A delegation headed by President Salva Kiir left for Ethiopia on Wednesday morning to discuss the government’s position on the recent IGAD bridging proposal.

According to Press Secretary Ateny Wek Ateny, President Kiir is being accompanied by the chief negotiator and senior adviser, Nhial Deng Nhial and a number of ministers.

This will be his first visit to Addis Ababa since Prime Minister Dr Abiy Ahmed took office.

“This is the first time the two leaders will be coming together in a meeting in which President Salva Kiir will be highlighting and giving the Prime Minister of Ethiopia the government of South Sudan’s view on the recent IGAD document,” said Ateny Wek.
