Khartoum-The national consensus forces have announced sending a high level delegation to the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa to meet with the parties to the conflict in South Sudan and to urge them to engage in serious and honest talks to end the suffering of South Sudan people. They stressed the importance of the cease fire.
Chairman of the leadership office of the National Consensus Forces Faroug Abu-Issa said in a statement to the Citizen that the ongoing violent conflict between the comrades in South Sudan does not serve our people in South Sudan nor the relationship between the two people of the two countries, adding that there is serious damage of this conflict.
