US threatens to cut aid to Sudan

The US on Monday warned it could cut off more aid to Sudan’s transitional project after the military took over the government and detained Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok.

Jeffrey Feltman, the US special envoy for the Horn of Africa, warned the move by the military put at risk the support that Washington had channelled to the country, which until December last year was under US sanctions.

“The US is deeply alarmed by reports of a military take-over of the transitional government. This would contravene the Constitutional Declaration and the democratic aspirations of the Sudanese people and is utterly unacceptable,” Feltman said.

“As we have said repeatedly, any changes to the transitional government by force puts at risk US assistance.”
Sudan was on Monday morning gripped with uncertainty after military agents detained Hamdok at his home.
