US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Monday that he had appointed a special envoy for Sudan.

Blinken said the special envoy, Tom Perriello, would coordinate the US policy on Sudan and “advance our efforts to end the hostilities, secure unhindered humanitarian access, and support the Sudanese people as they seek to fulfill their aspirations for freedom, peace, and justice.”

Perriello will also work to “empower” Sudan’s civilian leaders and drive US engagement with partners in Africa, the Middle East, and the international community to forge a united approach to “stop this senseless conflict, prevent further atrocities, and promote accountability for crimes already committed.”

Perriello previously served as the special envoy for the Great Lakes and the Democratic Republic of Congo and as the special representative for the second Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review.
