Hundreds of civilians have been killed since the fighting erupted last month

With ceasefire talks between Sudan’s army and the Rapid Support Forces reportedly making progress, the United Nations is urging countries with influence in Africa to help end the conflict.

“I take this opportunity to urge all states with influence in the region to encourage, by all possible means, the resolution of this crisis,” U.N.’s human rights chief Volker Turk said.

Turk added that both sides in the conflict had “trampled international humanitarian law.”

The U.N. Human Rights Council narrowly passed a Western-backed motion to increase monitoring of human rights abuses in Sudan.

No African country voted in favour of the initiative.

Ceasefire talks are taking place in the Saudi port of Jeddah and U.S. mediators said they were “cautiously optimistic.”

In public neither side has shown it is ready to offer concessions to end the fighting.

Sudan’s Forces of Freedom and Change – a political group leading a plan to transfer to civilian rule – said they welcomed the talks.
