"We have decided to suspend the negotiation with the Transitional Military Council," Sudan's opposition Freedom and Change Alliance said in a statement during a press conference at the site of the protesters' sit-in before the army's general headquarter.

Sudan's main opposition alliance has suspeded their peace talks with the Transitional Military Council after the latter refused to hand over power to a civilian government.

"We have decided to suspend the negotiation with the Transitional Military Council," Sudan's opposition Freedom and Change Alliance said in a statement during a press conference at the site of the protesters' sit-in before the army's general headquarter.

However, the Chairman of Sudan's Transitional Military Council Abdel-Fattah Al-Burhan disagreed with the opposition, saying that their goal is to ultimately hand over the power to the people.

"The role of the council is complementary to revolution, and handing over the power to the people was a demand of the revolution," Al-Burhan said during an interview broadcasted by Sudan's official TV. "The Transitional Military Council has no ambitions in power, and we are keen to begin the transitional period as soon as possible."

Sudan's Transitional Military Council is tasked with running the country's affairs following the ouster of former President Omar al-Bashir regime.

Al-Bashir was ousted from power earlier this month after serving as President of Sudan for 30 years. 

Following the removal of Al-Bashir from power, the Transitional Military Council took over and promised to transfer power to the people.
