In a statement to SUNA, the Vice President of South Sudan Government, Riek Machar, said that the SPLM leadership will provide its representatives for the negotiations with directives that will help them contribute to restoration of mutual confidence and surpassing the difficulties which could confront the negotiation process.

Meanwhile, He said that the First Vice - President of the Republic and President of South Sudan Government, Lt. Gen. Salva Kiir Mayardit, currently in Juba, will return to Khartoum on Wednesday after intensive meetings and consultation aimed to prepare lists on members of the Council of South Sudan and the legislative councils of the southern states.
