To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what progress is being made towards a lasting peace deal in Darfur; which parties have (a) signed and (b) not signed the 2006 peace deal for that region.
We welcome the 6 December signing in Berlin of a "Pre-Negotiation Agreement for the Resumption of the Peace Process" in Darfur. We continue to press all parties to engage with the peace process, including progress towards a permanent ceasefire, and ensure full humanitarian access. The 2006 Darfur Peace Agreement (also referred to as the Abuja Agreement) was signed by the Government of Sudan and the Sudan Liberation Movement – Mini Minnawi. This agreement was not signed by the Justice and Equality Movement and the Sudan Liberation Army – Abdul Wahid.
