Khartoum, August 24, 2018 (SSNA) — South Sudan’s peace negotiations will resume next Monday after the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) asked Sudanese foreign minister who is the chief peace negotiator to reschedule the talks.

Discussions on outstanding issues were initially slated for this Sunday. However, Sudan’s ministry of foreign affairs disclosed that the rescheduling of the talks was influenced in part by an Islamic holiday, Eid al-Adha.

In a statement seen by the South Sudan News Agency (SSNA), the incumbent government, Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-In Opposition (SPLM-IO), Former Detainees (FDs), and other political parties said they commit to revitalizing the August 2015 peace deal and that they want South Sudan to be peaceful and prosperous.
