The meeting mainly discussed the state of the signed revitalised peace agreement, with emphasis on the security arrangements.

It further added, “The meeting also discussed issues to do with establishment of the Hybrid Court for South Sudan and that the cabinet in a resolution has directed the minister of Justice to lead a technical committee to engage with the AU [African Union] to establish the Hybrid Court for South Sudan”.

During the meeting, the First Vice President also appealed to the urged the international community to support the peace agreement by providing non-lethal items like food and medicines.

He described the security arrangement as the backbone of the September 2018 peace agreement.

Meanwhile, the outgoing German ambassador described the meeting as “fruitful”.

In September 2018, South Sudan’s warring factions signed a revitalised peace agreement to end the country’s civil war. The peace accord stipulates that there shall be a transitional government formed after eight months of the pre-transitional period.
