WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States, United Kingdom and Norway in a joint statement said they welcomed the peace agreement between Sudan's civilian-led transitional government and the Sudan Revolutionary Front as a first step in rebuilding stability in the country.

"It is an important step in restoring security, dignity, and development to the population of Sudan’s conflict-affected and marginalized areas. We believe the formal agreement must be followed up with local peace and reconciliation efforts in the conflict-affected areas," the countries said in the statement.
