South Sudan representatives come to Rome to discuss ways for peace in the country

Since 2013, South Sudan, the youngest nation in the world has been caught up in a civil war. However, in September 2018 the two opposition leaders, President Salva Kiir, and his former vice-president, Reik Machar signed the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan (R-ARCSS).

Since then both parties have been seeking to implement the Pre-Transitional period agreements to help bring peace and unity to the country.

Recently members representing the different parties of the agreements came to Rome to Sant'Egidio's center. There they have been discussing the extended transitional period agreements in order to meet its deadline on Nov. 12; and to receive the support of the international community.
