Sudan Accepts Salva Kiir’s Mediation on Two Areas Talks

KHARTOUM  - (Sudan Tribune) The Sudanese government Saturday said it has accepted the offer of South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir Mayardit to facilitate negotiations with the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/North (SPLM-N) to end the armed conflict in the Two Areas.
The Sudanese government also welcomed the mediation undertaken by President Kiir to reunite the two factions of the SPLM-N which is now split into two factions one led by Abdel Aziz al-Hilu and the second by Malik Agar.
Sudan’s Presidential Assistant Faisal Hassan Ibrahim on Friday made a lightning visit Juba where he discussed with Kiir the outcome of the recent meeting between the government and the SPLM-N faction led by Abdel-Aziz al-Hilu in South Africa.
In statements following the meeting, Ibrahim welcomed the efforts of President Kiir saying that peace and stability in the Two Areas are strategic objectives for the Sudanese government.
The presidential assistant renewed the government commitment to engage in simultaneous talks with the rebel group to discuss the political items besides the humanitarian issues and the security arrangements.
"The Government of Sudan emphasized the vision of President Salva Kiir on the need for a single national army to ensure that the South Sudanese experience would not be repeated," he further stressed.
