Juba, May 27, 2016 (SSNA) — Factions of the ruling Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) today agreed on areas where the armed opposition forces will be station in Equatorial and Bahr el Ghazal regions.
The two rival groups, SPLM-IO and SPLM-IG, today resolved the issue of designated areas for SPLA-IO’s troops at a council of ministers meeting.
The agreement is one of key parts of the August 2015 power-sharing deal.
However, it is not clear when forces of the armed opposition will start deploying to the agreed locations.
The South Sudan News Agency (SSNA) has learned that the issue of 28 states, which has been rejected by the SPLM/A-IO, JMEC, and the United Nations (UN), was not discussed.
