The two warring parties in Sudan have agreed to cease fighting for seven days. The agreement was signed between the country’s army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) on Saturday, mediated by the United States and Saudi Arabia.
The ceasefire will take effect from 10:15 pm Khartoum time on Monday, the two mediating countries said in their joint statement.
Earlier, several ceasefire agreements between the two sides were violated. This year’s agreement will be implemented through a US-Saudi Arabia and internationally supported monitoring system, the statement said.
The agreement calls for the distribution of humanitarian aid, the resumption of emergency services and the withdrawal of forces from both sides from hospitals and government facilities. Reuters.
