Sudanese American Medical NGO Applauds WH Statement Asserting U.S. Accountability in Sudan, Calls for Greater Humanitarian Response
Sudanese American Medical NGO Applauds WH Statement Asserting U.S. Accountability in Sudan, Calls for Greater Humanitarian Response The Sudanese American Physicians Association (SAPA) applauds National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan’s statement today asserting U.S. accountability for the ongoing violence in Sudan and emphasizing the need to put an end to the conflict.
According to the statement, which comes after weeks of failed efforts to broker a ceasefire between the SAF and the RSF, the U.S. will impose sanctions and visa restrictions against actors perpetuating the violence in Sudan.
SAPA released the following organizational statement in response to the statement today: “The White House statement on Sudan today reflects the growing U.S. commitment to ending the violence and bloodshed in Sudan. While the measures outlined in the statement are an important step to pressure and hold both sides of the conflict accountable, we urge the U.S. and the international community to deploy greater humanitarian aid to address the dire medical situation in Sudan.
Until we are able to put an end to this conflict, we must do all that we can to protect civilians in Sudan by ensuring safe passage of civilians when accessing medical care and moving to safer locations away from fighting, working to deliver humanitarian resources to Sudanese aid organizations already working on the ground, and continued diplomatic engagement from the United States, Europe and regional allies alongside Sudanese civil society.
We commend the U.S. for its ongoing work and commitment to addressing the crisis in Sudan, and we hope to see a more comprehensive international humanitarian response soon.”
