Perthes is in the South Sudanese capital Juba as he would brief the UN Security Council about the ongoing efforts to achieve peace in Sudan and the democratic transition on 14 May.

He is expected to discuss the peace process with the South Sudanese officials ahead of the resumption of the negotiations between the government and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North of Abdel Aziz al-Hilu on 25 May.

In a tweet posted on Thursday, the UNITAMS head said he had a "Constructive exchange about questions of peace and citizenship in Sudan with Abdel Wahid al-Nur in Juba".

Also, the SLM-AW issued a statement saying that al-Nur briefed Perthes "about the Movement’s vision to achieve a just, comprehensive and sustainable peace in Sudan (...) and the Sudanese Sudanese dialogue initiative inside the country that the Movement would announce soon".

The SLM-AW rejected joining the peace process held in Juba last year between the government, the armed groups in Darfur and the SPLM-N led by Malik Agar.

The holdout group says planning to hold an inclusive conference inside the country.

In a statement issued in Khartoum before his travel to Juba on 4 May, Perthes expressed hope that the imminent talks between the government and the SPLM-N al-Hilu will "encourage all remaining non-signatories to engage in good faith with the Sudanese authorities to achieve a just and comprehensive peace in Sudan".
