No deal yet in 'difficult' South Sudan peace talks

Salva Kiir at a press conference at Khartoum's airport on November 4, 2014Direct talks between South Sudan’s president and the country’s rebel chief have failed to strike a peace deal, mediators said Friday, but added that discussions would continue over the weekend. President Salva Kiir and ousted vice president Riek Machar have held two days of meetings in Addis Ababa, with Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalgen and Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta leading the latest push for an end to the nearly 11-month-old civil war. “My understanding is that the leaders are determined to make progress as they see this as a pivotal stage in the negotiations,” said Kenyatta’s spokesman Manoah Esipisu. According to a mediator from the east African bloc IGAD, the two South Sudanese leaders were told that “the credibility of IGAD is now at a low point”.
