The Vice President of Sudan's Sovereign Council and Commander of the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces, Lt Gen Mohamed Hamdan ‘Hemeti’, described the peace agreement signed with the armed movements on Monday as “the most important achievement of the glorious December revolution”.

The broad support and welcome the agreement enjoyed internationally and regionally is a great motivation for the Sudanese government, Hemeti said in a press conference at Khartoum International Airport after his return from Juba yesterday.

He explained that the government delegation remained in the South Sudanese capital Juba stayed for three days after the signing of the peace agreement to arrange the implementation timetables with the movements to bring the peace agreement to reality.

Hemeti called on the rebel movements that did not join the agreement to join the peace process and complete the picture to achieve comprehensive peace. In the country.

SPLM-N-Third Front

The Sudanese government and the Sudan People's Liberation Movement-North-Third Front yesterday signed an agreement on security arrangements in Juba.

Dhieu Mathok, spokesman for the South Sudanese mediation team, said in a statement after the signing yesterday that the rebel group was present in Juba since the beginning of the negotiation process in September last year. They did not have the opportunity however to participate in the peace negotiations, as the participation of the parties at the Juba negotiations platform was agreed on earlier.

The two parties agreed on the necessity to settle the security arrangement clause with the Popular Movement-Third Front, which Mathok said is very large and spread over the border strip between Sudan and South Sudan.

Defence Minister Maj Gen Yasin Ibrahim said that the Sudan Armed Forces is able to fully absorb them, in particular in West Kordofan, and East and South Darfur.
