June 27, 2018 (KHARTOUM) - UN Secretary-General Wednesday welcomed the Declaration of Agreement signed by the South Sudanese parties for peace in South Sudan saying he encouraged by the deal signed in Khartoum.

The signed framework which deals with the outstanding issues in the peace revitalization forum stressed on the parties’ commitment to implement the permanent ceasefire within 75 hours based on the cessation of hostilities agreement.

They also commit themselves to finalize talks on the outstanding issues in the security arrangement chapter within three days.

“The Secretary-General notes that this Declaration of Agreement is signed at a time when the security situation in parts of South Sudan continues to deteriorate, marked by violations of the Cessation of Hostilities Agreement of December 2017 (COHA) with killings of civilians and other atrocities. He, therefore, welcomes the Parties renewed commitment to redouble their efforts in the interest of peace,” says Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesman for the Secretary-General.

Dujarric further commended the pledges of parties to settle the remaining differences in the implementation of the governance chapter.

“The Secretary-General urges all parties to demonstrate the political leadership required at this critical juncture of the peace process and engage to reach agreement on the outstanding issues of governance and security arrangements,” he stressed.

The UN chief also renewed his readiness to support the implementation of the peace agreement in South Sudan.

The South Sudanese parties will move for the third round of talks in Nairobi two by the end of the first week of July.

    No one is interested in war in South Sudan. But war is being imposed on by the US, the UK, their UN, their NGOs, their evil juus & their gulf Arab state’s financiers with their outrageous quest for their so-called NEW WORLD ORDER UN government establishment in our country. Our creeps from the UN & the NGOs, watch out fellows>>>

      your love affair with our country & our people has gone too far and it must be tackled head on. There is no country on earth where by all the opposition parties would want to rule the country with the same government they think it policies are different from their parties policies. There is country on earth being rule that way. But there are some evils in the US, the UK, their UN, their NGOs,>>>

        their evil juus & their gulf Arab state’s financiers think, they can experiment that ’non existence kind of democracy’ in our country and our people. Because our country and our people is/are considered to be a piece of trash around the world would want to come and test their piece of shit in. Fellows, watch out.

                Mr. Lino,
                If you fellows are deluded that there was something called peace signed by the two leaders and that will come & be implemented here on the ground in South Sudan? Then you fellows are being delusional. What is being negotiated in foreign capitals isn’t about a sustainable peace in South Sudan. Trust me fellows and it will come and end up like the July 2016 piece of crap and this next>>>

                  violence would be more wide spread and more deadly than the July 2016. The reasons why the mediators (the IGAD countries & their sponsors from the US, the UK, the UN and their gulf Arab states’ financiers) are keeping away the real South Sudanese people who would come & own the peace themselves. But trying to deal with their selective bunch of puppets, thieves & traitors in foreign capitals>>

                    is a red alarm lowly informed Mr. Lino. Riek Machar knows he is not coming back to South Sudan and be part of the current government of South Sudan. But what platform or leverage do people like Pagan Amuom, Thomas Cirillo, Rebecca Nyandeng, her son, Majak Agoot, Adwok Nyabe, Uyai Deng Ajak, Kosti Manibe, Gabriel Changson, Deng Alor and other have on the ground?>>>

                      None. But some criminals in the IGAD countries and their sponsors from the US, the UK, their UN & their gulf Arab state’s paymasters are repeating the same mistake again by imposing their own damn peace & interests. That will come and have millions of South Sudanese who will respect an imposed peace by foreign countries with their own countries national interests in our country>>>

                        Our "national dialogue" here inside South Sudan" and "front of South Sudanese and South Sudanese people is the right way to bring a sustainable peace in our country fools. Otherwise, those losers, traitors, foreign puppets and thieves with their foreign masters are wasting their damn times & our times.

      Sunday Junup,
      I am surprised a Nuer or a Bari of your caliber even knows what a robot is? "JCE suppose to know that eliminating non Dinka from Politic will course blood shed" Sunday Junup, more blood would come and be shed again, more than what you idiots think. Your so-called JCEs don’t represent every Dinka/Jieng who have grudges with your Riek Machar prophet, Rebecca Nyandeng, Pagan Amuom>>>

        Do you have a better words to describe the innocent people who are in dare need of peace in the country?
        If you don’t have better suggestions please give peace a chance than instigating pure nonsense of no use at this time in your country.

    I will never trust Riek Machar Teny.
    it has been 30 years about Riek Machar and I will never like him anymore. I would rather loved Northern Sudanese than these people in al-Nile regions. The economies is the bad shape because of war. People lost their dearly lives because of positions and millions others continues suffering because of him. What Riek Machar want exactly?
