Germany Urges South Sudan to Include Opposition in National Dialogue

JUBA Ė The German Foreign Minister on Thursday urged South Sudan to include all opposition factions in the national dialogue.

Sigmar Gabriel made these remarks after meeting South Sudanís president, Salva Kiir, during his visit to the African nation.

Gabriel said he wanted to ensure the participation of all factions in the national dialogue and to encourage them to take part in the process.

The German minister highlighted that they had discussed Kiirís intentions to release the prisoners accused of backing the rebels, which he considered was an important move for the political reconciliation process.

Kiir recently renewed his call for rebel forces to join the national dialogue announced in May, marking the sixth anniversary South Sudanís independence.

Opposition leader Riek Machar said on June 25 that ending the war was his priority before joining the national dialogue.

On May 22, Kiir announced a unilateral ceasefire in South Sudan, where the conflict began in Dec. 2013 after Kiir, of Dinka tribe, accused his vice president Machar, of the Nuer tribe, of an attempted coup.

Although both parties signed a peace agreement in Aug. 2015, the conflict resumed in July 2016 and has caused thousands of deaths, millions of displaced people and a famine in several regions of the country.
