“I would like to take this opportunity to thank both Presidents for the leadership demonstrated by them in achieving this milestone. We applaud the leaders and express our heartfelt gratitude to all role-players and mediators who worked tirelessly through difficult times to achieve these agreements,” Zuma said in a statement.

In congratulating both leaders on the signing of the agreements in Addis Ababa, Zuma emphasized the need to seize the momentum created in reaching this positive outcome by employing the same resolve in negotiating and finalising the other outstanding matters.

“We are confident that Sudan and South Sudan through the implementation of these agreements will introduce a new era of increased cooperation and mutually beneficial coexistence of the peoples of Sudan and South Sudan,” he said.

This landmark agreement bears testament that both Sudan and South Sudan choose peace and are well capable of resolving their challenges.

The close collaboration between the African Union Peace and Security Council (AUPSC) and the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has resulted positively in this instant and set the tone for future collaboration.
