Sudanese government and SPLM-N traded accusations over alleged attempt to collapse the peace talks as they failed for the second day to agree on the agenda of the humanitarian access and the cessations of hostilities in the Two Areas.
Following the signing of the Roadmap Agreement by the opposition groups on Monday, the Sudanese government and SPLM-N negotiating delegations agreed in a consultation meeting held on Tuesday 9 August to resume talks based on a draft framework agreement they had endorsed 80% of its elements during the previous rounds in the past three years.
In accordance with the draft framework agreement, the parties would discuss first ways to open humanitarian corridors to reach civilians in the war affected areas of the Blue Nile and South Kordofan states.
Sudanese activists in the fields of Art, culture and education wrote a letter to Sudanese political leaders who have gathered in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, urging to resume talks for peace in Sudan.
The calls come as the Sudanese government and opposition groups: SPLM-N, the Darfur armed movements and opposition alliances begin ceasefire talks.
Sudanese government and armed opposition negotiating teams on Darfur and South Kordofan and Blue Nile began direct talks on Wednesday in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa.
