African Union suspends Sudan

African Union suspends Sudan

The African Union (AU) on 06 June suspended Sudan until the establishment of civilian rule, intensifying global pressure on its new military leaders to stand down after the worst violence since Omar al-Bashir's fall in April.

The European Union endorsed the AU's decision, saying it "establishes clear criteria for the restoration of a peaceful and credible political process" in Sudan.

It also urged foreign powers to refrain from interference in Sudan's affairs and called for the release of Yasir Arman, the deputy head of the rebel Sudan People's Liberation Movement-North who was arrested at his residence in Khartoum on 05 June.


Sudan, officially the Republic of the Sudan, is a country in Northeast Africa.

It is bordered by Egypt to the north, the Red Sea to the northeast, Eritrea to the east, Ethiopia to the southeast, South Sudan to the south, the Central African Republic to the southwest, Chad to the west, and Libya to the northwest.
