Sudan government and armed forces sign final peace agreement

Nairobi, October 3, Juba news: Sudan’s transitional government and armed forces signed a final peace agreement in Juba, the capital of South Sudan, on October 3 to end the 17 year old state of hostility. The agreement was signed by Burhan, chairman of the Sudan sovereignty Council, on behalf of the transitional government of Sudan, and several armed leaders of the armed alliance, the Sudan revolutionary front, signed the agreement. The agreement covers the distribution of power and wealth, security, justice and helping displaced people return home. President Kiir of South Sudan, President Deby of Chad, President Sahel Walker Zod of Ethiopia, and representatives of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and the United States attended the signing ceremony of the agreement. The interim government of Sudan and the “revolutionary front of Sudan” signed a preliminary peace agreement. This is seen as an important step towards the restoration of peace in the conflict zone in the Sudan. Armed groups in Darfur have been fighting against the government of Sudan since 2003. Armed rebellion began in southern Kordofan and Blue Nile states in 2011, and the “Sudan revolutionary front” was formed that year. The United Nations Security Council authorized the deployment of the United Nations and African Union mission in Darfur in 2007. In April 2019, the government led by then President Omar Al Bashir of Sudan was overthrown by the military. The transitional government of Sudan was established a few months later and began peace talks with armed groups in Darfur and other regions. Since the second half of 2019, the South Sudan government has mediated and presided over the Sudan government and the “Sudan revolutionary front”
