January 29, 2017 (KHARTOUM) - Sudan’s President Omer al-Bashir will meet his South Sudanese counterpart on the sidelines of the 28th African Union Summit of the Heads of State and Government in Addis Ababa next week.

Sudanese Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour disclosed Saturday that the two leaders will meet in Addis Ababa to discuss peace in South Sudan. He made his remarks following a meeting with the head of the UN Mission in South Sudan David Shearer.

Sudan is a member of the IGAD mechanism that brokered a peace agreement signed by the South Sudanese warring parties in August 2015. Also, Khartoum has opened its river and land border to allow international humanitarian assistance to the South Sudanese.

In his statements published by the official SUNA , Ghandour said the meeting comes in the framework of the role played by President al-Bashir and Sudan in support of the (regional) efforts to stop the war and achieve reconciliation between the warring factions in South Sudan.

During a meeting of the IGAD leaders held last year, Bashir called for an inclusive process involving the SPLM-IO leader Riek Machar. He also backed the regional efforts to prevent the resumption of war in the neighbouring country after Juba clashes in July 20016.

The two leaders are also expected to discuss the deployment of the joint force on the buffer zone to prevent cross-border attacks by rebel groups.

    Why many hate Kiir and his government? I think it is because he comes from Dinka community, whose their land size and population is almost 3/4 of the country population, but what if Kiir step aside as many people claim so, could the same deed be replicated to the government that shall replace kiir government or shall it be the time to forget past and open new page? Negative critism is bad than wa

        For those who were in SPLM/A since its inception upto the end , Jieng council of Elders were present and contributed to librations of South Sudan , but because librations price was people life, some communities did not bother because Jieng council of elders used to contribute their own sons to fight war for other people freedom, was it Dinka stupidity to do so?

          It think u are not a ss too. U are not aware that most of those JCE members were against the splm/a in 80s. They are here now in govt becoz Dr Garang is dead. Yes, the jce idea was there that is why the Dinka have 39 laws against the Nuer. Daniel Awat Akol manages those laws. What is happening in ss now is implementation of jce agenda but will fail.Dinka is 1/4 of ss population NOT 3/4.
