    Turkey is negotiating a cease-fire with Sudan’s warring parties, according to Turkey’s foreign minister on Wednesday.

    “In Sudan, both sides are our brothers. Why should we pick sides in this case? “We’re negotiating with both sides to end the conflict,” Mevlut Cavusoglu said at an event in Turkey’s Antalya province.

    Cavusoglu predicted that a cease-fire will be concluded on Thursday.

    He also stated that Turkish people who wish to return home will be removed from Sudan when the airspace reopens on Thursday.

    He stated that numerous countries, including those in Europe, have requested Turkish assistance in evacuating their citizens from Sudan.

    The Sudanese army and RSF fighters clashed for the fifth day in Khartoum and its surrounding areas, killing at least 270 people and injuring 2,600 more, according to the Health Ministry.

    While the RSF accused the army of attacking its men south of Khartoum with light and heavy weapons, the military accused the paramilitary force of “spreading lies” and labeled it a “rebel” organization.

    A disagreement between the two military adversaries over military and security reform, which includes full RSF involvement in the army, has escalated into a heated struggle in recent months.

    The conflict between the two sides erupted last week, when the army claimed that recent RSF movements were uncoordinated and illegal.

    Sudan has been without a functioning government since October 2021, when the military deposed Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok’s transitional government and established a state of emergency, a move that political forces have labeled as a “coup.”

    Sudan’s transitional period, which began in August 2019, was supposed to end in early 2024 with elections.
