Mohamed El Taayshi, Member of Sudan’s Sovereign Council and the spokesperson for the government delegation for the peace talks, confirmed that a new round of peace negotiations with rebel movements will be started on Tuesday. After a long meeting with Sudan’s Supreme Peace Council, El Taayshi confirmed that a final peace agreement will be reached within February.

 

In a press statement on Monday, El Taayshi affirmed the completion of consultations between the transitional government, their partners in Force of Freedom and Change, and civil society organisations on the agenda of negotiations with the rebel movements.

 

El Taayishi confirmed that both the transitional government and its allies in FFC agreed on the negotiating agenda for the upcoming round of peace talks in Juba. This came right after a meeting of Sudan’s Supreme Peace Council that chaired by the Chairman of Sudan’s Sovereign Council, Lt Gen Abdelfattah El Burhan on Sunday.

“A comprehensive peace agreement will be signed within February because the meeting has clarified all the issues of the previous disagreement between the negotiating parties, especially issues related to the governing system and transitional justice,” he concluded.

 

On 26 of January, Radio Dabanga reported that Sudan’s transitional government and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement faction under the leadership of Malik Agar (SPLM-N Agar) have signed a framework peace agreement in Juba. Both parties expressed their willingness to reach a comprehensive peace agreement before mid-February.
