At Darfur Peace Talks in Doha, JEM rebels set conditions for agreement

February 11, 2009 report from Al-Hayat, London:
The Darfur rebel Justice and Equality Movement yesterday presented its demands for a framework agreement with the Sudan government at bilateral talks in Qatar.

The demands include: preserving the military force of the organization until a final peace agreement is signed; disbanding the pro-government militias and removing them from Darfur; participation in the Sudanese government; and the elimination of Darfur's partition into provinces.

Movement representative Jibril Ibrahim said that the negotiations with the government did not mean concessions on Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir's status in the International Criminal Court.

Sudanese government representative Nafi' Ali Nafi' expressed a positive view of the draft of the agreement submitted to the sides.
