Khartoum, 26 March. A seminar on security and military reform started in the Great Hall of Friendship in Khartoum. This was announced by the representative of the civil parties participating in the political dialogue, Khaled Omar.

The event is expected to last four days. It takes place as part of the final stage in the transfer of power from the military to civilians. Security and military reform is one of the five issues carried over from the framework agreement for further discussions and amendments.

According to Omar, the seminar is attended by representatives of the Trilateral Mechanism (UN, African Union and IGAD), the army, the Rapid Reaction Force (RRF), political parties, armed movements, as well as retired officers and specialists in various fields. In total, more than 200 people take part in the event.

A week earlier, it became known that the Sudanese Armed Forces formed three committees to hold a seminar on security measures and military reform. Colonel-General Abbas Hassan al-Daruti was appointed head.

Recently, the head of the Transitional Sovereign Council of Sudan, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, said that work on the transfer of power to civilians continues. He also noted the inadmissibility of establishing authoritarian rule in the country.
