Libya hosts Sudan peace talks

Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, Sudan’s Sovereignty Council and army chief has arrived in Tripoli, Libya, Monday to discuss a proposed ceasefire.

Mohamed al-Menfi, Libyan Presidential Council chairman met him at the airport ahead of a meeting Tripoli-based Government of National Unity (GNU), Abdul Hamid Dbeibah.

Dbeibah initiated the ceasefire proposal that he discussed on Saturday with Rapid Support Forces (RSF) commander Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo.

The war in Sudan is rapidly transcending into complete chaos and mass starvation is looming as a deadly future for millions of refugees.

Food has become a weapon. Aid workers at the weekend decried a blockade by the Sudanese army that is refusing to allow aid deliveries to Darfur, an epicentre of the fighting.

The RSF is employing a “scorched earth” war tactic, deliberately destroying crops, fields and villages. It holds four out of the five major cities in the region.

That has forced more than 650,000 Darfur citizens into neighbouring Chad, stuck between starvation and conflict.

The Sudanese military has denied US and World Food Programme accusations that it has closed the Chad-Darfur border. It claims the RSF is using the border to smuggle weapons used in “atrocities” in the region.

Aid workers say children and babies are already dying from hunger and malnutrition. A further blockade will be disastrous, the say.
