Saudi Arabia and the US have emphasized the significance of the ceasefire agreement between warring parties in Sudan, urging them to adhere to their commitments. The Saudi foreign ministry expressed concern that neither side observed its commitment not to seek military advantage during the 48-hour period after the agreement was signed and before it went into effect. Despite the ceasefire signed on May 20, 2023, sporadic artillery fire still echoed in Sudan’s capital on Tuesday. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken warned the warring sides to abide by the latest ceasefire or face possible sanctions. The fighting has killed at least 863 civilians, including at least 190 children, and wounded more than 3,530 others.
