The agreement also provides for security arrangements that include protection of oil fields in South Sudan and developing the country’s infrastructure, but does not cover the more contentious issues, such as power-sharing and unifying government and opposition forces.

The deal declares that a permanent cease-fire in South Sudan is based on the Cessation of Hostilities Agreement, which was signed in December 2017 by Kiir, Machar, representatives of the former detainees, and political parties in South Sudan.
