March 22, 2014
With the Egyptian Assistant Foreign Minister Hamdi Loza reaching Addis Ababa and meeting members of officials from the Intergovernmental Authority for Development (IGAD) and African Union (A.U.), Egypt became the latest African nation who has come forward to bring about a peaceful solution to the ongoing conflict in South Sudan between the President Salva Kiir and Machar.
Minister Loza is reported to have met the members of the South Sudanese opposition members as well as representatives of international parties to the talks in Addis Ababa, including the European Union, the United States and the United Nations, according to a statement released by Egypt.
It appears that all parties have welcomed the involvement of Egypt to the negotiation table in its attempt to resolve the crisis.
