Foreign Minister Pekka Haavisto  on Tuesday discussed the situation in Sudan with Arab League (AL) Secretary General Ahmed Aboul-Gheit, reported news agency Xinhua.

During the meeting in Cairo, Haavisto was briefed about the efforts by the AL to support Sudan during the current transitional phase, according to a press release issued by the AL.

The two sides also discussed regional and international support for Sudan to enable the Arab country to confront the current challenges and end the transitional phase in a way that meets the aspirations of the Sudanese people.

Sudan has been suffering political instability since the military ouster and detention of former President Omar al-Bashir in April after four months of street protests.

The Sudanese Transitional Military Council has been tasked with running affairs in Sudan after the ouster of al-Bashir.
