Government of Juba: Parties that have not signed the Agreement (not important)
Khartoum, July 27, 2018 – South Sudan’s opposition government and media spokesman Michael Makui said opposition groups in southern Sudan, which declined to sign the peace accord on Wednesday, were “unimportant” and “have no effect.”
The group of former political detainees and the opposition alliance in southern Sudan, with the exception of General Peter Gedit Yak’s group, has refused to sign the agreement, saying some outstanding issues need more work. “We will continue without them if they do not join, and we will go ahead with the implementation of the agreement,” Makui said.
“Any person who has declined to sign is not necessary and must join,” Michael McCoy told reporters in Khartoum on Wednesday after his group signed a peace agreement with the SPLM in the armed opposition.
He added that his government would push the peace agreement forward with the main opposition group led by former Vice Pres.
