In a statement released after the meeting from Addis Ababa, the Ethiopian government which chairs the IGAD said the meeting agreed on a "draft matrix prepared by the IGAD Special Envoy for S Sudan, Amb Ismail Wais on the way forward in dealing with remaining items".

It further said the IGAD Council agreed that the "the mediation effort will continue in Khartoum till the 19th of August. 2018", but it didn’t give a date for the signing ceremony or a meeting of the IGAD leaders.

In addition to the IGAD members, the meeting was attended by the AU, the UN, EU, IPF, China and Troika which was represented by the British Minister of State for Africa Harriet Baldwin who is visiting Sudan nowadays.

    IGAD is getting confused by its own intricacies in the HLRF; the body languages of Kiir and Machars say more than what the document they appended their signatures on....! Trioka just tried to warn of the perilous future because of the grand deception aka the KPA.

    Both Museveni and Al Bashir need personal securities offered by life presidency. Bashir has finally gotten it and Kiir is proped as the life "president" of South Sudan - if it ever takes off, at the tail end of the 3 years extended to Kiir, there will be another bloodbath if the current shaky arrangement is stuck to. This is what Troika is saying.....!
