Khartoum, 28th June 2018. President Salva Kiir and Dr Riek Machar reached an agreement on “some points” in peace talks in Khartoum on Tuesday, says Sudanese Foreign Minister.
Al-Dirdiri Mohamed Ahmed says the two leaders agreed to a permanent ceasefire, cantonments for all forces and the deployment of forces by IGAD and the African Union to safeguard the ceasefire, agencies reported.
President Kiir and Dr Machar further agreed to have three capital cities: Juba, Wau and Malakal on temporary basis to host the three proposed vice-presidents, he adds.
The two leaders agreed to allow the Khartoum government to secure the oil fields in South Sudan in coordination with Juba administration.
The agreement says the Sudanese government will also rehabilitate the wells to restore the previous levels of production.
The two leaders also declared to work together again for the third time after their long disagreement.
Sudanese President Omar Bashir on Monday promised to end the war in South Sudan and pave the way for development.
