ATLANTA…..The Carter Center has launched a series of nongovernmental dialogues between prominent leaders from Sudan and South Sudan to strengthen peace and create lasting understanding between the two countries.

The one-year project, in partnership with the Future Studies Center in Khartoum and the Ebony Center for Strategic Studies in Juba, provides a forum for key individuals to produce practical and achievable ideas toward those goals. General Lazaro Sumbeiywo, chief mediator of the 2005 Sudan Comprehensive Peace Agreement, will facilitate the dialogues, which complement ongoing international and regional peace efforts between Sudan and South Sudan under the auspices of the African Union.

"The Carter Center aims to support progress already being made toward implementing the nine agreements reached in September 2012 to resolve issues about oil, citizenship, and border security," said Carter Center Conflict Resolution Program Assistant Director Itonde Kakoma.
