The U.S. State Department on Thursday called on Sudan’s military to step aside and make way for a peaceful civilian-led transition, as protesters in Khartoum kept up demands for the country’s transitional military council to hand over power to civilians.


“The will of the Sudanese people is clear: it is time to move toward a transitional government that is inclusive and respectful of human rights and the rule of law,” department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said in a statement.

The statement appeared to clarify the U.S. position towards the military council’s hold on the country, after Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir was ousted on April 11 after weeks of mass protests.
