The good thing about the South Sudanese conflict is that the two leaders have met on a number of occasions. At the beginning of the conflict, we struggled to get them to meet and talk. We now have achieved a level of success in that they do meet.
As it is now, both of them - I am informed - are in Addis Ababa. They are now involved in a further round of Igad negotiations which is aimed at working out what type of government they will have. As it is now, they are talking about the structure of their government, the nature of their government. I think a lot of success is being achieved.
We continue to work with both of them at a party level. In the next few weeks, we will get both the SPLM in opposition, the SPLM in Juba and the SPLM in Kenya to go back to Juba. That will be a major breakthrough and is already being planned.
With regard to what resources we are going to need, current resources really only involve travelling there and travelling to the various countries in the region to meet people and facilitate the peace process. Beyond that, we have not expended a lot more resources. Thank you.
