Japan Government has donated 3.6 million dollars to the IGAD to facilitate the implementation of the recently signed peace accord.
The revitalized agreement is an amendment of the 2015 deal signed by South Sudan parties, ending years of conflict in the country.
Japanese Ambassador Seiji Okada said his government welcomes the signing and is committed to supporting the implementation process:
“We sat together with the other international community and we are ready to support the implementation of the agreement. The government of Japan has already delivered funding to the IGAD; we have dispatched 3.6 million US dollars already in IGAD account.”
Ambassador Okada said Japan expects that the parties will be devoted to the process.
He was speaking during the opening of a two-day education stakeholders’ workshop in Juba on Tuesday.
