On Monday, Sudan's military and civilian leaders signed a framework agreement to end the political impasse and institute a two-year transitional civilian authority.
Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, commander of the Sudanese Army, and Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, commander of the Rapid Support Forces, signed the deal on behalf of the military forces.
