Sudan Government Set to Sign Peace Deal With Rebel Group

Sudan to sign peace deal with rebel forces

The transitional government of Sudan is set to sign a peace deal with rebel movements to formally accommodate the fighters in the mainstream administration.

The ceremony which is due on Monday in Juba, the South Sudanese capital, means that the Sudanese Revolutionary Front (SRF) will take positions in the transitional government led by Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, as well as have its fighters gradually integrated in the military.

The SRF, which comprises armed groups that control the Darfur region, initiated on the agreement on Saturday, indicating that further negation on ending issues had been closed. The move came after long reviews conducted by the Sudanese government and the armed movements on the text of the agreement, particularly issues concerning the security guarantees and fate of its top leaders. 

With this agreement, the armed movements now has the right to merge their fighters with the Sudanese army, in addition to forming a joint force between them and the Sudanese army to protect civilians in Darfur. Also contained in the deal are security arrangements and timetables for the integration, training and deployment of forces. 

Sudanese Revolutionary Front (SRF), is an alliance of Sudanese factions that was formed in opposition to the government of then-president Omar al-Bashir in November 2011.
