Sudan – Ceasefire (October 23, 2015)


France welcomes the declaration by the Sudan Revolutionary Front on October 18 of a 6-month unilateral ceasefire in the regions of Darfur, South Kordofan and Blue Nile.

This is an important step on the path toward the restoration of peace.

We urge the Sudanese government to demonstrate its commitment to the success of national dialogue by issuing, in the same way, an official declaration confirming the cessation of fighting for 6 months.

France reaffirms its support for the resumption of negotiations in Addis Ababa in November.
