OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — After more than 30 years of political instability, the Sudanese government will be run during a transitional period by both citizens and military leaders.

Seif Balul, a Sudanese immigrant and US veteran said while the power sharing deal is a step in the right direction, the Sudanese community is taking this news with some skepticism and he wants to see results before calling it a success.

"There's a lot of anxiety going on so we're hopeful that peace and stability comes to Sudan and we're hoping this military council will feel the pressure from the international community and do the right thing," Balul said.

Nebraska has one of the largest Sudanese communities in the United States. The power sharing agreement will be in place for the next three years.

In the above web extra, Balul talked with 3 News Now about a wide array of issues regarding Sudan from the recent peace negotiations to the Trump Administration's relatoinship with the Sudanese community.
