Troika asks Sudan’s rebel leader Abdul Wahid to join peace process

Juba, South Sudan,

June 09, 2021 – The Troika community has called on the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement leader Abdul Wahid al-Nur to join the ongoing peace negotiations between the transitional government and armed opposition groups to usher in a comprehensive agreement.

In a statement seen by Nymiledpedia, the governments of the United Kingdom, Norway, and the United States say parties to the agreement must implement both phases and treat them simultaneously as important.

“The Troika welcomes the agreement on a Declaration of Principles between the Government of Sudan and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North/Abdelaziz al-Hilu and encourages both sides to reach agreement on ending their conflict so all Sudanese can play a part in the transitional process.

“We also continue to make our call for the Sudan Liberation Movement/Abdulwahid al-Nur to begin talks as part of achieving a comprehensive peace involving all major armed movements. The Government of Sudan has described the Juba Peace Agreement as ‘Phase One’ of the peace process and the negotiations with al-Hilu and al-Nur as ‘Phase Two’.

“The Troika consider the implementation of the Juba Peace Agreement and the simultaneous ‘Phase Two’ negotiations to be of equal importance and we believe the success of Sudan’s transitional period rests on finding unity in diversity based on equal rights and building sustainable development through inclusive policies,” the statement says in part.

In October 2020, after the signing of the Declaration of Principles in South Sudanese capital Juba, Wahid said the agreement ‘deepens crisis’.

“We want to hold dialogue with all segments of Sudanese society to identify the roots of the decades-long crisis.

“Negotiations between the government and opposition always end with the division of power. This is at the heart of Sudan’s crisis and not a solution to it,” Abdul Wahid was quoted by Asharq Al-Awsat to have said.
