“The Transitional Military Council and the Forces for Freedom and Change have today initialled a political agreement on the formation of the structures and institutions of governance in the transition period. This is a further positive step. The continued efforts of the African Union/Ethiopian mediation played an important role in this achievement.”
“It is important that both sides now continue their discussions on outstanding issues and promptly conclude a constitutional agreement as foreseen.
As soon as a civilian-led transitional government is in place, the EU stands ready to assist Sudan on its path towards peace and stability,” said the text of the European External Action Service statement of the spokes person.
