“I remain committed to strengthening lasting peace in Casamance,” Sal said in a statement, thanking President Umar Sissoko Embalo for mediating the agreement.

Hundreds of military and civilian casualties have been recorded in the conflict.

In March, the military launched a large-scale operation against the rebels, destroying several bases.
