March 19, 2018, Michael Makuei Lueth, Information Minister, told Radio Tamazuj today that his government had proposed that the venue of the next peace talks should be changed due to Ethiopia’s political instability.
“We want the venue of our peace talks to be changed because we don’t want our peace talks to be suspended because of the problems in Ethiopia,” he said.
“The talks can be hosted either by Djibouti or Kenya and Uganda, but Somalia, Sudan and South Sudan are out of question,” he added.
The government spokesman pointed out that the ongoing political instability in Ethiopia has negatively affected South Sudan’s peace talks.
“As you know very well that the issue of Ethiopia’s Prime Minister who is also the chairperson of IGAD has not yet been solved,” he said.
