Sudan: Sudanese government and 4 armed groups sign a framework agreement for peace in Darfur
Sudanese government and Sudanese Revolutionary Front (Darfur Track) have signed a framework agreement on the issues they will discuss in the direct talks for peace in Darfur.
The ongoing discussions for peace in Darfur come after the signing on 11 September of confidence-building measures including the cessation of hostilities and humanitarian access.
The same deal was renewed on 14 December as the parties gave themselves further time to achieve a peace agreement and set 14 February for the signing of a final peace agreement.
The framework agreement was signed by the head of the government negotiating team Shams al-Din Kabbashi, the representatives of the four groups from Darfur and the South Sudanese chief mediator Tut Gatluak.
