Between 10-11 June, negotiations took place between Sudanese government officials and seven armed factions from the Darfur region in Niamey, Niger, under the auspices of the French NGO Promediation. They discussed the peace process in Sudan and the withdrawal of Sudanese mercenaries from Libya. Eric Blanchot, Promediation’s Director-General, told Sudanese media that the process seeks to ensure the reintegration of mercenaries into Sudanese security forces and society. The Sudan Liberation Army of Abdel Wahid al-Nur and its commander in Libya Youssif Karakula were not part of the process, nor was Abdallah Banda’s group.
