The IGAD-led face-to-face round of talks in Khartoum have started in Khartoum on 25 June. Two days after, the South Sudanese parties signed a framework agreement, providing to implement the permanent ceasefire even before to settle the outstanding issues in the security arrangements.

The Government Spokesperson Michael Makuei Lueth told the official SSBC TV they met on Wednesday with the Sudanese mediation team headed by the Defence Minister Awad Ibn Ouf to discuss a draft agreement on the security arrangements

"After lengthy discussions, it was agreed that by tomorrow we will be getting the final draft and hopefully this final draft will be the document that we will sign," the minister said.

Lueth further said if things as it was agreed then they sign the final draft agreement the mediators will submit on Thursday.

"If things remain the same then definitely we will be signing the final document on the permanent ceasefire and transitional security arrangement," he said.

Khartoum talks on the security arrangements deal with four outstanding issues including the determination of demilitarized areas; modalities of the cantonment, a timeframe for the unification of forces and the number of representatives of every party in the Joint Transitional Security Committee.

The SPLA-IO made a major concession during the previous phases of the peace revitalization process as it accepted to amend the peace agreement and integrate the armies before the end of the transitional period.

Minister Makuei said once this agreement on the security arrangements is signed the will move immediately to discuss the outstanding issues in the power-sharing or governance chapter.

On the governance, the parties have to settle their differences on the number of states in South Sudan, the size and composition of the Legislature and the responsibility sharing ratio in the executive and the states.

Once all these issues have been settled, the IGAD leaders have to persuade President Salva Kiir to accept the participation of SPLM-IO leader Riek Machar in the transitional government.

The Khartoum round of peace talks will be concluded on 8 July as the parties have to move to Nairobi to resume discussions there.

The signatories of the Khartoum Declaration of Agreement pledged to settle all the pending issues in the security arrangements and governance in Khartoum.

      Any attempts to hurriedly integrate Riak’s army without those aligned to SSOA is foolish. First, we need parallel armies which will be disarmed, demobilized and restructured based on ethnicity. Any army that is disproportionately bloated with jienges or Nuers is unacceptable. They can keep to themselves. Equatorians will be in charge of Equatoria, Nuers and jienges also for their own security.

We let them in and so we have now awoken to a terrible reality. Equatorians are not part of this Riak-Kiirminal arrangements and so we will continue to fight. Jienges in Equatoria are legitimate targets. P

          Equatorians will always be irrelevant in South Sudan conflicts and consequence peaceful negotiations, why? because they have never succeeded in forming an Equatorian-identified solidarity movement. They have been divided between government and the rebel group IO, any social or political movement gains legitimacy through its elites not through its foot soldiers.

I’m very much convinced that neither you jienges nor Nuers have ever learned from history.This bogus Khartoum agreement is just another step of interests of those maneuvering it.As Jubaone rightfully said it,Equatorians must get the message into their f**cking brains,that is,its about..

                I like your uncompromising stand towards these scoundrels. These jienges need us badly than we need them. They add NO value to us and so Equatorians must believe in themselves. Just imagine, we were on our own, how fast we could have developed. Now we have to even think for these idiots, try to civilize them. It’s costing us efforts and time. SS is just a shithole without Equatoria

          Just take it as plain and straight forward: Any integration that seeks to entrench the status quo of: Jienge-Nuer split is stupid. You can do it in your luaks. No single ethnic group shall in any organized forces, whether in the hierarchy or composition be allowed to exceed the 20% threshold. Army of jienges-Nuers is simply chaos and anarchy. Do that in your luaks. Equatoria is OUT.

          Just as your name suggests, a real luakjieng, except that you at least can use a computer and perhaps wear some underpants. Anyway, I’m not bothered with your jienge rhetoric cuz it’s simply stupid. Jienges have peace in their jiengestans yet their regions are not different from shitholes. Only when Equatoria is at peace, can there be peace and development in SS.

            I’ve often stated, that jienges have deserted their villages and only the weak, frail and dying have been left behind. There’s NO development at all and most youth have resorted to cattle rustling, eloping young nyanjienges and killings as free time sports. Jiengelands are simply "grazing areas" for cows. Economically worthless, strategically irrelevant and in human capital just a waste.

    Integrate Riek’s UP force to South Sudan army as soon as possible. This is very good step. As for persuading Kiir to accept Riek’s participation in transition government, I leave that to Mr. President to decide. I see peace coming to South Sudan this year.

      Please stop this. Cowardly thinking that international community will handover power to rebels by using sanctions. Individual sanctions will never change anything. Re rebels submitted to IGAD 10 or more proposals, no single single one was consider, do you know why? They are weak and disorganized

          You were behind from the news dude, the unification of the news army will be based on the merits. Those who were committed to human rights violations, would not set their or smell the new army. The new army will be first separately trained by Sudan and Uganda. Those of Salva Kiir will be trained by Uganda and Machar sector will be trained by Sudan. And unify after their their training

            Don’t waste your time arguing with jienges. They establish facts on the ground and can’t argue neither reason. If you’re an Equatorian, better start thinking along the lines that enables "our security in our hands". In security matters, trust only Equatorians. We can develop on our own and don’t need any of them whatsoever. They add no value to us except anarchy and chaos.

              It’s not about numbers only, but resolve to fight for a real cause. As of now, Juba us filled up with jienge nyors, remnants of fugitive Malong who are turned street beggars and night thugs/bandits. Once used to free food and state money during Malong’s time, they are now useless and unwanted garbage. Nowhere to go, they have become just hungry criminals. Come to Juba and see them.

    IGAD, Mediators Teams, AU, UN, and the rest of the world body community. I am wondering why the above mentions fails to come up with big punishment on rebels SPLA IO? The SPLA IO led by Riek Machar made attacked on civilians of Maban county of Northern Upper Nile State. 25 people include 3 Ethiopians and 2 Sudanese national were kills and 44 people wounded. Why UN kept quiet & no sanction on Riek?

    I am very concern about the way African leaders imposed the peace that, wouldn’t work for South Sudanese people.I thought Riek Machar wouldn’t seek VP, position because there is already Nuer like gen, Taban Deng Gai yet, the IGAD still telling Juba’s gov, to make reinstatement and this could cause Nuers clan conflict, because the supports of gen, Taban Deng would sees Adok or Leer people as enemy.

    The AU, IGAD leaders must withdraw the Idea of making Riek Machar reinstatement if they real want to bring peace in South Sudan. Yes, the Representatives of SPLM IO should be accepted and assistant president as well as the States power sharing but the reinstatement of former vice president mean more conflicts will repeated without question, because this is the man who goes and come back like that.

        Peace is not a jienge handout just to be given to the rest, it is mutually negotiated on equal terms. SS is not like a cow 🐮 to be handed over to sbd. Just pack your jienge stuff and head on to your stinking luaks. The only thing from the KDA is the 3 regions which must have federal status. Jienges like you may require permits from us to idle or squat in Juba.
