The fist vice-president and president of the Government of Southern Sudan, Salva Kiir Mayardit, is to visit Chad on Monday March 19 during which he is to hold talks with the Chadian president, Idriss Deby and leaders of Darfur rebel groups which have not signed the Abuja agreement.

Speaking to Al-Ray al-Amm, the Sudanese ambassador to Chad, Abdallah Sheikh, said that Salva Kiir’s visit to N’djamena comes after the successful visit made by the state minister at the ministry of internal affairs, Aliu Ayang.

He added that the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement had, during the recent period, worked hard to normalize ties between the two countries.

In his meeting with the rebel groups Salva Kiir is expected to invite the holdout rebels to determine their demands and to adopt a joint position before peace talks with Khartoum.
