The Cairo meeting is a continuation of rounds of dialogue between the Sudanese federal factions in Khartoum, an official statement said.

The coordinating committee will be in charge of issuing a decision to form the executive authorities and specialised committees and determine their tasks.

The committee will also communicate with the effective political and social powers to achieve the national interests and mobilise the capacities of the Sudanese youth and women so that they can perform their national and partisan work.

During the meeting, the parties also agreed to work jointly to achieve democratic transformation, guarantee rights and freedoms, respect national sovereignty, and reject foreign interference in Sudanese internal affairs.

They also emphasised the need for achieving justice and social peace and contributing with national forces to complete the ongoing transitional phase in order to reach free, fair and transparent elections.

Sudan has been mired in a political turbulence and economic woes since a military takeover in October last year, which dissolved the government and suspended some provisions of the constitutional document governing the political transition in the country.

Amid near-daily protests calling for the removal of the military from power, Chairman of Sudanese Transitional Sovereign Council Abdel-Fattah Al-Burhan said general elections will be held in 2023, promising that the military will abandon politics afterwards.

The UN envoy for Sudan warned Monday the east African nation is heading for “an economic and security collapse'' amid the Russia-Ukraine crisis unless it addresses the political paralysis and moves toward resuming a civilian-led transition.
