He said in a statement on Twitter that the meeting included Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, Chairman of the Sovereignty Council and Commander-in-Chief of the Sudanese Armed Forces, and his deputy, Muhammad Hamdan Dagalo, Commander of the Rapid Support Forces, in addition to the leaders of the civil parties that signed the framework agreement, in the presence of the tripartite mechanism.
He also added, “The draft agreement included six parts, which are the final political agreement that was based on the framework agreement, the political declaration, the transitional constitution, and five annexed protocols that are part of the agreement.”
Security and military reform
He stated that the parties agreed to collect notes on the draft until March 29, and to incorporate the recommendations of the security and military reform workshop into it, so that the agreement would be fully ready.
Youssef said that the meeting also discussed the report of the Communication Committee with the non-signatories to the framework agreement, and decided to redouble efforts to urge them to sign the political declaration and join the ongoing political process, hoping to discuss and sign the final political agreement with the rest of the parties to the framework political agreement at the agreed time.
