  • Egypt called on the parties to the political conflict in Sudan to take part in choosing a new, consensual transitional prime minister in preparation for the formation of a new Cabinet as soon as possible.
  • Sudan has been going through a state of political instability and insecurity since the military coup in October 2021, through which the army seized power, ending a power-sharing arrangement with civilian partners in governance and which was aimed at paving the way for democratic elections.
  • The Egyptian position is considered in line with the positions of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), as the leaders of the three countries had close relations with the leaders of the Sudanese army.
