​Along with Africa Union and Ethiopian mediation efforts the Troika (UK, US and Norway) engaged frequently with members of the Transitional Military Council and the Forces of Freedom and Change to encourage an agreement. The UK and our Troika partners welcomed the signing of a Constitutional Declaration on 17 August setting out the process of transition to civilian-led government. On 22 August the UK, with Troika countries, issued a statement congratulating Dr. Abdalla Hamdok on his appointment as Prime Minister and commended his commitment to freedom, peace and justice (https://www.gov.uk/government/news/dr-abdalla-hamdok-made-prime-minister-of-sudan-troika-statement).
