Khartoum, Nov. 15 (SUNA) – The Vice Chairman of the Transitional Sovereign Council, Lieutenant General Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, noted that the Juba Agreement had turned over a black page of suffering and wars, adding: “we carried guns and fought each other, while our sons and daughters were displaced, this cycle must stop, and we learned to agree just as we disagreed as brothers for the sake of this nation.
During his address to the masses gathered to receive the leaders of the movements that signed the Juba Peace Agreement in the Freedom Square today, Dagalo, assured the Sudanese people that the signed did not and will not be an opponent of anyone, but rather an attempt for the reconstruction of the state on foundations that allow others to live in peace, especially since the agreement was concluded with sincere hands that deserve not to disagree about it, calling for the change of the bullet to chalks.
Dagalo indicated that the peace that has been achieved should its items be brought in reality, to reach a lasting peace in the country.
He called on Abdul Aziz Al-Hilu and Abdul Wahid Mohammed Nour to join the peace process, he added: "We need a new approach for the nation building, so come to join our efforts and start over."
He pointed in his address the many challenges, obstacles and barricades that require concerted efforts to confront them, indicating that the partners of the transitional period must all work for a unified Sudan free from regionalism and racism, and to consciously disagree to achieve the revolution’s slogans of freedom, peace and justice; fully aware of the security, economic, and political risks and difficulties surrounding the country, and to work to overcome them with determination and the people’s unity .
Dagalo has expressed thanks and appreciation to the government and people of the state of Southern Sudan, especially President Salva Kiir and his security advisor, for their care for Juba's Peace Agreement until its realization.
