The government delegation to the peace negotiations headed by the First Deputy Chairman of the Sovereign Council, Lieutenant-General Mohamed Hamdan Diqlo and the delegation of the Revolutionary Front, held this evening a discussion session at the Peace Rotana Hotel in Khartoum, in the presence of the mediation team from the Republic of South Sudan, dealing with outstanding issues in which the negotiating parties did not reach an agreement.
A member of the southern mediation team, Dr. Du Matouk, said in a press statement that today’s session discussed the proposals presented by the government party yesterday’s session, adding that the parties had discussed a number of outstanding points in the previous sessions and that there was a great agreement between them.
It is clear to you that the mediation will present draft proposals on issues that have not been agreed upon in tomorrow’s session.
A member of the southern mediation team thanked the mediation parties to the Sudanese talks for cooperation and the good spirit that prevailed in the talks. He also thanked the Sudanese political forces, especially the freedom and change forces, the political incubator of the transitional government for their participation in the dialogue and enriching the discussion in reaching the results that the negotiations have reached now.
Mutouk pointed out that Sudan needs peace now, not tomorrow, stressing the seriousness of mediation and the state of South Sudan, led by Lieutenant-General Salva Kiir Mayardit, to bring the negotiations to a peace agreement.
