Peace talks between the government and the SPLM in Opposition have been postponed to Monday in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa.

The talks were initially scheduled for Friday.

Mediators from the regional body IGAD say the delay has been caused by the extended holidays of the EIdt el-Fitr and the Matyrs’ Day in Juba.

Delegates from both parties are expected to arrive in Addis Ababa on Sunday, according to a statement by the mediators.

It says that political parties, civil society and religious organizations are expected to attend the session.

The agenda will be to finalize and sign the matrix of the Cessation of Hostilities Agreement and the negotiation of the Transitional Government of National Unity.
