White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan urged Sudan on Monday to allow "unhindered" humanitarian access to crisis-hit areas as the crisis continues to shake that country, APA reports citing Teletrader.

Speaking to reporters at a press conference, Sullivan underscored that Washington condemns violence in Sudan and calls on both sides to agree to a ceasefire and negotiations. He added that the United States sent several teams to facilitate humanitarian help and the exit of its citizens from the conflict-stricken country. Sullivan confirmed all of the diplomatic personnel has been extracted from Khartoum and that the administration is now working toward evacuating all US citizens that wish to leave.

Additionally, Sullivan noted that the operations of the US embassy in Khartoum are only temporarily suspended until the situation calms.
