Saudi Arabia and the United States are keen to continue talks with the two Sudanese negotiating delegations, they add.
With instability in Sudan getting out of hand after a US promoted ceasefire collapsed today, and with Africans and Americans still trapped in the war zone, I went to meet with the ambassadors of Sudan and South Sudan today to discuss peace. I’m now less optimistic!… pic.twitter.com/tkbxhNEuKH
