Troika Special Envoys meet SSOMA Leadership Council


SOMMA leadership council members (ST photo)May 30, 2021 (NAIROBI) – The Leadership Council of South Sudan Opposition Movements Alliance (SSOMA) virtually met on Friday with Troika special envoys to Sudan and South Sudan to discuss issues of peace and security in South Sudan.

SSOMA, in a statement on Sunday, described the meeting as “candid” and “constructive”.

“The meeting discussed the current impasse in the Rome Peace Process under the auspices of the Community of SANT’EGIDIO,” partly reads the statement extended to the Sudan Tribune.

It added, “SSOMA-LC extensively briefed the TROIKA envoys on issues agreed and on the points of divergence with the government regarding negotiations on the Declaration of Principles (DoP)”.

While meeting the Special Envoys, SSOMA said it also affirmed its unwavering commitment to achieving lasting and durable peace through the meditation of the Community of SANT’EGIDIO.

The opposition movement’s leadership council also urged the Troika to continue playing an active role in bridging the gaps between the government and SSOMA in order for the ongoing Rome initiative under auspices of the Community of SANT’EGIDIO to be successful.

Meanwhile, the TROIKA envoys urged SSOMA and the government of South Sudan to stop violence and allow unhindered humanitarian access to civilians in dire need of assistance.

They further called upon the parties to resume talks as soon as possible. The SSOMA-LC expressed to the TROIKA envoys concerns over the security and movement of its members, in the neighbouring countries of South Sudan, who will participate in future peace talks.

Members of SSOMA include Real Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (R-SPLM), National Salvation Front (NAS), South Sudan United Front (SSUF), United Democratic Revolutionary Movement/Army (UNDRM/A), National Democratic Movement-PF (NDM-PF) and Sudan National Movement for Change (SSNMC).
