In recent months, several peace agreements reported and cease-fires ended, but the peace agreement that Sunday is closed is the first one that is approved by all the political parties of the country.
South Sudan exists as a country only since 2011, when it broke away from Sudan. The armed conflict began two years later, by a conflict between president Salva Kiir and his former vice president Riek Machar. They belong to different tribes. The peace talks between the warring parties were for a long time difficult.
The country is impoverished and the number of inhabitants is estimated at around 12 million. A quarter of this is due to the war displaced.
