ANKARA, Sept. 13 (Xinhua) -- Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan met visiting Chairman of Sudan's transitional Sovereign Council Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan here in the Turkish capital on Wednesday, the state-run TRT broadcaster reported.

Al-Burhan, also the general commander of the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF), is accompanied by acting Foreign Minister Ali Al-Sadiq, Director of the General Intelligence Service Ahmed Ibrahim Mufadel, and Director General of Defense Industries System Mirghani Idris Suleiman, according to a statement from Sudan's Sovereign Council.

The Turkish side has yet to issue any statement on the two leaders' meeting, which came amid prolonged conflict between the SAF and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) in the African country.

The clashes in Khartoum and other areas since April 15 resulted in over 3,000 deaths and more than 6,000 injuries, according to the Sudanese Health Ministry.

More than 3 million people have been forced into displacement, inside and outside the country, since the conflict broke out in Sudan, according to UN estimates. Enditem
