JMEC, stakeholders discuss security modalities for Juba

Author : | Published: Wednesday, September 21, 2016

The JMEC has today launched a two-day workshop for stakeholders in the peace agreement to plan and establish security modalities for Juba in line with UN Security Council resolution to deploy foreign forces in the country.

It says discussions at the workshop will also aim at rebuilding peace in Juba and other communities affected by war in the country.

This is the first meeting of the Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission in Juba since government and IO soldiers clashed in July.

In a statement, the JMEC Chairperson, Festus Mogae said discussions will revolve around the UN resolution 2304 on the deployment of a protection force of 4,000 personnel.

He says the stakeholders will review proposals and make recommendation of the realignment of the Transitional Security Arrangements for Juba.

This should include introducing how deployment of the 4000 strong foreign protection force will affect readjustment of the Transitional Security arrangement in Juba.

They will review proposals and make recommendations for cantonment and unification of forces, including the review of the status of the Transitional Security Arrangement Mechanisms.

The mechanisms include the Joint Military Ceasefire Commission, the Joint Operation Center, Joint Integrated police, cantonment of the forces, and the Strategic Defence and Security Review.

Mr Mogae says the workshop will also come up with revised proposals to ensure that the mechanisms operate efficiently.

The workshop is being attended by delegates for the Transitional Government, delegates from the SPLM in opposition, representatives from the Former detainees and members of the international community, among others.
