Mini-committee to Address Disputes Between SAF and RSF in Jeddah

Jeddah – Sudan Events

Sources from the city of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, where bilateral discussions are being held regarding stopping the fighting between the Sudanese army (SAF) and the rebel Rapid Support (RSF) militia, informed the mediation of the formation of a mini-committee whose membership emerges from the two participating delegations and aims to discuss controversial issues between the two.

According to the decision, SAF named Maj.Gen. Abu Bakr Fageeri, “the chief negotiator” of the delegation, and Lt. Col.Talal Suleiman, a member of the delegation, as its representatives in the committee in what was called Rapid Support, Brig.Gen.Omar Hamdan, “head of the delegation,” and Nizar Sayed Ahmed, who was classified as an expert on his behalf in the mini-committee.

The committe has a limited mandate related to discussing controversial issues between the two delegations and ways to stop hostilities between the two sides.

The mediation, consisting of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the United States of America, and the joint representative of the African Union and IGAD, recently presented to the two delegations the draft general principles, cessation of hostilities, and the Joint Center for Monitoring the Ceasefire, to express an opinion on it and then agree on it. This represents the insistence of the RSF on establishing bases in the cities of the capital and deploying observation points over entrances and bridges- one of the biggest points of disagreement between the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Militia in the Jeddah negotiations resumed last week.
