Khartoum- Sudan (PANA) -- Senior members of the main group of Sudan Liberation Movement (SLM) are in Khartoum to strategize how to implement the recently signed Darfur Peace Agreement (DPA) that is intended to end what the UN had describes as the world's worst humanitarian crisis.
Led by Abdelkarim Al Sheikh and a number of SLM senior political and military officials, the delegation was greeted on arrival Monday at the Khartoum airport by al-Fatih Mohamed Saeed, the State Minister at the Ministry of Health and the Head of the Joint Committee for the reception of the vanguard delegation.
Al Sheikh has said that the delegation includes senior military and political leadership from the movement as well as secretaries of various secretariats and member of the Revolutionary Liberation Council.
He expressed journalists that he hope the delegation would find the credibility and the transparency so that the agreement would be fully implemented.
Al Sheikh hailed the Sudanese people and the citizens of Darfur in particular, as well as the international community and friends and partners of the DPA.
Reliable sources confirmed here that Libyan leader Moammar Kadhafi had invited the main three Darfur rebel groups in a bid to convince the abstaining factions to sign the African Union- brokered DPA.
The sources told PANAPRESS that the rebel delegations are now heading to Tripoli, Libya to attend the meeting convened by the Libyan leader to discuss the reasons of their refusal to sign the agreement.
The rebel SLM al-Nur faction and the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) led by Khalil Ibrahim resist all regional and international pressures to sign DPA, saying Khartoum has to meet crucial demands related to Janjaweed militias' disarmament, power sharing and individual compensations for Darfur affected civilians.
The rebel sources said "without genuine guarantees from Kadhafi on how Khartoum will meet their demands" the two rebel groups will reject the Libyan initiative.
It appeared the holdout rebel groups, particularly SLM- al-Nur, intend to exploit the after 5 May mounting popularity and the regular protests organised by the Darfurians in western Sudan and Khartoum against the signed peace deal, to demand full satisfaction to their demands.
