Sudan – Peace agreement between the Sudanese authorities and part of the rebel alliance (August 31, 2020)

France welcomes the peace agreement concluded yesterday in Juba between Sudan's transitional authorities and the armed movements of the Sudan Revolutionary Front and the SLM-Minni Minawi.

It hopes that this agreement will make it possible to restore peace in Darfur and in the two regions of Blue Nile and South Kordofan following decades of violence.

France urges the armed movements that have not signed the August 31 agreement to engage in good faith in negotiations with the Sudanese authorities and to contribute to the reconciliation efforts among all Sudanese people being carried out within the framework of the ongoing political transition in Sudan.



China

1) What is France's response to Chinese Minister Wang Yi's statement in which he threatened the Czech Republic with retaliation and that the country would "pay a heavy price" following the Czech senate speaker's visit to Taiwan?
2) There are calls in Germany for a common EU response. Will there be a French response?

Relations between Europe and China must be based on dialogue, the principle of reciprocity and mutual respect, essential prerequisites for deepening our partnership. In this respect, no threat against an EU member state is acceptable and we express our solidarity with the Czech Republic.
