He added that low trust between the parties concerned was a clear obstacle, adding that it was likely that she and her leaders would be candidates in the upcoming elections. Detailed security measures are essential, he stressed. Regarding the cantonal sites, he said there was no agreement on where they will go. IGAD must cooperate with the Security Council, since only the Council is in a position to determine the size and composition of peacekeeping forces. The current problems do not prevent the revitalized agreement from being hailed as a real step forward, he said, stressing that it was clear that the international community needed to closely monitor South Sudan and the revitalized agreement. After its launch in December 2017, the HLRF was able to enable several negotiations over 15 months between President Salva Kiir Mayardits Sudan People`s Liberation Movement and the Army in Government (SPLM/A-IG), Riek Macharny Dhurgon`s Sudan People`s Liberation Movement and Army in Opposition (SPLM/A-IO) and other opposition political parties, which eventually culminated in the R-ARCSS. The R-ARCSS was preceded by five important agreements between the parties and actors in the conflict in South Sudan: we call on each of the parties to work towards the implementation of this agreement and we will continue to support all countries in the region in their efforts to achieve this goal. The legitimacy of R-ARCSS is another enabler. In general, there is considerable local ownership of the agreement and there seems to be a regional and international consensus on the acceptableness of the peace pact. While the international community seems sceptical — it is understandable that one observes the historical trend of violations of the peace agreements in Southern Sudan — they have pledged to support the peace process.

However, another possible obstacle to the implementation of R-ARCSS may be the deep mistrust and mistrust between the parties and between the parties to the agreement, which cannot be concealed. Such antagonism can be understood in the face of the persistent rivalry that has manifested itself in experiences of terrible and unpleasant intercommunal clashes between their respective supporters in South Sudan. Since the outbreak of the Second Civil War in December 2016, Kiir has repeatedly declared his inconsidence and indiscrimination in cooperating with Machar citing his intransigence9 In this context, the R-ARCSS parties will inevitably suspect the intentions, motivations and behaviors of the other, particularly with regard to the design, constitution and operationalization of historically controversial and politically sensitive provisions on the number and number of people.
