There is need for an inclusive cantonment geared towards quick and sustained resolution of the conflicts in the country, the Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission has said.

In a statement, JMEC Deputy Chairman, Augostino Njoroge, said inclusivity means that all parties are to join the cantonment and the disarmament, demobilization, and reintegration process.

“Cantonment of forces in not an easy task. We have many challenges ahead to ensure that cantonment is a success and moves the peace process forward in the coming months,” Mr Njoroge said.

“The cantonment will require the combined efforts of the Transitional Government of National Unity, regional and international partners.”

He was speaking during the second workshop of the Joint Military Ceasefire Commission in Juba on Monday.

The workshop was attended by the Minister of Cabinet Affairs, Martin Elia Lomuro and Defense Minister, Kuol Manyang Juuk among others.

According to the Peace Agreement, forces of the SPLA In Opposition are required to assemble in the cantonment areas.
