Kampala, July 7, 2018 (SSNA) — South Sudan’s peace negotiations between parties to the conflict will convene in Nairobi on Monday, an IGAD diplomatic source told the South Sudan News Agency (SSNA) on Saturday.

The source who declined to be named because he was not authorized to speak to the media said the recently signed power-sharing and security arrangements deals in Khartoum have been discussed in Kampala today and that further discussions will resume in Kenya on Monday.

“We have discussed the two documents signed in Khartoum today. IGAD and South Sudanese leaders will meet in Nairobi next Monday to further discuss these pacts,” he said.

The official also explained that Khartoum agreements are the ones being discussed and that Kenya is expected to back the pacts for final submission to IGAD’s chairman Ethiopian Prime Minister Dr. Abiy Ahmed.
