Casablanca (ADV) – South Sudan’s peace monitor on late Tuesday lauded the warring parties for inking the final peace deal in the Sudanese capital of Khartoum and called for commitment in implementation of the agreement.

The Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (JMEC) said in a statement released in Juba that it welcomed the signing of the outstanding issues on governance between parties to the conflict on Sunday.

“This most recent signing strengthens efforts to revitalize the 2015 Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan (ARCSS), and is expected to lead to the achievement of an inclusive, comprehensive peace, restore security, stability and promote national reconciliation in the Republic of South Sudan,” it said.

“Undoubtedly, the signing comes as a ray of hope for the people of South Sudan who have witnessed the devastation of war for far too long,” JMEC added.
