The Darfur Front consists mostly of leaders and cadres of armed struggle in the Darfur region who have had political and military experiences since the eruption of armed revolutionary action in the western Sudan region in 2003.

The statement said the talks have between the two groups started two years ago.

In line with the merger deal, it was decided to establish a civil administrative council for the Darfur region, to appoint some commanders in the SPLA-N command and to integrate three members of Darfur Front in the SPLM-N leadership council.
