Author : | Published: Wednesday, February 4, 2015

UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon says it is discouraging that President Salva Kiir and Dr Riek Machar could not reach a comprehensive peace agreement in the latest round of talks.

The two leaders recommitted themselves on Monday to reactivate a previous agreement on the Cessation of Hostilities.

Ban Ki Moon says Salva Kiir and Dr Riek Machar should urgently reach a peace agreement and end the war.

“He underscores the urgent need for them to agree on a comprehensive and inclusive peace agreement that addresses key institutional reforms, economic governance, reconciliation, and accountability for the crimes committed since the beginning of the conflict in a manner consistent with international standards,” said Stephane Dujarric, UN Spokesperson.

“The Secretary-General emphasizes that no sustainable peace will be found in South Sudan unless its leaders place the interests of the civilian population above their own.”

The two parties are scheduled to resume talks mid this month in Addis Ababa.
