We continue to work closely with our international partners in addressing the conflict and dire humanitarian situation in Sudan. Most recently, on 3 November, the Minister for Development and Africa called on Sudan's warring parties to protect civilians, de-escalate fighting in El Fasher, refrain from ethnically-targeted violence, and focus on negotiating an end to the conflict, following a similar statement from the US Government. We remain open to considering further sanctions in continuing efforts to press the parties to engage in a sustained and meaningful peace process, ensure humanitarian access, and commit to a permanent cessation of hostilities. The UK Government does not speculate on future designations; to do so could reduce their impact.
