JUBA: Sudanese leaders and rebel commanders agreed Monday on a historic peace deal, a crucial first step toward ending 17 years of conflict, an AFP correspondent said.
Leaders of the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF), an umbrella organization of rebel groups from the western region of Darfur and the southern states of South Kordofan and Blue Nile, raised their fists in celebration after inking the agreement.
The deal was “initialled” and not signed, as a way to leave the door open for two key holdout rebel groups to join in a “final” agreement, officials said.
