Juba, South Sudan's government, rebel groups and opposition

parties signed a final peace agreement on Sunday, after weeks of

negotiations and years of violence in the world's youngest nation.

President Salva Kiir, rebel leader Riek Machar and an alliance of opposition leaders met in neighbouring Sudan where they came to a power-sharing agreement, Sudan's foreign minister Al-Dirdiri Mohamed told dpa.

"The agreement on outstanding issues has been signed and this agreement expresses the commitment of all parties to a ceasefire," Mohamed said.
