President Goodluck Jonathan has met with President Omar Al-Bashir of Sudan and President Salva Mayadit of South Sudan, in a bid to find lasting peace between the two nations.
The meeting, held at the instance of Mr. Jonathan in Addis Ababa on Sunday, had in attendance Presidents Jacob Zuma of South Africa and Alassane Ouattara of Cote d’Ivoire.
The Kenyan President, Mwai Kibaki, and the Prime Minister of Ethiopia, Hailemariam Dessalegn, were also represented at the meeting.
The meeting was necessitated by the need to further dialogue on possible ways of achieving a comprehensive peace in the Sudan.
Mr. Jonathan had on Saturday met the leaders of the two nations in separate meetings and promised further discussions until a lasting solution to the problem between the two countries is achieved.
He sought the support of the other four countries to ensure a speedy resolution of the cross-border violence between Sudan and South Sudan.
