SUDANESE peace talks concluded in Egypt yesterday as the parties sought to bring an end to the political deadlock in the country and bring about a transition to civilian rule.
Details of the agreement reached between Sudan’s Freedom & Change forces and the Sudanese Revolutionary Front were not known, but it was announced that a new constitutional document was to be signed later this month.
A statement from Egypt’s Foreign Ministry said that the two-day meeting had been held with “the purpose of achieving peace in Sudan; as a major issue of concern to all brothers in Sudan and in support of the constitutional document to be signed on the 17th of this month.”
“Participants in the meeting exchanged views and agreed to present what was reached to the leadership of the forces of Freedom & Change in Khartoum,” the statement added.
Sudan has been in political deadlock since April, when a military coup ousted authoritarian president Omar al-Bashir.
A “transitional” military council took control but has refused to relinquish power despite mass protests demanding civilian rule.
