The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has welcomed the new head of Sudan's Transitional Military Council, Lt Gen Abdelfattah Burhan, Emirates state news agency (WAM) reports.

Protesters at the Khartoum sit-in, meanwhile, said the council's reforms did not go far enough and called on the ruling body to hand over power immediately.

Earlier on Sunday, the military council met with some political parties in Khartoum and urged them to agree on an "independent figure" to lead Sudan as prime minister.

The military seized power from former president Omar al-Bashir in a coup on Thursday following months of mass protests across the country.

In his first televised address as de facto leader of the country on Saturday, he said that a civilian government would be established following consultations with opposition forces, promising that the transitional period would last for a maximum of two years.

"The steps taken by the army on Thursday, April 11, take the side of the people for the sake of freedom, peace and justice", the ministry said, echoing one of the protesters' slogans.
