Darfur Rebel Group Signs Peace Pact With Government

The Sudanese government has signed a peace agreement with the rival faction, the Liberation Movement for Peace and Development. The move is seen as a major step in finding peace in the country and the Darfur region. The agreement signed allows the rebel group to participate in the national dialogue. It's forces will also be integrated into the national army. The group clashed with government back in 2016, forcing thousands to flee their homes. The movement has been militarily active in the Northern, Middle and Southern States of the region. The AU mediator Thabo Mbeki is preparing for a new round of talks between the government and the rebels in the coming month
