President Salva Kiir of South Sudan and head of the country’s main rebel group Riek Machar have signed a final cease fire and power-sharing agreement and hailed a new longed-for era of peace in the country.

Untitled According to a statement by the Foreign Ministry, President Kirr at the occasion, “called on everyone as a leader of South Sudan that this agreement which we have signed today should be the end of the war and the conflict in our country.”

South Sudan’s former vice president and rebel leader Riek Machar said after the signing, “today we celebrate,
not just in South Sudan, but throughout the world.”

South Sudan became independent from Sudan in 2011, but civil war broke out two years later between the government led by Kiir and a rebel movement led by Machar.

Untitled Fuelled by personal and ethnic rivalries, the conflict has killed tens of thousands, displaced an estimated
quarter of South Sudan’s population of 12 million and ruined its economy that heavily relies on crude oil
production.

“An agreement on outstanding issues has been signed and this agreement expresses the commitment of all parties
to a ceasefire,” the foreign minister of neighbouring Sudan, Al-Dirdiri Mohamed said on Sudan state television.

Sudan’s president Omar al-Bashir said on Sunday oil would be pumped from South Sudan’s Wahda region to Sudan
beginning September 1.

Untitled “There will be profit brother Salva … one of our goals is the need to save the economy of South Sudan because
it has reached a level of collapse,” he said on Sudan State TV.

Previous peace agreements held for only a matter of months before fighting resumed, which Kiir has blamed
on foreign influence.

“My government and I know the conflict in South Sudan has resulted in a financial and political burden,”
Kiir said.

“We must accept that the internal war has no meaning and has imposed suffering on us and our families and
has killed hundreds of our young men and women, destroyed our economy, and left us divided.”

Machar said, “there is no option but peace … we have to focus after this stage on implementing the agreement
that if we don’t implement, we will all be failures.”

Untitled On Friday, Kiir said he believed the new peace deal between his government and the main rebel group would
not collapse because it was not forced upon them like previous accords.

He urged dialogue with the UN Security Council on how to secure the region and keep the peace.
