He stressed that the armed forces have no affiliation except to the army and do not know tribalism, but rather rely on and advocate nationalism, reassuring the Sudanese people on the army’s move forward to achieve national unity.

Al-Burhan ha sent a message in his address to the youth of the revolution, saying: “We do not want unilateral solutions and, we tell the youth we are with you, for a civil rule guarded by the armed forces.”

Al-Burhan stressed that the Army has started the reform process since the Revolution and it is able to continue the process to develop and modernize it in a satisfactory manner, and will not allow any party to interfere in its affairs or work to dismantle it.

He also renewed his warnings to all political forces, including Islamists, Communists, Baathists and others, against the consequences of trying to harm the Armed Forces and inciting their members, and anyone who tries to do so will be considered by the Armed Forces as an enemy.

 In the same context, His Excellency denied existence of any bilateral settlement with a specific party, and noted that there is actually a paper submitted and the military leadership expressed its observations on it in a manner that preserves the dignity, independence and unity of the Armed Forces and ensures the unity of the country.

Al-Burhan called on the political forces to sit down to this vision that was presented so that amendments and additions could be made to it in a way that would enable the country to move forward and stop the damage that affected many facilities in the country during the past years, and lead to a civilian government guarded by the Armed Forces instead of wasting time in assembling many initiatives made over in the past period.
