A PEACE deal for South Sudan should be signed in two weeks’ time, negotiators said on their return from Sudan’s capital, Khartoum, earlier this week.
Discussions had been taking place between Sudan’s transitional government and rebel groups in South Sudan’s capital, Juba, but had been hampered by the outbreak of Covid-19.
South Sudan’s chief negotiator, Tut Galwak, said: “For us to reach lasting peace, there are dossiers or issues that cannot be discussed via video link, for example security arrangements.
“We have agreed that a delegation from Khartoum should come to Juba … and continue with their brothers in finalising security arrangements.”
Talks with Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok are set to continue next week.
The deal will in rebel groups that had been fighting the previous government of Omar al-Bashir and operating in the Darfur, Blue Nile and Kordofan regions.
“Once we complete these dossiers after two weeks, [South Sudan President] Salva Kiir will invite his colleagues, the Igad [trading bloc’s] heads of state and the friends of Sudan who would want to witness the signing of Sudan’s peace agreement to come to Juba,” Mr Galwak said.
