Despite the announcement by the civil forces that signed the framework agreement in Sudan that they have received the final political agreement, differences regarding the file of security and military reform are still outstanding, which may threaten the chances of reaching an agreement that ends the final stage of the political process.
The Joint Technical Committee between the Army and Rapid Support ruled out the completion of the outstanding issues between the two parties today, Wednesday, which means postponing the signing of the final agreement scheduled for tomorrow, Thursday, according to Al-Arabiya/Al-Hadath correspondent.
A military source told Al-Arabiya that the technical committee agreed on a number of points, but it differed on others, especially the issue of the dependency of rapid support during the transitional period.
The source also ruled out the conclusion or agreement today to sign the final agreement tomorrow.
This technical committee was formed of 3 officers from the army and 3 from the rapid support to solve the sticking points between the two parties.

This came after the spokesman for the political process, Khaled Omar, announced that the civil forces had received the final draft agreement after including the notes of all parties, adding that they were awaiting the completion of the details of the schedules of the four stages of the reform, merger and modernization process by the technical committees of the army and rapid support.
The civil forces indicated that they had started arranging an urgent meeting between the military and civilian forces that signed the framework agreement, with the aim of discussing the obstacles that delayed the signing of the final agreement and ways to overcome them.
It is noteworthy that the five-day deadline, previously agreed upon by the civil and military parties, is scheduled to expire today, in order for the technical committees to resolve the dispute between the army and Rapid Support regarding the issue of merging forces, and thus announcing the final political agreement, which is supposed to put the country back on track.
