Security Council Welcomes Security Agreement in Sudan's Conflict
The United Nations Security Council today welcomed security agreements reached between the Sudanese Government and the Sudan People's Liberation Movement/Army (SPLM/A) that would help settle the long conflict.
This one will no doubt work better than all the previous agreements...
The transitional military agreement, signed late last month, deals with the status of the two forces and arrangements for their integration. An internationally monitored ceasefire will come into effect from the date of a comprehensive peace agreement. It also forbids the use of the Government's and the former secessionist armies to maintain domestic law and order, except in certain emergencies.
