Sudan`s interim government and several rebel groups have signed a peace agreement aimed at resolving years of wars that have left hundreds of thousands dead and millions displaced in different parts of the country. Others say the U.S. withdrawal is due in part to the Obama administration`s inability to have the U.S. Senate ratify the Paris agreement. The guarantors of the agreement of Chad, Qatar, Egypt, the African Union, the European Union and the United Nations also welcomed the agreement. “We know that the UK and the EU, as well as the UN Secretary-General, are planning an event on 12 December, the fifth anniversary of the conclusion of negotiations on the Paris Agreement, where they will try to achieve more ambition,” said Andrew Light. “We should really put all our efforts into the final phase of the talks in the hope of reaching an agreement,” said the Chancellor. Helen Mountford of the World Resources Institute said she was disappointed by the withdrawal and told the BBC: “The decision to leave the Paris Agreement was a mistake when it was announced, and it is still wrong today.” Carlos Fuller of Belize, the negotiator of the UN Alliance of Small Island States, called the move a “big blow” to the agreement and said he felt that climate diplomats had failed because a country had unsubscribe. “This historic diplomatic breakthrough will promote peace in the Middle East region and demonstrate the courageous diplomacy and vision of the three leaders and the courage of the United Arab Emirates and Israel to find a new path that will unlock the region`s great potential,” he said.

Israel salutes the courage of the CBM for the historic decision of the United Arab Emirates to join Egypt (1979) and Jordan (1994) in the conclusion of peace with Israel.
