The Secretary of the U.S. State Department, Antony Blinken announced that a three-day cease-fire agreement was reached between the Sudanese Armed Forces and the Rapid Support Forces starting midnight Monday. The civil war between the two military factions failed several times to reach a cease-fire agreement previously, and 36 nationalities had been at risk in the meantime.

Blinken said “To support a durable end to the fighting, the United States will coordinate with regional and international partners, and Sudanese civilian stakeholders to assist in the creation of a committee to oversee the negotiation, conclusion, and implementation of a permanent cessation of hostilities and humanitarian arrangements in Sudan,” in a statement on Monday.

Many neighboring countries have been involved in this civil war and the capital of Sudan, Khartoum is deserted and the most vulnerable city in this power struggle. The WHO (World Health Organization) said that more than 400 people had been killed.

President Biden ordered the evacuation of all American personnel from the embassy in Khartoum on Saturday.

South Korea evacuated its 25 nationals from Sudan, and Saudi Arabia said Monday that it had evacuated 357 people from more than two dozen counties from Sudan, according to NBC News. Since April 15, Sudan’s conflict has overshadowed Ukraine’s ongoing war against Russia. There are allegations that Sudan has been sending Russia gold in exchange for weapons and soldiers, which has continued to heighten the conflict rather than calm it.
