Response to July 5 Agreement Announcement in Sudan

The United States government welcomes the progress in negotiations which we hope will lead to the establishment of a civilian-led transitional government that is broadly acceptable to the Sudanese people.  We commend the mediators from the African Union and Ethiopia for their ongoing efforts.

The agreement between the Forces for Freedom and Change and the Transitional Military Council to establish a sovereign council is an important step forward.  We look forward to immediate resumption of access to the internet, establishment of the new legislature, accountability for the violent suppression of peaceful protests, and progress toward free and fair elections.

Special Envoy for Sudan Don Booth will continue to support the African Union/Ethiopia-led mediation process and will be returning to the region soon.
