The members of the native administration in eastern Sudan have affirmed their participation in the eastern Sudan track in the Juba peace negotiations.

Lt Gen Mohamed Hamdan ‘Hemeti’, Deputy Chairman of the Sovereign Council and head of the delegation to negotiate with the armed struggle movements, said in a press statement after meeting with the representations of the native administration (Nazirs) yesterday, that they affirmed their participation of all the people of the east in the Juba negotiations, and will send delegates from among the Nazirs to join the delegation to negotiate the eastern track.

He pointed out that the East track has made great gains represented in the positive discrimination of the two eastern states within the affected states in the 2020 budget.

Hemeti announced that the meeting affirmed the East Agreement that was signed in Asmara in 2006 AD with a review of the East Reconstruction Fund through a house of expertise and reconfiguration to ensure the participation of all the people of the East.

He explained that the meeting decided to form a committee from the native administrations in Eastern Sudan and start the Red Sea state and provide aids to reveal the circumstances of the latest crime that took place in Port Sudan, which includes killing a person and burning him in Port Sudan.

Hemeti attributed the meeting to his previous commitments, explaining that he will come to Khartoum next week.

The governor of North Darfur, Major-General Malik El Tayeb Khojali, welcomed the forthcoming visit of a number of ambassadors of donor countries to the state scheduled for the tenth of this month in order to identify the state’s needs for developmental and service projects that support stability and peace building.

Khojali was speaking in Tuesday when he met in El Fasher with regional coordinator of the United Nations Development Programme, Christopher Laker.

He said the visit included ambassadors from Switzerland, Sweden and Canada.

The governor said that the state government has prepared an integrated matrix that contains all of the state’s developmental service needs.
