October 21, 2019 (JUBA) – The Troika, comprising of the United States, Britain and Norway on Monday urged the government of South Sudan and the opposition to meet a November 12 deadline set in May for the formation of a transitional government of national unity.

“The Troika will continue to stand with and support the people of South Sudan, who want and deserve peace and a government that protects its people,” partly reads the Troika’s statement.

According to the Troika, with the November 12, 2019 deadline, extended from May looming, much more needs to be done urgently to ensure the success of the transitional national unity government.

“Progress would help maintain the confidence of all the parties and the international community, demonstrate that the parties have the political will to work together during the transitional period, and provide the opportunity for the international community to engage productively with an inclusive, new government,” said the Troika.

“We encourage the parties, especially the current government, to take concrete steps to build trust through enhanced cooperation,” it added.

Welcoming the recent visit of the United Nations Security Council delegation to South Sudan, the Troika vowed to maintain the confidence of all the parties and the international community and demonstrate that the parties have the political will to work together during the transitional period.

South Sudan descended into war in December 2013 when President Salva Kiir accused the country’s former Vice President Riek Machar of plotting a coup.

In September 2018, the rival factions involved in the conflict signed a peace deal to end the conflict that has killed tens of thousands of people and displaced over 2 million people in the country.

In May, the two sides agreed to form a unity government in six months and in September said that they will establish a transitional government by November 12 as part of the deal.

    The troika needed to be quite knowing that you can’t form a government without a key provisions in the peace deal is not being implemented!! For instance, Number of States and Unify National Army..

      Malakal County,
      Troika, UN, IGAD or JCE can stuff this RTGoNU into their shitholes. The deal is clear: Fix the number of states and their boundaries, reform the security sector to be all inclusive. The jienges have divided the $100m for funding the R-ARCSS among themselves and think things will work by God´s grace. NO. Come Nov 12, nothing will happen. All Junubin must arm themselves.

        Malakal County & Jubaone,

        These mouth-piece body call TRIOKA must be nincompoop enough, where were they in 2016 Dog fight? they have never said anything when Dr Machar was cashed out from Juba.

        To form government without involvement of NAS, Malong Awan and resolving outstanding issues is a nightmare, it will not be form at all.

        I had already clean my AK-47 for the battle, no joke!

          Jubaone and Midiit Mitot,

          It’s very sad seeing Salva Kiir as a president and at the same time, does not care for our suffering populations due to power sharing and putting our belove country peace deal on the gamble line for war opportunities .... Only God forbid and may peace prevail!! Brother Midiit, let’s go for an extensions first and the Ak47 comes as a last resort..

            Malakal county Simon ,

            No extension, November 12 is the deadline to form our unity government. I know rebels want Riek to be a president and this is the only reason they are making up all these lies about security arrangement, numbers of State and all of that. We did try war before, what happened? People are roaming in Khartoum and Addis Ababa.

            I am not a fool to expect anything from a kiirminal let alone a jienge. It’s like wanting a blind, crippled and deaf person showing you the way to go. From nothing comes nothing. If worthless and lazy jienges can’t even feed themselves, how can they feed hardworking Equatorians? NEVER.

        jubaone,

        " The deal is clear": We need rats and monkeys. If you have an army come and stop construction of the high way which going on in Juba and soon will reach Rumbek on his way to Wau. In the middle of the day, we are constructing high way in Equatoria.

          Feed yourselves first. Try using bush paths like baboons. For a highway you need economic relevance which your jienge shithole states don’t have. Over 70% of all jienges like you have run 🏃 away for free "nyamnyam" in Equatoria or East Africa. Maybe a highway is good so that you can easily fuck off to your jiengestans 😁.

      Midit,

      You people are arguing like 5 years old. 32 states is a done deal. People of South Sudan like their states expect rebels. Riek needs to come back to Juba and takes his position, second man in the country.

        Hahahaha these are the typing errors from Mr Quiz.

        Have a look, Troika, AU, and war masterminded call IGAD did not react when Dog fight erupted at J1 in 2016.

        Again what is a grantee that there could be no happen since the ideology from JCE is existing?

        South South, let us be frank if we are real need peace, let us keep self interest a side.

          Midit,

          I said this before and let me repeat it here. IO will not send to Juba huge forces as they wish. We will not accept that, yes, peace is good for all, but it doesn’t mean giving power to Riek. If Riek wants peace, he needs to join the government on November 12, full stop.
