Washington:

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken spoke Thursday with Sudan's army chief, calling for the "immediate restoration of the civilian-led government" after a military coup in the country last month.

"The Secretary urged General Burhan to immediately release all political figures detained since October 25 and return to a dialogue that returns Prime Minister Hamdok to office and restores civilian-led governance in Sudan," State Department spokesman Ned Price said in a statement.
