Sudan: People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-Nal-Hilu) led by Abdel Aziz al-Hilu extends unilateral ceasefire for 7 months
The Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North led by Abdel Aziz al-Hilu (SPLM-Nal-Hilu) extended for seven-month the unilateral cessation of hostilities as they prepare to resume peace talks with Khartoum.
This extension was decided “As a gesture of goodwill towards a peaceful resolution of the Sudanese conflict, and in order to give the ongoing peace talks an opportunity for success,” said al-Hilu in a statement extended to Sudan Tribune, on Wednesday.
The ceasefire shall come into force with effect from the first of July 2020 up to the end of January 2021, said the statement.
On 31 March, al-Hilu had extended the truce for three months until the end of June 2020.
Negotiations between the transitional government and the SPLM-N al-Hilu are stalled over the latter demand to discuss the secular state and self-determination within the peace process.
