January 29, 2014 (KHARTOUM) – Sudanese military team participating in the Monitoring and Verification Mechanism (MVM) set by the IGAD mediators will arrive to the capital of the Upper Nile state Malakal on Thursday.

A member of IGAD mediation team, Mohamed Ahmed Mustafa al-Dabi , on Wednesday, said that Sudanese monitors will arrive to Malakal on Thursday where they will start their duties .

He further said that the other IGAD members including Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan and Uganda will participate in the monitoring. Each country will send four monitors.

The rebels contest the participation of Ugandan monitors saying they are part of the conflict.

Speaking from Addis Ababa, al-Dabi told the official Sudan news agency SUNA, that the monitoring teams will be deployed in Akobo, Bentiu, Bor, and Malakal. Juba will host the MVM headquarters which will be chaired by an Ethiopian general with a Sudanese counterpart who will second him.

The South Sudanese government chief negotiator Nhial Deng Nhial urged to deploy the monitoring teams, as Juba accuse the rebels of breaching the cessation of hostilities agreement reached on 23 January.

The rebel SPLM/A In Opposition also accuses the SPLA of violating the deal.

Regarding the resumption of peace negotiations, the Sudanese mediator said they will resume the preparation for the next round of talks after the deployment of the monitoring teams within the next two days.

      I agree 100% with tootke’bai-ngo. Sudanese cannot be trusted. It’s pointless arguing about which side they support. It is guaranteed that they are only furthering their agenda, at our expense of course.
