Sudan Govt. - SPLM-N rebel negotiation stalemate
The negotiations between the Government and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N) concerning a comprehensive cessation of hostilities and cease fire in the Two Areas (South Kordofan and Blue Nile) remain deadlocked.
The government insists on a comprehensive cease fire, while the SPLM-N seeks a partial cessation of hostilities in order to deliver aid to those affected.
The African Union mediators were expected to hold a crucial meeting between the delegations on Sunday, to reach an agreement on a compromise mediation draft. This was after the mediation approved the formation of a committee comprising two representatives from each party for the drafting of the final points.
The government named Jamal Adawi and Hamdi Hussein while the SPLM-N named Yasser Arman and Ahmed Abdul Rahman.
The first meeting between the Government delegation and the armed movements was scheduled to be held on Sunday evening in order to discuss the paper provided by the mediation to the parties after they provided their visions on it.
