Khartoum: Altaghyeer


On Saturday, a delegation from the Nuba Mountains Forces Alliance (NFA) left for the capital of South Sudan, Juba, to meet with the SPLM-North delegation, led by Abdulaziz al-Hilu, to support and advocate for peace and clarify the alliance’s vision for peace.


According to the coalition’s statement issued Saturday, the meeting comes in support for a comprehensive, just and sustainable peace.


In addition to supporting and advocating for peace issues in Sudan in general and supporting the cause of the people of the Nuba Mountains in particular.

Also, to stress the need for civil society in the Nuba Mountains to participate as observers in the peace process and the talks to be held in the coming period.

As well as affirming and supporting a comprehensive, just and sustainable peace proposal that radically addresses the roots of the Sudanese problem and issues of war and peace

The delegation’s visit coincides with the presence of SLM leader Abdulwahid Mohamed Nur in the capital Juba.

Al-Hilu and Nur are the leaders of the last two armed movements that have not concluded an agreement with the Transitional Government of the Sudan.


The two leaders are sticking to their previous positions despite nearly two years since the overthrow of ousted regime Omar al-Bashir on April 11, 2019.

While Al-Hilu insists on establishing secularism as a system of rule of Sudan or self-determination for the Nuba Mountains region.

Nur adopts an Inter-Sudanese Dialogue that is different from the approaches through which previous peace agreements were adopted.


However, the two parties agree to reject the frameworks set by the Juba Negotiating Platform, under which most leaders of the former armed movements became parties to the governing authority in Khartoum.


The NFA’s statement stated that supporting the position demanding a secular democratic state based on the separation of religion from state institutions, was one of the objectives of the delegation’s visit.


Besides emphasizing a supra-constitutional principles, immune from abolition or amendment as fundamental and necessary principles.
