President of the Transitional Sovereignty Council (TSC) and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces General Abdel-Fattah Al-Burhan has reaffirmed the Armed Forces’ commitment to moving forward with the framework agreement and the process of democratic transition.

Al-Burhan said in his address to the inauguration ceremony of the security and military reform workshop in the Friendship Hall that the Armed Forces have gone through many experiences during their 100-year history, stressing building Armed Forces compatible with democratic systems, and that it is necessary to benefit from the experiences.

Al-Burhan emphasized that security and military reform is a complex process that cannot be bypassed easily and requires a closer look at the aspect of military doctrine and laying the correct pillars for building professional Armed Forces without involving them in political battles.

He underscored importance of reforming the state’s organs, and called on the holdouts to review the terms of the framework agreement and to sit down to discuss them with the signatory political forces.

The President of the Transitional Sovereignty Council called on Abdul-Aziz Al-Hilu and Abdul- Wahid Mohamed Al-Nur to join the peace process in the country and the democratic transition, indicating that Sudan is moving towards peace and construction.

Al-Burhan pointed out that the Armed Forces don’t want to empower any unelected political body, stressing that the political process that is taking place is purely Sudanese.

He called for making use historical experiences and standards to build armed forces that are reliable for the Sudanese people, welcoming women to the military college and participation in military work, adding that they represent 12% of the Armed Forces, praising support provided by international friends and the international community to the country for democratic transition.
