"We do not want to waste time in talking. We want to move forward," Al-Burhan, also chairman of Sudan’s Transitional Sovereign Council, made the remarks while addressing soldiers at a military base in the New Halfa area in eastern Sudan.
Al-Burhan commended the Sudanese people’s support for the army, saying "the Sudanese people and the army are together in one trench until this rebellion is defeated."
He added that "the army is advancing in its battle to defeat the rebellion of the RSF backed by unprecedented popular support."
Sudan has been witnessing deadly clashes between the SAF and the RSF since April 15, 2023. More than 13,000 people have been killed and over 9 million displaced since the fighting broke out, according to estimates released last week by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
