On 22 August the UK and Troika partners (Norway and the US) issued a statement that commended the new Prime Minister of Sudan's commitment to peace, freedom and justice, and highlighted the need to establish peace within its borders. We urge the Sudanese armed movements and the Government of Sudan to engage constructively to achieve a peaceful solution to the conflict in Darfur, one that brings security and stability to all in Sudan. This was reiterated in a statement by the UK at the UN Security Council on 26 August (https://www.gov.uk/government/news/dr-abdalla-hamdok-made-prime-minister-of-sudan-troika-statement).
