Sudan: Sudanese government and Darfur rebel group Sudan Liberation Movement (Second Revolution) (SLM-SR) to sign peace deal next week
The Sudanese government and Darfur rebel Sudan Liberation Movement (Second Revolution) SLM-SR chaired by Abul Gasim Imam will sign a peace agreement in the Qatari capital, Doha next week, said peace office official.
Qatar brokered the Darfur peace negotiations which resulted in the signing of the Doha Document for Peace in Darfur (DDPD) by the Sudanese government and the Liberation and Justice Movement (LJM) in July 2011. However, the major rebel groups didn’t join the deal.
Chairman of Darfur peace follow-up office Magdi Khalaf Allah on Thursday disclosed that a peace deal will be signed next week between the Sudanese government and the SLM-SR.
According to Reuters, Khalaf Allah said the agreement with the SLM-SR would be annexed to the DDPD; expressing hope the coming period will witness important developments in Darfur’s peace process.
