(MENAFN) Qatar’s Emir, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani, said that the country will donate $1 billion to a fund that aims to reconstruct the war-wrecked Sudan, Reuters reported.

Qatar has sponsored peace talks between the Sudanese government and rebels. Al-Thani commented that the ceasefire agreement was a steadfast step toward a peaceful solution. The deal is intended as a framework for a broader peace deal between the two parties.
