Global Affairs Canada today issued the following statement:

“Canada views the news of the interim power-sharing agreement between the Transitional Military Council and the Forces of Freedom and Change in Sudan as a positive step forward. We would like to thank the African Union and Ethiopian envoys on mediating this agreement.
