Page expresses “serious alarm” about crisis in Sudan

December 2, 2021 Dabanga

Ambassador Susan D. Page joined former colleagues and academics in publishing An Appeal on Sudan to Senior United States Government Officials.

The group, identifying themselves as “concerned individuals”, said, “The military takeover on 25 October 2021 undermines the hard won political and civil rights of the Sudanese people, and we believe that Sudan continues to matter significantly to United States interests—on human rights, humanitarian, democratic and security grounds.” The undersigned noted that the “United States must conceive of a clear roadmap, with specific benchmarks and consequences, for Sudan’s transition and join actively in a strong multilateral strategy with European powers and other interested countries to end Sudan’s transitional crisis.”
