AU urges S. Sudan parties to expedite peace implementation
April 17, 2020 (Nyamilepedia) — The African Union has urged South Sudan’s parties to the revitalized peace agreement to expedite the implementation of the 2018 peace deal.
This comes after the parties hit deadlock in talks of allocation of the state governors which is threatening to derail the peace implementation.
In a communique issued on Friday, the AU said it want “all Parties to the Revitalized Agreement to fully adhere to the timelines of implementation of all transitional tasks, particularly the establishment and operationalization of the expanded Transitional National Legislative Assembly (TNLA), allocation and appointment of Governors of the States and elaboration of the Transitional Constitution as necessary preconditions for a successful transition leading to organization of credible national elections.”
The continental body “further urges all parties to facilitate the establishment of public authorities; unification, training and integration of the various armed groups to enable deployment of the Unified Forces, among others; and urges the R-TGoNU to mobilize and provide necessary resources for these processes.”
