The finalization of the agreement follows a year of discussions and comes a few months after a first agreement was reached on 31 August. The signatory parties must now strive to implement the provisions of these agreements as quickly as possible in order to achieve lasting peace in all regions of the country and to promote reconciliation among all the peoples of Sudan. On 24 December, Hemetti, on behalf of the Sovereignty Council, and el-Tom Hajo, deputy head of the SRF and head of the central railway negotiating team, signed a peace agreement on «development, peasant affairs, the El Gezira and El Managil agricultural programme, land rights, in addition to an equitable distribution of wealth.» Hajo called the agreement «inclusive» without «quotas or positions.»  France reaffirms its full support for the ongoing democratic transition in Sudan and stands ready to assist the Sudanese authorities in facilitating the successful implementation of peace agreements. He reiterated his appeal to movements that did not sign the 3 October agreements to join the peace process in Sudan and contribute to reconciliation efforts among all the peoples of Sudan. The agreement between the government and the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF), an alliance of rebel groups, was signed at a ceremony in Juba, the capital of neighbouring South Sudan. On 28 December, four representatives from Darfur and Khabbashi signed a framework agreement on the Darfur road, which includes issues such as power-sharing, wealth sharing, transitional justice and the Darfur-Darfur dialogue.  On 31 December, the SRF suspended talks on the Darfur road as part of the fighting that left 708 people dead and injured in el-Geneina.  A FFC delegation visiting the region attributed the conflict to the «deep state» and the victims attributed it to «janjaweed» and «militant shepherds in Rapid Support Forces vehicles».  A comprehensive peace agreement was signed on 31 August 2020 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.   «This agreement will focus on democracy, the economy and livelihoods.
