In a letter seen by Sudan Tribune, the three groups told Mbeki that a lasting and suitable peace in Darfur requires to involve all the parties and actors in the region and not only some of them, il reference to the Justice and Equality Movement and the Sudan Liberation Movement - Minni Minnawi.

"We would like to confirm our willingness to meet you for the exchange of views, consultations and cooperation on the success of a comprehensive and sustainable peace process," said the three rebel leaders

"In this regard ware asking for a meeting as soon as possible to conduct further consultations," they further stressed.

Imam and Hajar were in Khartoum on 10 October with the Chadian president Idris Deby to attend the opening session of the national dialogue conference and left the country in his airplane.
