    Washington suspends aid to Sudan over the arrest of civilian government officials

    Today, Monday, the US State Department announced the suspension of US aid to Sudan, against the backdrop of the arrest of civilian government officials by the military.

    Washington considered that the arrest of civilian officials in the Sudanese government undermines the country’s transition to democratic civilian rule.

    The US State Department added that it takes into account “legitimate concerns” about the transition process in Sudan, and decided to suspend the provision of assistance from emergency allocations of $ 700 million.

    US State Department spokesman Ned Price said that no aid has yet been transferred from the amount allocated to Sudan, and therefore the entire amount will be suspended.
