Speaking to the press on Friday, the state government spokesperson Clement Chichim said the move will enable the humanitarian agencies to easily gain access to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the country including those in EES. 

He added that the agreement is vital and will serve as one of the first steps towards building a durable tranquility.

The US, African Union, UN Security Council and the general international community all welcomed the agreement and urged all South Sudanese leaders to honour their commitments to the people of South Sudan by working quickly and earnestly toward an inclusive and comprehensive political dialogue.

In a press statement immediately issued following the signing agreement on Thursday, the US President Barack Obama said: “The full participation of political detainees currently being held by the Government of South Sudan will be critical to those discussions, and we will continue to work to expedite their release.”

“I am grateful for the constructive role played by the Intergovernmental Authority on Development and our partners in the region to advance these efforts.”

The over one month hostility has claimed more than a thousand lives, destroyed property worth millions of pounds and displaced half a million people within and without the world’s newest nation.
