Moussa Faki, according to official news agency will meet with the head of the military transitional council Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and leaders of political parties.

In a meeting with the representatives of international community and peace missions in Khartoum on Thursday 18 April, the military council said that the change that took place in the country came to support popular demands, not a military coup.

Also, they said they want to achieve peace in Sudan, pointing out that they have started contacts with non-signatory armed groups movements to promote peace and stability.

However, the Freedom and Change forces say they want an immediate power handover and plan to announce Sunday a list of a 17 member cabinet to lead the country for 4 years.

The military council say they want to stay for two years.
