Juba, 7th July 2018. The government and the armed opposition parties have reached a deal on security arrangements during talks in Khartoum as part of efforts to end war in the country.
Sudan News Agency or SUNA on Thursday evening quoted the Sudanese army spokesman Brigadier General Ahmed Khalifa Al-Shami saying the two sides had finalized an agreement on security.
He added that the government and the armed opposition parties have prepared a draft to be signed at an unspecified date in the presence of Sudanese President Omar Hassan Al-Bashir.
Brigadier General Al-Shami said the deal covered clearing population centres of armed forces, a time frame to unify and reorganized South Sudan’s military.
The deal is also on setting up a joint security committee, and deciding on areas where forces are to be based, he added.
Last month, President Kiir and Dr Riek Machar signed a framework agreement for a ceasefire.
