On Monday noon, the signing ceremony for the peace agreement began in the initials between the Sudanese government and the armed movements, in Juba, which hosted lengthy talks between the two sides that ultimately resulted in this step, which is expected to end years of tension.
The signing ceremony will be attended by the head of the Sudanese Sovereignty Council, Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan and Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok, who arrived earlier in the capital of South Sudan to participate in the celebration.
It is expected that the Sudanese parties will crown marathon rounds that have spanned more than a year, with the signing of a peace agreement in the initials on Monday, in the capital of South Sudan, Juba, which sponsors the negotiation process.
The peace negotiations that began in Juba since last September were punctuated by a state of push and pull, but the will of the parties made the agreement possible.
On Friday, the Sudanese transitional government and the armed movements signed the “Darfur Path”, on 7 protocols, except for the security arrangements that will be signed at a later time.
The protocols that were signed included “political, power, wealth, justice and accountability, compensation and reparation, nomads and shepherds, and land and hawakeer.”
The parties reached understandings on the division of power, security arrangements, compensation for war victims and other important issues.
Last September, the Sudanese parties signed the “Juba Declaration” document for pre-negotiation issues, including the ceasefire, humanitarian issues and compensation, but according to this extension, the parties seek to reach peace that ends this conflict.
The Sudanese are counting on signing a comprehensive peace agreement that ends decades of internal wars, which is one of the main demands of the December revolution that toppled the regime of ousted President Omar al-Bashir in April 2019.
