New round of South Sudan peace talks delayed

Women's groups concerned about the ongoing conflict in South Sudan march on a national day of prayers for peace, in Juba, on May 31, 2014A new round of talks on ending South Sudan’s nearly six-month-old civil war have been delayed, mediators said Wednesday. No explanation was given for the latest delay in the talks, which are aimed at building on a ceasefire agreement signed last month and paving the way for more face-to-face talks between President Salva Kiir and rebel leader Riek Machar, a former vice president. “We won’t have the talks today,” a source close to the peace process told AFP in Addis Ababa, the Ethiopian capital and seat of the African Union, where previous rounds of talks have been held. Face-to-face talks between the warring parties will likely “be determined after the symposium,” the source said.
