Author : | Published: Monday, October 27, 2014

The phase one of the seventh round of South Sudan Peace talks which was supposed to start today has been adjourned for tomorrow.

Eye Radio’s Correspondent in Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, Alhadi Awari, says most of the delegates have arrived in the city, but the real talks have not yet started.

He says the IGAD meditation team has set four agenda for consultation with chief negotiators of the two warring parties.

The agenda include Power, sharing, Security framework, Governance and Legislature during the transitional period.

“The IGAD mediators are still doing consultations with the stakeholders regarding the peace talks, and they are going to discuss with the committees called “1+1, which include only the chief negotiators of the two warring parties. The agenda is power sharing with the executive on the top during the transitional period, plus the security framework, governance and legislature.” Our reporter Alhadi Hawari said from Addis Ababa.

“All these are to be discussed as part of the interim period. If the two negotiating teams agree on these issues, the talks will start tomorrow. And if they disagree, then IGAD will present again the agenda to the two leaders or to the two principals of the two warring parties and this will be during the IGAD summit of the heads of state, which will take place here in Addis Ababa this week.” He added.

That was Eye Radio’s Alhadi Awari reporting on the peace talks from the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa.
