JEMEC: welcomes peace agreement between government and opposition groups
The Monitoring and Evaluation Commission for the South Sudan Conflict Resolution Agreement (JEMIC) welcomed the power-sharing agreement and security arrangements signed between the government and opposition groups in the Sudanese capital Khartoum under the auspices of President Omar al-Bashir.
In 2015, following the signing of the agreement between the government and the armed opposition led by Riek Machar, JEMEC was established to oversee the implementation of the agreement.
The signing of a peace agreement in Khartoum strengthens efforts to revive a 2015 agreement and will lead to a comprehensive peace that can restore security and stability and the process of national reconciliation and restore hope to the people of southern Sudan, JEMIC said in a statement Tuesday.
( JEMIC ) appealed to the parties to work with the political will to continue to complete the activation of the remaining chapters of the peace agreement with subsequent amendments. The statement also confirmed UNHCR’s readiness to work with all parties to ensure the full implementation of the Peace Agreement.
The Commission commended the role of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), the African Union, the United Nations, the international community and peace partners for their continued efforts to ensure lasting peace in Southern Sudan.
