Sudan`s transitional president, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, kept the joyous atmosphere around the peace agreement on Saturday and chanted in front of the crowd gathered in Juba, “Sudan is our country and we are all brothers.” He described the event with optimism. Kiir also thanked the international community for its “support and encouragement” in mediating the agreement and stressed that “our work is not done and we will not relax until we achieve our aspirations for a peaceful region.” He warned the outside world that Sudan “needs its help and help.” The peace process faces various challenges and pitfalls that we can overcome through concerted efforts and joint action. The Sudanese peace process consists of meetings, written agreements and actions to resolve the war in Darfur, the Sudanese conflict in South Kordofan and blue nile (both zones) and armed conflicts in central, northern and eastern Sudan.  Negotiations with SPLM-N (al-Hilu) in two areas had progressed until 21 January on six framework agreements after a two-week break, but disagreements remained over the SPLM-N (al-Hilu) request for a secular state in southern Kordofan and the Nuba Mountains and the Blue Nile self-determination.  The members of the Security Council urged those who have not yet joined the peace process with the Government of Sudan to do so immediately, constructively and without preconditions in order to conclude negotiations for a comprehensive peace agreement quickly, and urged all international actors to continue to encourage non-party parties to do so. In a statement upon his arrival, Hamdok said that “peace will open a wide horizon for development, progress and prosperity.” Peace agreement with Sudan signed in Juba on 3 October 2020. The leader of one of the factions that signed the joint peace agreement, Arko Minawi, stressed that it was a step in the right direction. A first round of negotiations took place in Juba in mid-September.   In the second round, in October 2019, agreements on the two-zone line between the government and the Sudan People`s Liberation Movement (al-Hilu) (SPLM-N (al-Hilu) were signed on 18 October 2019 and on the Darfur line between the government and the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF).
 The third round began in mid-December on the South Sudan line, the two-zone line with SPLM-N (Agar) and the Darfur Highway.  The troika also welcomes the recent dialogue between the Sudanese government and the People`s Liberation Movement of North Sudan/Abdelaziz al-Hilu and encourages both sides to engage in broader negotiations to end their conflict to allow all Sudanese to participate in the transition process. We call on the Sudanese Abdulwahid Al-Nur Liberation Movement and the Sudanese government to begin talks to achieve a comprehensive peace involving all major armed movements. The Sudanese peace agreement includes eight protocols and will restructure the country into eight regions and replace the country`s 18 provinces. The agreement also provides for the granting of wealth sharing and reparations to those who have been harmed by the long conflict and promises the return of refugees displaced by the fighting. The members of the Security Council congratulated Sudan and its people on this historic achievement, which is an important opportunity for a comprehensive and lasting peace in Sudan and an important step in the transition to a peaceful, stable, democratic and prosperous future for Sudan. The draft constitutional declaration of 4 August lists Article 7 to “achieve a just and comprehensive peace that will end the war by expanding to the roots of the Sudanese problem”. (1), the first position mentioned in its “transitional mandate,” and contains details in Chapter 15, Sections 67 and 58 of the document.   Article 67.b) states that a peace agreement should be concluded within six months of the signing of the draft constitutional declaration.
