The United Arab Emirates congratulated Sudan on Friday after its military council and opposition reached a power-sharing deal.
“We hope that the next phase will witness the foundation of a constitutional system that will strengthen the role of institutions with broad national and popular support,” UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash said in a Twitter post.
He said the UAE would stand with Khartoum in “good times and bad times.”
Sudan’s ruling generals and protest leaders reached an agreement on the disputed issue of a new governing body, in a breakthrough power-sharing accord aimed at ending the country’s months-long political crisis.
“The two sides agreed on establishing a sovereign council with a rotating military and civilian (presidency) for a period of three years or little more,” African Union mediator Mohamed El Hacen Lebatt told reporters.
