Talks between the two collapsed last week when security forces stormed a sit-in that had been the focal point of Sudan’s protest movement for nearly two months.

Tibor Nagy, the U.S. assistant secretary for Africa, will also discuss a political solution for Sudan during a visit to Ethiopia, whose Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has tried to mediate between the military council and protest movement.

“He will call for a cessation of attacks against civilians and urge parties to work toward creating an enabling environment ... for talks to resume,” the State Department said, adding that Nagy will later travel to Mozambique and South Africa,REUTERS.
