The Joint Chief Mediator met with the leaders of the non-signatory movements Sudan Liberation Army/Abdul Wahid (SLA/AW), Sudan Liberation Army / Minni Minawi (SLA/MM) and the Justice and Equality Movement / Gibril Ibrahim (JEM/Gibril) to follow-up on the outcomes of the technical workshop on peace and security in Darfur held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in December2013.
