The Sudanese Transitional Military Council (TMC)’s head, Abdel Fattah Abdelrahman Burhan, left Sudan for a one-day official visit to Abu Dhabi on Sunday.
According to the UAE WAM news outlet, Al Nahyan met with the TMC head on Sunday and affirmed his country's commitment to stand with Sudan in its efforts to realize national reconciliation.
Al Nahyan recommended that Sudan focus on dialogue as an effective measure to secure a peaceful political transition and unity for the Sudanese people.
However, the protests have continued with the demonstrators demanding that the military hand power to a new civilian government. On 15 May, the TMC and the opposition reached an agreement on a three-year transitional period in the country.
On Friday, the opposition Forces for the Declaration of Freedom and Change announced that further talks on the makeup of a future sovereign council for governing the country "were not suspended but stopped".
The opposition also said that it wanted to establish a parliamentary republic in the country with expanded powers of the government and parliament for a transitional period.
