Peace on Sight as Sudan Govt. Signs Peace Agreement with Rebel Groups
There may be end in sight for the lingering war in Dafur, South Kordofan and Blue Nile as the Sudan’s transitional government and several major rebel groups have signed a peace agreement.
This peace deal is structured to open humanitarian aid routes into areas cut off by insurgency conflicts for the past eight years.
“The agreement, signed in South Sudan, includes rebel groups from Darfur, the Nuba Mountains and the Blue Nile region”, the BBC said.
Last week, the Khartoum government declared permanent ceasefires in all three areas.
The transitional government – which came to power in August four months after President Omar al-Bashir was ousted by the military – has vowed to reunite the country.
