DOHA, July 15 (Xinhua) -- A Sudanese government representative for the Darfur peace talks told Xinhua on Thursday that "many consultations" are needed before a final peace deal with rebel groups could be born.
Amin Hassan Omar made the remarks after a meeting of Darfur's civil societies held in Qatar's capital Doha, the venue for several rounds of negotiations between Khartoum and Darfur's rebel factions.
Omar said the Sudanese government is currently engaged in talks with the Liberation and Justice Movement (LJM) on power-sharing and refugees of conflicts among other issues.
The LJM said last month it would demand an equal power-sharing deal based on population density during the negotiations.
Khartoum can only make concessions on "reasonable demands" from the rebel groups, "but we can not satisfy everything on the ' shopping-list,'" Omar said.
Qatar-mediated Darfur peace talks have made remarkable headways this year, but sporadic fightings in the western Sudanese region have marred the process.
In February and March, the Sudanese government finalized ceasefire agreement with the LJM and the key guerrilla, the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM), but the JEM in May froze further peace talks on the accusation that the government launched continued attacks on them.
Leader of the hardline Sudan Liberation Army rebel Abdel Wahid Mohamed Nour, who has shunned peace talks since 2006, said last Friday his group was in favor of Qatar-brokered negotiations.
Omar said the Sudanese government welcomes any rebel guerillas to return to the negotiating table to end the seven years of conflicts.
