The African Union (AU) has an important role to play in solving the crisis in Sudan. We welcome the leadership of the AU has shown in suspending Sudan from the AU, in condemning the recent violence and in calling for a swift move to civilian-led government. The UK is working closely with the AU to promote comprehensive peace negotiations through our role in the Troika, alongside the USA and Norway, building on our long standing support to the AU's mediation efforts to encourage peace and Security in Sudan.
