The British Government frequently engages with a broad range of Sudanese diaspora in the UK. While the former Foreign Secretary has not recently spoken to his Sudanese counterpart about engagement between the Sudanese population and the diaspora community in the UK the UK Envoy to Sudan and South Sudan discussed engagement with the diaspora with the Sudanese authorities when he was in Khartoum on 23 June. He last met with members of the diaspora on 13 June. The Government is committed to working with all Sudanese parties and members of civil society both in Sudan and the UK to support the transition to a civilian-led government.
