United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres this Saturday celebrated the signing of the peace agreement in Sudan between the Sudanese government and the country’s main armed groups despite the “difficulties” caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
“Today’s signing of the peace agreement in Juba marks the beginning of a new era for the citizens of Sudan. This is a milestone on the way to lasting peace and inclusive development. I congratulate the signatories on their work towards the common goal of peace,” said Guterres via the social network Twitter.
In doing so, he indicated that the United Nations would support “the historic road to peace” in Sudan and called for “all” cooperation in this process, with an emphasis on the situation in Darfur.
In this spirit, the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs, Josep Borrell, said that this was a “historic day” for the country, its citizens and the entire region.
