The opposition reveals the withdrawal of the state file from the agenda of negotiations in Khartoum
The deputy chairman of the opposition People’s Movement Information Committee, Peter Manawa Gatkoth, on Sunday withdrew the mandate file from the agenda of the ongoing peace talks, expressing dissatisfaction with the move, which he said could hamper the peace process.
The third round of peace talks was resumed in the Sudanese capital Khartoum on Saturday to discuss outstanding issues in the signed agreement.
“The third round of peace talks started on Saturday, and during the discussion of the agenda, the participating parties were surprised to withdraw the mandate file that was expected to be discussed today according to the mediation table,” Manawah said.
Noting that postponing talk or debate on the issue of borders and the limits may hamper the progress made by the parties in the negotiations. “Even mediation did not notify us when the question of mandates will be discussed,” he said.
Gatkoth said that the warring parties have begun to debate the powers of the presidential institution and the five ministries and have made progress in them and are expected to resolve them.
