Turkey is pleased that the ongoing negotiations in Sudan have led to an agreement, the Foreign Ministry said on Friday. 

"We are pleased that the negotiations between the Transitional Military Council and the Forces of Declaration of Freedom and Change in Sudan have led to an agreement,” read the statement.

Referring to the agreement, Turkey wished "this step contributes to the establishment of the stability in Sudan and carrying of the transition period forward through an inclusive understanding," it added.

The two opposing sides reached a power sharing agreement on July 5.

The agreement comes after a long standoff between the two sides since the suspension of talks in May.
