Author : Junior Ali | Published: Wednesday, September 7, 2016

The Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Committee has officially resumed its operations in Juba about two months since it evacuated from the country following the violence in the capital in July.

The JMEC says it was operating temporarily in Addis Ababa.

In a statement, the Chairperson, Festus Mogae, said he plans to meet all major stakeholders in the peace process, including the leadership of the Transitional Government of National Unity at the highest level.

Mr Mogae expressed appreciation to the delegation from the UN Security Council for the visit to the country.

He says he briefed the delegation on his diplomatic engagements with the IGAD Chairman, Hailemariam Desalegn, and President Salva Kiir Mayardit, President of South Sudan.

Mr Mogae says he also briefed the delegation on meetings with South Sudanese TGoNU cabinet Ministers, South Sudanese representatives to JMEC, and representatives of the International Community.

These include the UNMISS, TROIKA, EU and IGAD ambassadors.
