UPDATE 1-South Sudan parties agree to form interim govt by Nov 12

Wed, 11th Sep 2019 12:33

JUBA, Sept 11 (Reuters) - South Sudan President Salva Kiir and rebel leader Riek Machar have agreed to form a transitional government by the middle of November, the country's information minister said on Wednesday.

The two men signed a pact a year ago to end a civil war that has killed hundreds of thousands of people, displaced a third of the population and wrecked the economy. Machar made a rare visit to Juba this week to meet Kiir.

"The parties discussed minor issues and the principals agreed to establish transitional government by 12th November," Michael Makuei Lueth, the information minister, told reporters.

The roll-out of last year's accord, which called for a unity government, has been delayed because the government says it does not have enough money to fund disarmament and the integration of all the armed factions.
