The presidential advisor on security affairs, Tut Kew Gatluak said Kiir engaged all the leaders of the Sudanese Liberation Movements in the effort to resolves conflict in the Sudan through peaceful means.

"President Kiir invited them to Juba to sit together and discuss after they agreed to unite in order to bring peace in Sudan and also to engage the Sudanese government on peaceful settlement of their grievances," he told reporters in the capital, Juba on Wednesday.

Gatluak, also the presidential envoy to Sudan peace mediation, said the South Sudan leader urged opposition groups to seek peaceful settlement of their outstanding differences with the government.

The presidential advisor said Kiir invited the various opposition groups, under the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF) to come to Juba to unify the common vision to negotiate with the Transitional Sovereign Government in Sudan for a comprehensive peace in the country.

The oppositions group, Gatluak further said, assured the president on their readiness to implement the outcome of the meeting in Juba.

The leader of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army-North (SPLM/A-N), Malik Agar, on his part, said unity among the various rebel groups is crucial to securing comprehensive peace in Sudan.

"When we don’t unite, we cannot achieve peace in Sudan. The first thing is to unite and then we can discuss our problems with government,” he said.

Last month, Sudan’s ruling generals and protest leaders signed a constitutional declaration, paving the way for a transition to civilian rule after over seven months of demonstrations and violence.

Under the agreement, signed in the capital Khartoum, a joint civilian-military ruling body will oversee the formation of a civilian government and parliament to govern for a three-year transition period.

The declaration was the result of fraught negotiations between the leaders of mass protests, which erupted in December against the three-decade rule of al-Bashir and the generals who ousted him in April.

    A Useful Idiot talking indeed...!

    The issue of peace in South Sudan is NOT about the politicians, Kiir included but about the PEOPLE out of power, out in there trying to make their living out of what mother South Sudan can give them. Kiir, Machar and their hordes of politicians are just miscreants.

    Now some long-snouted freaky fellows will say otherwise...!

      "The issue of peace in South Sudan is NOT about the politicians, Kiir included but about the PEOPLE out of power, out in there trying to make their living out of what mother South Sudan can give them."

      This is real monkey talking. When you are out of power and you want to get in to get power is called politic, but people of Karoyoo will not understand that.

        South South the clueless snouty fellow,

        So Kiir should bear the pressure of his [mis]leadership silently - by continuing to fight as calling for politicians to embrace peace is not about to pay off...!

        An alliance is already being formed to fight his misrule rattan than embracing his feace - you don’t just embrace feace but WORK for it through HAVING political will. KIIR lacks this!

        This kiirminal is like that naked luakjieng who is telling another naked Darfurian to put on clothes when he himself hss none. Dress up yourself first, then tell others to dress up. Simple biblical theology and commonsense. The jienge kaffir is naturally a dummy.

          That’s it - he should pluck that huge log out of his eyes before he talks of the specks. The book of Matthew 7:5 in the Bible of the Christians, the faith Kiir PRETENTS to profess says so....

          Kiir better resort to professing Nhialic or Dengdit - he shouldn’t be allowed to continue desecrating the Catholic church...!

          Remember words are patterns of expressing feelings where reactions/responses are expected, so if you direct your nuisance to wrong people, your expressions will have no satisfactory reactions/responses and you will end up repeating the same thing again and again.

          Let Kiir start engaging with the likes of Xi Jinping, Vladimir Putin et al while Hamdok is already enaging with Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron - these types of engements will SOON show which of the two Sudan is headed to development and progress and the other destined to the doom of the IRON CURTAIN...!

              You need to remember one thing, not everybody who detested nuisance is a sycophant as stated it or from jienge who most of you are sick of. There South Sudanese who are tired of insecurity instigated by idiots who make their living through instability like you.

I have fought alongside these folks for years during those liberation days, but I had not seen or found any quality to justify your adjective.

                You may rename me to sooth your anger, but it will not change from who I am. I know some who were actively vacationing for war since July 23. 2013, but they are now peace advocates. a living example is Midiit(Big) now Midiit mitot (Big small).

            I dont know how old you are and in which battles you participated in. Tell us by which khatiba, which cdr, which frontlines, your comrades in arms and which year b4 you start bullshitting. It’s the latecomers, tea-sellers and street thugs that have hijacked our true liberation struggles and made it a tribal thing. Now we must treat these kuffar like jellaba.

                Unlike you who claim to be true liberator, when you are just a tribal loyalist and ideologue who blindly perceived other ethnic communities as their enemies, a practice of 19th century.
                I wonder of those types of liberators who frequently betray their own people by collaborating with their enemies whom they intend to liberate their people from.
