July 28, 2016 (KHARTOUM) - The head of the African Union High Level Implementation Panel (AUHIP) Thabo Mbeki will meet with the opposition Sudan Call forces during the next week of August, said the National Umma Party (NUP).

The head of NUP political bureau Mohamed Mahdi Hassan Thursday told Sudan Tribune the AUHIP Executive Director Abdel Gader Mohamed (Abdul) informed the Sudan Call groups that Mbeki would meet them in the second week of August without giving the exact date.

"The meeting will discuss the demands of the opposition and its reservations over the road map," Hassan said, adding that they will decide to sign it or not based on the outcome of the meeting.

Abdul met the Sudan call forces in Paris on 21 July where they gave him a letter to Mbeki expressing their readiness to sign the Roadmap Agreement after a meeting to discuss their demands for additional confidence building measures and inclusive process.

The opposition groups said Mbeki reassured them in a letter he had sent on 23 June where he said that Addis Ababa meeting - proposed in the roadmap - with the Sudanese government dialogue body is in fact the national dialogue preparatory meeting, and all the Sudan Call factions can attend it.

Observers point the Sudan Call forces are now divided over the negotiations with the government as some say that the ruling National Congress Party would not accept to implement a peace agreement they may reach, or the outcome of the dialogue process.

Some parties of the internal opposition groups refused to take part in Paris meeting while others attended. Those who boycotted are not expected to take part in the upcoming meeting.
