China pledges to continue to support CTSAMVM

09 Aug 2023, Juba, SOUTH SUDAN – China has pledged to continue to support the Ceasefire and Transitional Security Arrangements Monitoring and Verification Mechanism (CTSAMVM).

This came during a meeting on Tuesday between the Chinese Ambasador to South Sudan H.E. Ma Qiang and CTSAMVM Chairperson Maj Gen Hailu Gonfa.

In their meeting, the Chinese Ambassador promised that the government of the Peoples Republic of China, through the Chinese Embassy in Juba, shall continue to offer financial and material support to CTSAMVM to enable it carry out its mandate.

CTSAMVM’s key mandate is to monitor compliance by the signatory Parties and armed groups, either under their control or invited to support them, to the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan (R-ARCSS) signed in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in September, 2018.

It monitors the signatory Parties through its Monitoring and Verification Teams (MVTs) located in 9 of the most conflict affected areas of South Sudan.
