The Secretary-General congratulated South Sudan on the considerable progress made in the peace talks and the political goodwill demonstrated by all parties culminating in the signing of the final revitalized Peace Agreement on 12 September 2018.

Guterres "encouraged the Government to undertake confidence and trust-building measures amongst the parties to help ensure the smooth implementation of the Agreement," said UN spokesperson in a statement released after the meeting.

In a recent briefing on South Sudan, Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Jean-Pierre Lacroix, Special Envoy for Sudan and South Sudan Nicholas Haysom called for the international support to the IGAD-brokered peace agreement.

    Nus jellaba and nyagat Taban
    I thought you and the Kiirminal had "a good and harmonious working relationship" and by now all items of ARCISS 2015 implemented after you treacherously betrayed Riak. So what implementation loser? What is different this time? Same people, same place, same prevailing conditions. Nothing will change. Same shit 💩.

    How can the butcher of 2015 ARCISS advocate for its implantation? Are we taken for a ride for misinformation and lies? No we are not ready to support that assumption.
