Speaking to reporters before to chair a videoconference session of talks between the transitional government and the Sudanese Revolutionary Front (SRF) Dhieu Matouk the deputy chief mediator applauded the adoption of the two resolutions by the Security Council saying they focus on achieving peace and stability in Sudan.
” In particular, the mediation welcomes the acknowledgement of the Government of South Sudan role to mediate the Sudanese conflict,” he further said.
Matouk also echoed the call by the UN Security Council to the holdout groups that refused to take part in the peace process to join the Juba mediated talks.
“The conflict in Sudan is political in nature and therefore requires an inclusive political process where one can be given space to express the grievances and amicably forge a way forward,” he added.
South Sudanese President Salva Kiir since several years proposed to mediate the talks for peace in Sudan saying bringing peace in Sudan means peace in his country also.
Further, he said his relations with the armed groups in Sudan would help to convince them to make the needed concessions for peace in Sudan.
