Peace will allow democratic transition in Sudan: Arman


SPLM-N Agar Deputy leader Yasir Arman speaks in Juba on 21 May 2020 (ST photo)July 10, 2020 (KHARTOUM) - Yasir Arman, deputy head of the SPLM-N led by Malik Agar, said that the expected peace agreement will create a new phase of transition that addresses the past mistakes and allow to achieve the democratic transformation in Sudan.

The Sudanese government and the armed groups involved in the peace talks in Juba including SPLM-N Agar are expected to strike a peace deal soon as they have finalized an agreement on the power-sharing this week. In the coming days, they will discuss the security arrangements the only remaining issue.

In statements to Sudan Tribune on Saturday, Arman who is also the SPLM-N Agar chief negotiator said that the peace process, which is at its final phase, will bring a new spirit into the Sudanese revolution and enable it to accomplish the tasks of democratization and Sudan’s full return into the international and regional arenas.

After the signing of the peace agreement, "A new stage of the transitional period will begin. The peace agreement between the SRF and the other parties should be used to establish a new transitional period that will allow addressing the errors committed during the first period."

Also, "we must go towards a broader role for large groups that participated in the revolution and did not participate in the government in a way to address the issues of the displaced and refugees, women and resistance issues. There is an opportunity to renew the vitality of the transitional period," he stressed.

Nowadays, Arman is in Khartoum, where he arrived two weeks ago, with the mediation team and other senior negotiators representing the armed groups, to break the deadlock in the negotiation process.

They reached an agreement with the government on all sticky issues in the power-sharing, except for the financing the peace implementation process in Darfur and the participation armed group in Darfur’s institutions as they demand 55% for the armed groups and 25% for the stakeholders leaving 20% for the government.

Upcoming Gulf support

He revealed that they had received promises from the Gulf countries to support the second phase of the transitional period and to support the implementation of the peace agreement particularly.

"We welcome these pledges. We seek to establish good relations with the Arab and African neighbourhood countries," he said.

Both the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates promised to provide joint support of three billion dollars to Sudan, but they stopped it after providing one billion to Sudan at the end of 2019

He said the expected peace agreement should create a suitable atmosphere in the country to attract armed movements that are not part of the peace process, pointing that a comprehensive peace throughout the country must be achieved during this year 2020.

Arman expressed hope that the forthcoming agreement will contribute to Sudan’s removal from the list of state sponsors of terrorism, stressing that this step is crucial for the stability of the transition period and the completion of its tasks.

    "the participation armed group in Darfur’s institutions as they demand 55% for the armed groups and 25% for the stakeholders leaving 20% for the government."

      In my opinion, I would prefer to see
      40% to armed groups, 30% to stakeholders, and 30% gov
      or possibly even
      40% to armed groups, 40% to stakeholders, and 20% gov

      This will have no impact on bringing SLA-AW to the table. It definitely will not impact SPLM-N Al-Hilu negotiating position.
      It might influence some of the smaller armed groups.

        Mr. Al Hilu has genuine cause. His people of Nuba Mountains and Southern Blue Nile died in trenches here in South Sudan with us blasting out your cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan of our country. *Yasir Arman is one of cloned so-called arab of North Sudan, but he doesn’t like your cloned so-called intrigues. Chap, I am one of the SPLA boys who will again help bomb you cloned so-called>>

          Arabs out of El Khartoum, Jerusalem and give Eastern Jerusalem to ’Palestinian people’. Islam is not ’a regional and will never be a religion’. Tel Aviv would be taken care of chap. Our Gambella region would be taken back, and this is precisely after we bomb the Abeshas, the so-called ethiopians, Djiboutians with the mighty US army base and France with the land the vermins are on>>>>

            back to Yemen and Saudi Arabia, reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM. The evil juus (so-called israelis), the US, the UK, the UN and some of their creepy allies in between here in the AU and the IGAD are very desperate for a war in South Sudan. And the vermins are going to get it with a bucket full of it. The vermins have ’miscalculated their dirty intrigues’>>>>

              Mr. Fathi,
              Islam is not a religion, never has been and will never ever will under the sun. And evil juus (so-called israel) was the the one *who lied to Mohamed in 630th AD, in today Saudi Arabia, to copy cat everything in the Old Bible and called it Quran, and tweaked in his Arab bullsh*ts into chap*.>>>>

                South Sudan and South Sudanese people are the most *prized by evils l had just mentioned above chap* But the vermins are going to be bombed out of map once and for all. Reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM. Our ancestors welcomed Arabs into our country, but it has becomes our biggest nightmare to get the low lives back to *Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and some of lowly recruits from Darfur back>>>>

                • 11 July 2020 18:06, by Avenger of Dinkas/mounyjiengs

                  to West Africa*. But we are going to bomb the vermins out of our country and our people after all. Reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM. Not every ten (10) years is when South Sudan and South Sudanese people would be played over by some creeps who are not equal with us. Fathi chap, listen very hard chap.>>>

                    mighty US and her NATO have been challenged. There is going to be very bad fireworks that will destroy most of you fools. Most of your low lives who demonstrating in El Khartoum were financed by *anarchists, their evil juus (so-called israelis), some of their Bantuses low lives from Nigeria, gulf Arab states, their UN and their sleazy sleazy NGOs*>>>>

                      The whole cheap and dirty game behind all these is: to always Geopolitical chess game or football play South Sudan and the South Sudanese people. And that South Sudan would be ’re-united with North Sudan’ just like their then ’East and West Germany during their so-called called COLD WAR. Good luck, that is not going to happen under the sun or even in million years. In facts,>>>>

                      • 11 July 2020 18:29, by Avenger of Dinkas/mounyjiengs

                        the opposite is glaringly true. Chap, have you ever heard of the so-called "one country, two system" In 1999, the evils who were screaming about their so-called "one country, two systems when our mighty SPLM/A was negotiating with your cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan. In Machakos, Nairobi and Nairobi----were the English criminals, their evil Juus (so-called israelis)>>>>

                        • 11 July 2020 18:39, by Avenger of Dinkas/mounyjiengs

                          the so-called *Africa unity and regional integration* isn’t going to pass over South Sudan as far as we are concerned. Abiy Ahmed, Uhuru Kenyatta, Raila Odinga, Barack Hussein Obama, Susan Rice and their bunch of *secret societies who worship them, their evil juus (so-called israel), Ban Ki Moon, Saudi Arabia, the UN, their sleazy NGOs come and bring their so-called NEW WORLD ORDER nonsense>>>>

                          • 11 July 2020 18:39, by Avenger of Dinkas/mounyjiengs
