0 130

The United States has urged the United Nations Security Council to intervene and help resolve a nearly year-long conflict in Sudan between the Sudanese army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF), emphasizing the urgent need for action to address the escalating humanitarian crisis.

According to the United States, both warring parties in Sudan have been implicated in war crimes, while the RSF and allied militias are accused of committing crimes against humanity and perpetrating ethnic cleansing.

The UN reports that approximately 25 million people, representing half of Sudan’s population, require humanitarian assistance, with around 8 million individuals displaced from their homes, exacerbating hunger and food insecurity.

U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, stressed the critical nature of the situation, emphasizing the need for heightened attention from the Security Council to address the unfolding crisis in Sudan. Thomas-Greenfield called for urgent action to alleviate human suffering, hold perpetrators accountable, and facilitate a resolution to the conflict. However, she did not specify the exact measures the 15-member council should undertake.
