Darfur’s Governor welcomes the suspension of the Juba peace pact in Sudan, urges Kiir to intervene.
President Salva Kiir Mayardit of the Republic of South Sudan has been urged to involve himself in resolving the ongoing political crisis in Sudan by the Governor of the Sudanese Darfur region, Minni Arko Minawi.
SLM leader Minawi said, upon his arrival in Juba, South Sudan on Thursday, that they support the decision to halt the implementation of the Juba Peace Agreement until the political crisis is resolved.
Sudanese political parties requested Juba play a central role in uniting the Sudanese political parties under President Kiir in a proposal submitted to the president.
According to him, the Juba Peace Agreement cannot be implemented due to the current political crisis in the country.
President Salva Kiir was invited because we are looking for a solution through dialogue since our neighbors can assist and intervene when we are in need.”
Juba Peace Agreement was signed in August 2020 by the Sudanese government and the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF) in the capital of South Sudan, Juba, to end years of conflict in Darfur, South Kordofan, and the Blue Nile.
On Oct. 25, 2021, General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan declared a state of emergency, dissolving the Sovereign Council and the government in Sudan.
As a result, Khartoum and other cities in Sudan have witnessed protests demanding a return to civilian rule. The situation has brought to a halt the implementation of the Juba Peace Agreement.
