Government appeals for deadline extension beyond August 17

ADDIS ABABA – South Sudan Government’s delegation to the peace talks in Addis Ababa have asked for further extension of deadline beyond the proposed August 17, Upper Nile Times was told.

The regime’s negotiators cited the bulkness of the document for the extension saying a lot of articles need serious deliberation and discussion.

“We cannot possibly make compromises within this short period of time because the document need careful study and amendments. So we are asking for extension of the deadline to a date where it can be possible for us to sign it based on compromises reached” – A government delegate told reporters in Addis.

SPLMIO rejects deadline extension

The SPLM in Opposition delegation however strongly rejected the move saying too many chances of peace signing were wasted already and therefore the current dateline is enough to strike a peace deal.

“To us, the big task is already been done and more compromises were made already so the August 17 is within the right time to sign the final peace” – SPLMIO negotiators said.
