The Joint Military Ceasefire Commission (JMCC) has on Wednesday held it 46th meeting in Juba.

This comes amid optimism that the much-delayed cantonment of troops has made some progress as site is being cleared and some shelters erected at Malubor.

JMCC Chair Maj. Gen. Majier Deng, who is in-charge of SPLA-IO-TD said some 750 soldiers are expected this week at the site.

A field inspection team drawn from JMCC, JMEC and CTSAMM has on Tuesday visited the site.

JMCC is staffed by four Deputy Chiefs of General Staff, two from government forces and two from the SPLM/A (In Opposition) Forces. 

The Commission is responsible for oversight and co-ordination of forces in cantonment and barracks, and reports to the Commanders in Chief of the respective warring parties.
