The two official expressed their concern over the ongoing violence in Sudan, where clashes between rival military factions have killed hundreds of people and threatened the country’s fragile transition to democracy. They agreed to work together to mediate a permanent ceasefire and to host the warring parties for talks in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, in order to create an environment for dialogue and de-escalation.

They also stressed the importance of protecting civilians and foreign nationals in Sudan, where thousands of people have been injured and displaced since the outbreak of fighting on April 17.

The phone call also covered various aspects of the strategic partnership between the US and Saudi Arabia, which has faced some challenges under the Biden administration. However, Blinken reaffirmed the US commitment to the defense of Saudi Arabia and its security interests in the region.

The two officials also reviewed their efforts to enhance bilateral cooperation in various fields.

Additionally, they discussed their peace efforts in the Middle East and the world.
