Peace negotiations between the Sudanese government and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North faction under the leadership of Malik Agar (SPLM-N Agar) began on Sunday by means of video conferencing.

The negotiating delegations making use of offices of the United Nations in Khartoum and Juba for this purpose. The two parties agreed to negotiate in this way every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday, four hours a day.

The High Peace Council in Khartoum wants to resume negotiations with the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF) rebel alliance via video conferencing in order to finalise the remaining negotiating obstacles quickly. It also assigned a group to prepare proposals to break the deadlock in the negotiations with the SPLM-N faction led by Abdelaziz El Hilu. SPLM-N El Hilu is not part of the SRF alliance.

Aldelaziz El Hilu was deputy chairman of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North, led by Malik Agar, when he resigned in March 2017, eventually forming his own SPLM-N faction. The two factions fought heavy battles after that.
