On Wednesday, the SPLM-N handed over its response to the remarks made by the government on the draft it had filled on 27.

"The two parties may sign the framework agreement on June 6," said Dhieu Matouk, the rapporteur of the mediation after a meeting between the two sides.

Matouk further said that after the signing, the talks would be paused for a week to give time to the negotiating delegation for further consultations.

Matouk said that the discussions are progressing well, and there has been remarkable progress in the talks.

He said that the SPLM’s reservations about the government’s paper "are not essential," pointing out that the two sides insist on the inclusion of certain wording in the agreement.

"We can find a solution for this issue," he added.

Besides the separation of the state and religion, the draft agreement made by the SPLM-N al-Hilu deals with the reform of judicial authority and deals with the Darfur conflict. Also, it proposes to shift the weekend to Wednesday.

The draft proposes a six-month pre-transitional period besides dividing the transitional period into two parts.
