Deby proposes to meet Darfur rebel leader in Chad: Sudan’s VP


May 13, 2014 (KHARTOUM) – Chadian president Idris Deby has proposed to meet the leaders of the Darfur holdout rebel groups in Ndjamena to discuss ways to end the 11 year conflict, Sudanese vice-president said on Tuesday.

Addressing the Africa-China relations forum in Khartoum, Hasabo Abdel Rahman said the presidency received on Monday a letter from the president Deby proposing to invite Abdel Wahid Al-Nur, Gibril Ibrahim and Minni Minnawi to meet him in Ndjamena to discuss ways to join the Doha Document for Peace in Darfur (DDPD).

Abdel Rahman reiterated the government seriousness to achieve peace in Darfur. He further said that the leaders of the rebel groups can join the national dialogue, stressing that they are keen to not exclude anyone from this political process.

Deby is tasked by the Zaghawa tribal leaders to persuade Ibrahim and Minnawi who belong to the same ethnic group to end war and to negotiate a peace agreement with the government.

Last month he met in Paris with the leader of Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) to brief him about the outcome of Um Jaras tribal forum. It was also reported that he wants to meet with Minnawi.

The Chadian president believes that the continuation of the armed conflict affects the political stability of his regime and hampers trade and prevents the two neighbours from implementation a number of joint economic projects.

The leader of Sudan Liberation Movement –Minni Minnawi (SLM-MM) last Friday told Sudan Tribune he would meet the Chadian president if he is approached to present him a roadmap the SRF, Sudanese Revolutionary Front, proposed in April for a comprehensive peace in Sudan.

Darfur rebel groups rejects the DDPD, and propose to unify peace tracks for the armed conflicts in Blue Nile, Darfur, and South Kordofan to negotiate a peaceful solution for these crises.

They also agree on the need for a national conference on the permanent constitution but propose to negotiate its agenda, and to determine who can participate in it.

    Abdelwahid Nur must take this opportunity to convince Deby to exit from the camp of Genocide and join the camp of humanity. The other leaders are just captives of jealousy otherwise, there is no reason for them not to come together with Mr Nur and unite the people of Darfur. Deby must leave Qatar and NIF and stand with his brothers & sisters from Darfur.
