Sudan ceasefire is 'building block' but 'third party' required for lasting peace

There is reason to be optimistic that the latest ceasefire will hold in Sudan, according to Andreas Krieg, a senior lecturer at the School of Security Studies at King's College London. He says that this time around there is a clear framework in place for the ceasefire, which comes into effect this evening, with an international oversight committee to oversee it. However, he warns that if the truce holds, it is for humanitarian reasons only, and it does not provide as yet any concrete basis for longer-term peace talks. He spoke to us in Perspective.
