October 17, 2018 (KHARTOUM) - The Sudanese President Omer al-Bashir on Wednesday has named Ambassador Jamal El-Shiekh as special envoy for peace in South Sudan.

Speaking to the diplomats at Foreign Ministry headquarters, al-Bashir said South Sudan’s peace would positively impact on Sudan and the region in general, describing it as “significant move towards achieving comprehensive peace in Sudan”.

He pointed out that Foreign Minister El-Dirdeiry Mohamed Ahmed has tackled South Sudan’s peace file with “knowledge and wisdom” which contributed to the signing of the peace deal in the world’s newest nation.

Al-Bashir added that Ambassador Jamal El-Shiekh has been appointed as special envoy for peace in South Sudan to follow up on the implementation of the peace agreement on the ground.

South Sudan became an independent country on 9 July 2011 after decades of war, lengthy negotiations and a referendum to secede from neighbouring Sudan. Two and a half years later, armed conflict broke out between forces loyal to President Salva Kiir and those allied to his then deputy Riek Machar.

However, in August 2015, the two main parties in the conflict agreed a peace deal and later formed a transitional unity government with President Kiir at the helm and Machar as one of his two deputies.

Renewed again fighting broke out in July 2016 with heavy clashes in the capital Juba and other parts of the nation forcing Machar to flee.

On September 12, the South Sudanese rebel leader signed in Khartoum a peace agreement with the government aimed at ending a five-year civil war, which killed tens of thousands of people and displaced millions.

    “significant move towards achieving comprehensive peace in Sudan”. I doubt that this is going to be ’a comprehensive peace for the whole South Sudan & North Sudan’. But for South Sudan only. But yes, we have some our myopic politicians here in South Sudan who don’t know anything past their bellies, villages and their ’inflated egos’ to be South Sudan’s & the South Sudanese leaders at all costs>>>

      no matter how many times & times again, they have been proven to be no ones, but bunch of losers, foreign puppets/stooges & traitors who are full of themselves over everyone else. The kinds of politicians we have here in South Sudan don’t exist elsewhere in the whole world. The criminals have put up our country & our people to be the ’caricature & sconce’ of the world. Now the traitors, losers>>>

And still, they seem not to be very shameful about how our small internal issues have been ’highly magnified by other countries’ than their own internal issues. North Sudan>>>
