Feki and Masher discuss ways to revive peace in southern Sudan

The head of the African Union Commission, Moussa Faki, and the leader of the armed opposition in southern Sudan, Riek Machar, on Friday discussed ways to revive the South Peace Agreement. The two sides met in South Africa’s capital, Pretoria, according to an official in the southern opposition.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Anatolia that the meeting discussed issues related to reviving the peace agreement signed in August 2015 in Addis Ababa, adding that they stressed the need to end the conflict.

“The meeting was fruitful and will contribute to the revival of the IGAD-sponsored agreement,” he said, adding that it helped overcome the challenges facing the process.

The official of Machar welcomed the visit of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission, stressing his commitment to the peace process and ending the war.

Machar has been in South Africa since October 2016 after being banned from leaving the country “for fear of engaging in new fighting against the army in southern Sudan.”

The IGAD countries recently agreed to release Machar if he agreed to renounce violence, not obstruct peace, and move to any other country outside the region.
