The African Union and the United Nations said they are supporting a civilian-led transitional government in Sudan following last month’s overthrow of President Omar al-Bashir.

But he said military members could be part of a civilian government.
The AU initially gave the military 15 days to hand over power but extended the deadline to 60 days. Mahamat said talks are under way.The UN-AU communique welcomes and supports “AU-led efforts to facilitate a consensual and civilian-led transition, in close coordination with the UN”.
