Juba, South Sudan,
June 10th, 2021 – The United Kingdom, Norway, and United States have endorsed the Sudanese peace agreement and appreciated the progress made so far by parties.
This comes after the Troika countries signed on Wednesday the Sudanese peace in Juba as witnesses in a signal of political support to the deal.
In a statement extended to Nyamilepedia, the Troika acknowledged and applauded the significant role played by the parties and the Sudan Transitional Government in bringing changes to the Sudanese people.
“We take this opportunity to commend the parties to the Agreement for the progress that has been made since October 2020, including the expansion of government to include wider representation”, Troika said.
“We also commend the progress made by Prime Minister Hamdok and the transitional government in delivering vital reforms that are essential for the transition to democracy to succeed, including economic and legal reforms,” the statement continues.
“We do, however, recognize that efforts to deliver key provisions of the Agreement must be increased, including the formation of the joint forces and the establishment of the ceasefire monitoring mechanism to help protect civilians in Darfur from conflict and violence,” they added.
Troika countries expressed their concerns also over the situation of people in Darfur, South Kordofan, and the Blue Nile, regions they say, have people most affected by war adding that political will is needed for parties to expedite the implementation process so that sustainable and inclusive system that reflects equal rights is achieved.
“We urge immediate steps to fully implement and adhere to the agreed timelines set forth in the transitional Constitutional Document and the Juba Peace Agreement, including the formation of key institutions such as the Transitional Legislative Council,” Troika added in the statement.
Troika called on holdout groups to take part in the agreement especially the Sudan Liberation Movement led by Abdel Wahid Mohammed Nur in order to avoid any instability in the country.
The Sudan peace deal was signed in the South Sudanese capital Juba in October 2020 under the auspices of President Salva Kiir Mayardit. Last week, the Sudan Transitional Government met with SPLM-N of al-Hilu in Juba and accepted his demands.
