SOUTH SUDAN: Pope’s Visit Decisive In Bringing Peace

The President of South Sudan Salva Kiir (R) and his deputy Riek Machar (L) have signed an agreement that provides for the unification of the command of security forces.

This agreement is a crucial, if not definitive, step in securing the fragile peace process. It is believed that the announcement of the Pope’s visit to South Sudan played an important role in bringing the parties together and returning to negotiations to reach an agreement.

Pope Francis will be in Juba, capital of South Sudan, at the beginning of July. People are hoping that the Pope will bring peace to South Sudan and open a new era.
