SPLA withdraws from South Kordofan & South Darfur

16 September 2007 (Miraya FM)

The Sudan People’s Liberation Army has today begun withdrawing from the South Kordofan and South Darfur regions. The withdrawal comes after an agreement with the Sudan Armed Forces within the Political Ceasefire Commission. 

A member of the commission, al-Dirdiri Mohamed Ahmed assured Miraya FM that both sides were happy with the agreement and the United Nations is monitoring the number of withdrawing troops.

deadlock had erupted a few days ago when the Armed Forces detained a number of SPLA soldiers in al-Mujlad region in South Kordofan due to the Armed Forces’ opposition to the armament and military training practices the SPLA is conducting.
