A first round of negotiations took place in Juba in mid-September.   In the second round, in October 2019, agreements on the two-zone line between the government and the Sudan People`s Liberation Movement (al-Hilu) (SPLM-N (al-Hilu) were signed on 18 October 2019 and on the Darfur line between the government and the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF).  The third round began in mid-December on the South Sudan line, the two-zone line with SPLM-N (Agar) and the Darfur Highway.  The guarantors of the agreement of Chad, Qatar, Egypt, the African Union, the European Union and the United Nations have also committed themselves to the agreement. The members of the Security Council welcomed the signing on 3 October 2020 in Juba of the Juba peace agreement by the Sudanese government, the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SDF) and the Minni Minawi Sudan Liberation Movement. On 31 August 2020, a comprehensive peace agreement was signed between the Sovereignty Council and the SRF, including SPLM-N (Minnawi) and JEM for the Darfur line and SPLM-N (Agar) for the two-zone line.   In accordance with the agreement, the signatory political groups are entitled to three seats on the Sovereignty Council, five ministers in the transitional cabinet and a quarter of the seats in the transitional government. At the regional level, signatories are entitled to 30-40% of the seats in temporary parliaments in their home country or region.   On 12 November, Ahlam Nasir, on behalf of the women of Sudanese political and political groups (MANSAM), met with Mohammed al-Ta`ishi, arguing that women should be involved in peace negotiations. Nasir presented concrete proposals for women`s participation in the negotiations and MANSAM`s priorities in the peace process.  According to Neville Melvin Gertze of Namibia, speaking at a UN Security Council meeting in October 2019, peace agreements that are the result of negotiations, including women, are 35% more likely to last at least 15 years than those that are the result of negotiations solely for men. A final agreement on the East Line was reached on 21 February 2020. The terms of the agreement implied an increased representation of South Sudan in federal government structures; creating a locally funded reconstruction fund; and the creation of an internationally funded private bank in East Sudan to support political, educational, health and other structures.  The peace agreement between the interim government of Sudan and the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF), a broad alliance of armed and other movements, and Minni Minwi`s Sudan Liberation Movement is not yet complete as it does not include two other major armed movements. CAIRO – Leaders of Sudan`s interim government and a number of rebel groups signed a peace agreement Saturday in Juba, South Sudan`s capital, that observers hope will end nearly two decades of conflict in war-torn areas, including Darfur. While talks were underway in Darfur, the SLM (Minnawi) and jeM withdrew from the SRF in mid-May 2020, while continuing their alliance and giving the same name to their new alliance (Sudan Revolutionary Front). Since June 2020, MLS (al-Nur) has continued to boycott peace talks until national authorities ensure Darfur`s security.  In both regions, Amar Daldoum, on behalf of SPLM-N (al-Hilu) and Shams al-Din Khabbashi, signed an agreement on political, security and humanitarian procedures on behalf of the Sovereignty Council on behalf of the Sovereignty Council. The agreement was co-signed by the president of the mediation team, Tut Galwak.
