The Sudanese Forces of Freedom and Change alliance yesterday denied media reports claiming members of the alliance had met with Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok, Anadolu reported.

"We in the Central Council of the Forces of Freedom and Change deny news circulated by the prime minister's office and the Sudanese News Agency of a meeting held between the council's leadership and the prime minister [on Tuesday evening], as we did not name any representative on our behalf for any meeting with Hamdok previously during his house arrest, or even on Tuesday," the Central Council of the alliance said in a statement.

The statement reiterated the Central Council's position which rejects negotiations and partnerships with the putschists, in reference to the country's army leaders.

Earlier on Sunday, Hamdok and Army Chief, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, signed a political agreement which reinstated Hamdok as prime minister to form a government for a transitional period.
