    "This is not the end of anything. This is just the start," Ahmed Hussein Adam, a JEM spokesman, told Reuters from N'Djamena, the capital of Chad, where he also said the JEM leadership had held discussions with a Sudanese government delegation for the last three days.

    "We are ready to sign a temporary ceasefire when the terms of the framework agreement are agreed," he said.
