PARIS, June 14 — The Group of Seven leaders urged external actors to stop fuelling the conflict in Sudan where the situation “was constantly deteriorating with increased civilian casualties”, according to a draft communique.

“We urge external actors to refrain from fuelling the conflict, and we encourage all Sudanese actors to engage in a national dialogue inclusive of the composite Sudanese civil society and aimed at re-establishing civilian and representative institutions to meet the democratic aspirations of the Sudanese people,” the G7 said in a draft statement seen by Reuters. — Reuters
