South Sudan’s Peace Talks End In Need For Further Consultations

"The two guarantors of the R-ARCSS could not resolve the stalemate and accordingly closed the meeting with conclusion that the Government will go back to South Sudan and conduct popular consultation with people of South Sudan"

From Beny Gideon Mabor in Addis Ababa

Following the continuation of yesterday's Summit of the IGAD Heads of States and Government on the situation of the Republic of South Sudan, the Summit delegated His Excellency Dr. Abdalla Hamdok, Prime Minister of the Republic of Sudan and Chair of IGAD General Assembly and His Excellency General Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, President of the Republic of Uganda, both as co-guarantors of the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (R-ARCSS ) 2018.

The Summit mandated the two leaders to separately and jointly meet with His Excellency General Salva Kiir Mayardit, President of the Republic of South Sudan, and His Excellency Dr. Riek Machar, leader of the Sudan People Liberation Movement in Opposition (SPLM-IO) with objective to reach amicable solution on the outstanding issue of number of States in the Republic of South Sudan.

As a result, Dr. Riek made a U-turn position and recommitted the position of the SPLM-IO to only 10 States plus Abyei Administrative Area, while President Salva Kiir, on behalf of the Government maintains the position of the 32 states plus Abyei Administrative Area respectively.

The two guarantors of the R-ARCSS could not resolve the stalemate and accordingly closed the meeting with conclusion that the Government will go back to South Sudan and conduct popular consultation with people of South Sudan and thereafter, the final outcome shall be communicated to the regional and international community in due course.
