The meeting dealt with the progress achieved in the negotiations to revitalize the agreement for peace in the Republic of South Sudan, which was initialled by the parties, said the official news agency SUNA.

Also "they discussed the arrangement for a summit of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) to sign the final agreement," further said the report.

Al-Bashir and Museveni who are the guarantors of the Khartoum Round of talks need to persuade President Salva Kiir to accept a proposal they mediators made to settle the disagreement on the number of states.

His delegation refused a proposal providing ask the South Sudanese to choose between the 10 and the 32 states after reviewing the tribal borders.

The opposition groups said they would not sign the final document of the revitalized peace agreement if Juba continues seeking to maintain the 32 states. They, also, want the permanent constitution to be made by the national constitutional conference and rectify the quorum of government and parliament meetings.

The IGAD foreign ministers have to meet before the meetings of the United Nations General Assembly. They are expected to submit a series of recommendations for the IGAD leaders who will meet in Khartoum.

No date has been yet determined for the IGAD meetings.

Al-Bashir further briefed Museveni on the recent Russian-Sudanese initiative for peace in and reconciliation in the Central African Republic.

        My lowly informed South Sudanese fools, *Mr. Winston Churchill* of ’devil infested Island of England’ even proposed that Uganda was going to be used as their country as their evil juus (their so-called israelis in) to be resettled in Uganda after their reckless WW2.

          Fellows, Uganda is a so-called commonwealth Country, and so do many other countries like Kenya, South Africa, Malawi, Zambia, South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana & other countries. But right here in South Sudan, we are not part of the so-called ANGLO-AMERICA, let alone their so-called being part of their so-called ANGLO-AMRERICAN empire, never has & will never ever be>>>

    Try to sober up. You are wasting your time by producing non sense to this forum. You people can blame nobody except yourselves for the blunder you have caused to the country. You had ample time and monetary resources to build a cohesive and prosperous nation but because of your greed you let down citizen with your greed and tribalism. Now you have to be booted out of this mess.

    It is shameful that the independence of South Sudan is going to be guarded and guided by Ugand and Sudan. Sad indeed. JCE has done the country the worst sin mankind has ever made to a fellow human being. There we are in the hands of Dinka people.

      Guided by Al-Bashir and M7 are not gonna be enough. This country needs temporarily division among three countries and re-united after 3-4 generations.

        For the record, I love your proposal. The South Souths of this world would like to sound relevant but what Games alluded is already at play. Museveni is in full control of the southern gates of South Sudan and Al Bashir is already protecting the oil fields to the north. Ethiopia or Kenya have their eyes on the eastern parts.

            When someone is full with fatty free food and start talking nonsense,lazy people who use to free things are always obese and smell shit. You need to shut up your dirty mouth and leave hard working people to talk about a country. You, enjoy free food and then hit your computer, that’s all.

        Tell me where the executive, autocratic, despotic president of South Sudan who rules with decrees come from? And from which ethnic extract from South Sudanese does he belong? He knew we had Abyei, Hufrat al Nahas, Kafia Kingi, Panthou and the rest were there to wrestled away from Jallaba but what did he do?

          Now where is the country heading to? It is not enough for you to say Dinka have played a big role to drive the country to this political depth when you control every arm of the government with stooges like Makana, Wani Igga and the rest. You principally caused this mess due to your greed, diplomatic and political myopia.

            jur_likang_a_ likan’g,

            Iam so happy you are pointing out Equatoria sons who are ruling South Sudan now, Makana,speaker of parliament, Wani, vice president, Ellia , prime minister. This is all government controlled by Equatoria sons. Do you want the entire tribes of Eqautoria to be appointed ministers for you believe that South Sudan is under control of Eqautorians?

          jur_likang_a_ likan’g,

          Government has three branches.
          1- Executive
          2- Judiciary
          3- Legislative
          Legislative makes rules and pass them to Executive to implement them. Judiciary watches executive and legislative to make sure that they are following the rules, so today in South Sudan Equatoria son is on the top of the body which makes the rules in South Sudan. Kiir does not make rules.

            That’s really on paper. Anthony Lino Makana is just as brainless as he is loud. In South Sudan, the buck stops with Kiir.

    It beats my understnding that president Bashir, a war criminal, one who muscled freedom of information and continued killings in Darfur and Blue Nile with his counterpart president Museveni a real dictator in Uganda are the one running the show for the peace in South Sudan. What a joke and what kind of peace is it going to be? We are in yet for another Sunami......Lol!!!
