ADDIS ABABA, May 15 (Xinhua) -- Ethiopian Minister of Foreign Affairs Gedu Andargachew on Wednesday reiterated the Ethiopian government's support to the ongoing negotiations among Sudanese stakeholders.

Andargachew vowed the country's commitment to support Sudan during his meeting with Nadia Mohammed Kheir, Charge d'affaires of the Sudanese Embassy in Ethiopia, the Ethiopian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement on Wednesday.

The Ethiopian foreign minister's meeting with Kheir also came after Sudan's Transitional Military Council announced Wednesday that it has agreed with the major opposition forces on the rule structures and a three-year power transition period.

Meanwhile, Chairperson of the African Union (AU) Commission Moussa Faki Mahamat also on Wednesday commended the latest accord among Sudanese stakeholders for a political transition in Sudan.

The AU Chairperson "extends his warm congratulations to the national stakeholders for their high level of responsibility to complete the negotiation cycle in a reasonable time in order to adequately address the legitimate concerns of the Sudanese people," an AU statement issued on Wednesday said.
