Efforts towards a lasting solution to the South Sudanese crisis registered another upset as the two rivaling parties at the centre of the four-year crisis failed to agree on the power sharing deal, Juba based media reported today.


Sources from South Sudanese capital Juba say on Friday the two sides did not conclusively agree during the latest round of peace talks. Another round of talks is scheduled to take place in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi on unknown date.

Apart from the permanent cease fire the warring parties signed recently before Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, the principal mediator, there seems to e little progress towards the return of peace in the youngest African nation, just born in 2011.

The opposition side is accusing Salva Kiir’s government of repeatedly violating the cease fire and labeling them “ant-peace elements and zeroing on “unreasonable demands”.
