Leaders of East Africa meet on IGAD summit

The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) announced that it will hold an extraordinary summit on December 9 to evaluate the developments in the region.

In the written statement made by IGAD, it was stated that the 41st Extraordinary Government and Heads of State Summit will be held in Djibouti on December 9.

It is expected that a new initiative for peace will be launched at the summit, which was decided to be held after the efforts in Saudi Arabia to end the civil war in Sudan failed.

The union, which consists of 8 countries in East Africa, has been trying to end the conflicts since the beginning of the war.

In Sudan, where the civil war has entered its 8th month, the Jeddah peace talks between the army and the Rapid Support Forces (HDK) were suspended indefinitely at the beginning of the week.

In Sudan, the parties continue the conflict with heavy weapons in 9 states in the west and southwest of the country, as well as in the capital Khartoum.

International ceasefire and negotiation attempts so far have failed due to mutual accusations of violations by the parties and their inability to agree on the terms put forward.
The parties met in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on November 7, within the scope of peace negotiations.
