This time could give military leaders an opportunity to consolidate their political power and undermine the capacity of opposition leaders to organise mass protests.

Meanwhile, the Arab League also expressed admiration of the settlement worked out between the transitional Sudanese military council and the forces of freedom on forming a ruling council and a government of technocrats.

Just last Sunday, there were nationwide demonstrations demanding the transfer of power to civilian hands, in which at least seven were reportedly killed, with more than 180 injured.

The Arab League Secretary General, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, expressed in a statement appreciation for the positive and constructive spirit, demonstrated by the council, leaders of the forces of change, the other political and civil movements. By the end of the over three-hour-long meeting, the two sides had agreed to thrash out an agreement within days.
