A team of Kenyan negotiators will lend their expertise, in conjunction with Sudanese mediators, on ways to handle the latest round of South Sudan peace talks.
Discussions are to revolve around the implementation of the revitalised Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan (ARCSS), according to a statement released by regional bloc, the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD).
This follows a decision taken by the leaders of the East African bloc in Khartoum on August 5 that Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir would continue to facilitate the talks until the revitalized ARCSS is finally signed.
It was also agreed that Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta would support the next phase by deploying a team of experts to support the finalisation of the process.
The talks moved to Nairobi following agreement on outstanding issues related to security arrangements and governance chapters of the revitalised peace agreement.
