South Sudan's Kiir hopes talks will bring 'immediate end' to war

South Sudan's Kiir hopes talks will bring 'immediate end' to warSouth Sudanese President Salva Kiir said he hopes his meeting with arch-foe Riek Machar in Khartoum on Monday will bring an “immediate end” to the devastating war in their country. Machar and Kiir met at a Khartoum convention centre for a new round of peace talks after a meeting between the two heavyweights last week in Ethiopia failed to achieve a breakthrough. The latest rounds of talks between the bitter rivals come as East African leaders launched new efforts to secure peace in South Sudan, where warring factions face a looming deadline to avert UN sanctions.
