April 15, 2020 (KHARTOUM) - The holdout Sudan Liberation Movement led by Abdel Wahid al-Nur (SLM-AW) said that the transitional government does not have a vision for peace, in a reaction to the government’s announcement of a peace conference.

On Sunday, the government announced that a national peace conference would be held inside the country in June, with the participation of all Sudanese parties.

“I do not think that Sudan’s ruling partners have a vision for peace. Their views are similar to the initiatives of the ousted al-Bashir’s regime. They aim at reaching a partial settlement and sharing power, instead of addressing the root causes of the crisis, said Mohamed Abdel-Rahman al-Nayer, in statements to Sudan Tribune on Wednesday.

"Peace should be comprehensive for all components of Sudan, without limiting it to government and opposition," he further said.

The holdout group refused to join the Juba process for peace and Sudan and declared that it would launch an initiative for a comprehensive conference for peace inside Sudan and the return of its exiled leader to the country.

But, the group recently said the coronavirus pandemic forced them to postponement the initiative for the time being.

The spokesman suspected that the transitional government intends to steal the Movement’s initiative for a national peace conference, with the aim of using it to maintain the current situation.

"This kind of thinking will not achieve peace. If the government is serious about achieving sustainable peace that addresses the root causes of the political crises, let them support the movement’s initiative," he said.

Asked whether it is too early to speak about the failure of the government forthcoming conference, he said they have nothing to offer.

"We learnt this from the fruit of their deeds. This initiative is intended to circumvent the requirements of true peace".

    What does this guy know about peace? Isn’t this the only guy that refused to participate in the peace process and instead demanded to have some random plebiscite?

    Is this not the guy that caused the split of the SLA by disappearing into some luxury apartment in France & sometimes Uganda?

    “I do not think that Sudan’s ruling partners have a vision for peace.”

    "Asked whether it is too early to speak about the failure of the government forthcoming conference, he said they have nothing to offer."

    "We learnt this from the fruit of their deeds."

      You would think this is the guy that appoints who will receive the nobel peace prize with the way he speaks lol

    "Their views are similar to the initiatives of the ousted al-Bashir’s regime. They aim at reaching a partial settlement and sharing power, instead of addressing the root causes of the crisis”

    "Peace should be comprehensive for all components of Sudan, without limiting it to government and opposition”

      Ideally, I absolutely agree with second part.... but its not realistic.
      You’ll be lucky if you find any 2 groups of people that agree on anything in Sudan. This is true especially in rebel groups in Sudan.
      Rebel groups in Sudan develop internal issues with themselves and split into different rebel groups. This cycle repeats in Sudan, where now we have a 2 man rebel group with website.

        As they split, so do their demands. This makes establishing a collective peace deal impossible.
        You would think division among the rebel groups would make them weak but in Sudan things don’t make sense... Division gives them superpowers.
        Even Sun Tzu would be confused what to do with our rebels.d

    "If the government is serious about achieving sustainable peace that addresses the root causes of the political crises, let them support the movement’s initiative,"

      Combining the two initiatives would be logical rather than criticizing the gov initiative.
      Has he even considered discussing this with the gov?

      This guy is acting like a kid upset that someone else stole his idea and now he doesn’t get credit.

      • 16 April 21:06, by Fathi

        Let this guy write a 10 page about the root causes of crises, the solution, how to get all our rebel groups to agree to that solution, what happens if they don’t agree, and then submit it to sudantribune first before complaining about the governments peace conference
