Cease-Fire in Darfur
Last week, I wrote about presidential hopeful Bill Richardson making a trip to Sudan to try to broker some sort of peace deal.
Well, it looks like it happened. Flying under the radar last Tuesday was this statement that the rebels and the Sudanese government were ready to begin (again) a discussion of peace. Both sides agreed to a 60-day cease fire to begin negotiating an agreement.
While this is a lot of talk, it is a sign of hope that this genocide will indeed come to an end soon. Like the peace deal of last May, this agreement is very tender and fragile and the smallest infraction by either party will undo some hard work.
