BAGHDAD, The US State Department announced that the United States strongly supports Sudan as a safe and democratic country, noting that the Sudanese should be allowed a peaceful transition to power before the end of the two years.
"Sudanese must determine their future and who leads them," State Department Spokesman Robert Paladino said in a press briefing. "The Sudanese people were clear when they demanded a political transition under a civilian leadership.
"They should be allowed to do so in less than two years from now," which is the period declared by the army as the period of transition, he added.
