The Justice and Equality Movement (JEM), the Sudan Liberation Movement faction under the leadership of Minni Minawi (SLM-MM), the SLM-Transitional Council, and the Sudan Liberation Forces Alliance have agreed to enter into peace negotiations with a joint negotiating delegation and one negotiating position.

The four Darfuri armed movements met with the South Sudanese President Salva Kiir in Juba last week.

Two years ago the Sudan Liberation Forces Alliance claimed they were not bound by any ceasefire.

The statement points out the need to coordinate efforts in the field of humanitarian work and displaced persons and refugees. It also stresses that all the armed movements and all those who believe in change in Sudan should unite.

The four movements intend to formulate a joint political position on all national issues. They reject a technocratic government “under the pretext of competence”, quotas for representation in the government, and “fake representation” of those living in the remote and marginalised areas of the country.
