NAIROBI, Kenya – In hopes of ending nearly two decades of bloodshed that has left hundreds of thousands dead and millions more displaced, Sudan`s interim government on Monday signed a peace agreement with an alliance of rebel groups to end fighting in Darfur and southern South Kordofan and Blue Nile regions. «At the Juba Declaration in September, everyone expected peace to be signed within two or three months, but… We realized that the issues were very complex,» Hamdok said.
