The CTSAMVM Deputy Chairman, Major General, Tariq Abdel Karim called on the parties to seize the signing of the peace deal and to opportunity and work together to silence the guns in South Sudan.

Abdel Karim alluded to the recent workshop the mechanism organised for the warring parties to discuss various issues including the disengagement of forces and the security arrangements for cities.

"I can report that much progress has been made however there is still a lot of work to do to normalise the situation and ensure refugees and displaced civilians can return to a safe environment," he said.

Also, he welcomed the new women and youth representatives saying an inclusive CTSAMVM forum is better able to address the work of the mechanism and to move the peace process forward.
