Blinken ‘encouraged’ by new deal in Sudan

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has said he is “encouraged” by the deal to reverse the military takeover in Sudan.

It comes after the reinstatement of Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok on Sunday, following last month’s coup when he was put under house arrest.

Mr Blinken has called on the authorities not to use excessive force against peaceful protesters.

He tweeted that the authorities should now conclude the return to a civilian-led transition: Mr Blinken had called for the reinstatement of Mr Hamdok during his first Africa tour last week.
