Today, Thursday, the official negotiation round began between the transitional government in Sudan and the SPLM-N led by Abdelaziz al-Hilu.
The government delegation was headed by the TSC member Shams al Din Kabbashi, while al-Hilu headed the SPLM-N’s delegation.
The opening session of negotiations between the Sudanese government and al-Hilu started yesterday in Juba, South Sudan, amid wide regional presence.
Yesterday’s session was addressed by the President of the Republic of South Sudan, Salva Kiir Mayardit, President of the TSC Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, and PM, Abdullah Hamdok.
The session was also addressed by the head of the SPLM-N Abdelaziz Al-Hilu and the head of the mediation team, Tut Qalwak.
The two parties expressed their readiness to complete the peace process in Sudan.
In the same vein, the Revolutionary Front confirmed that the Sudanese government’s negotiation position with the SPLM should always use the constitutional document and the Juba Peace Agreement as reference points.
The Front stressed that the agreement with the SPLM-N must be harmonized according to the aforementioned documents.
The Revolutionary Front, which includes many armed factions, signed the Juba Peace Agreement with the transitional government last October.
