Statement by Official Spokesperson on the peace accord signed between the Government of Sudan and the Sudan People's Liberation Movement

09/01/2005

The Government of India welcomes the peace accord signed between the Government of Sudan and the Sudan People's Liberation Movement on 9th January 2005 in Nairobi under the auspices of the Inter Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD). This accord is demonstrative of the statesmanship of the leaders of both sides, President Omer Bashir and Dr. John Garang, and will not only put an end to two decades of civil war in Sudan but also pave the way for more rapid economic progress and development in the entire nation.

We also note that this accord is a successful demonstration of direct peace negotiations between the parties concerned, arrived at by mutual accord within the State without resort to force, in a peaceful manner, and will further strengthen the integrity and sovereignty of a multi-ethnic and pluralistic State such as Sudan. It will also bring greater stability to the region and enable Sudan to play its rightful role in the region.
