The head of the Sudanese Transitional Sovereignty Council, Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, accused Ethiopia of breaking its covenants with Sudan, explaining that the Sudanese forces’ doctrine is based primarily on defense and not aggression.
Addressing the officers and soldiers of the Bahri Military Region today, Al-Burhan said, “The armed forces are determined to build a dear, strong and free nation in partnership with the various sectors of the Sudanese people and their political forces, in order to achieve the people’s aspirations and meet their aspirations for freedom, peace, justice and decent living.”
Al-Burhan commented on the situation at the eastern borders of Sudan, stressing that “the Sudanese armed forces have opened up inside the borders with Ethiopia and have re-secured them and that they will not retreat from their positions as they were not an aggressor.”
The proof indicated that “the armed forces, according to the constitutional document, work in perfect harmony with the partners of the transitional period from the forces of freedom and change and peace partners from the armed struggle movements to implement the tasks of the stage.”
He also called on the political forces in the country to accelerate the completion of the transitional period structures represented by the Transitional Legislative Council, and to form the Constitutional Court “to move forward in implementing and consolidating the slogans of the glorious December revolution in freedom, peace and justice.”
The head of the Sovereignty Council affirmed that the government in the country seeks to “build a unified military institution that protects Sudan and the state’s executive apparatus and has no ambitions for governance.”
