S Sudan rebels say govt stalling peace talks

22 January 2014, 21:52

Addis Ababa - A spokesperson for rebels in South Sudan charges the government is delaying peace talks because it is in a stronger position after winning back rebel-held territory.

Mabior De Garang said on Wednesday the government keeps changing the dates for talks in Ethiopia because "they feel they are now strong so they don't really need the peace process".

The UN and US officials have urged a speedy cease-fire agreement though little progress has been made in two weeks of talks while fighting has continued.

Thousands have been killed and half a million people have been forced from their homes since fighting broke out on 15 December between troops loyal to President Salva Kiir and followers of Riek Machar, the vice president he fired.
