South Sudan Rebels Agree to Sign Minutes on Permanent Cease-fire

The Sudan People’s Liberation Movement rebels on Monday signed “minutes of the permanent cease-fire and transitional security arrangements,” Chairwoman of the Commission of the African Union Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma said in a statement on the organization’s website.

The government of South Sudan and ruling party leaders had already signed the minutes on Sept. 18, according to the statement.

Yesterday South Sudan’s warring parties agreed to resume discussions on the demilitarization of the capital, Juba, for a proposed power-sharing period that seeks to end almost two years of conflict.
