JUBA, South Sudan — The United States special envoy to South Sudan says the country's warring factions have agreed to attend peace talks in Ethiopia.

Donald Booth said Tuesday that the commitment of both sides is "a first but very important step to achieving a cessation of hostilities" and the beginning of negotiations to resolve the crisis in the world's newest country.

South Sudan has been gripped by violence since Dec. 15 when a fight among presidential guards later spiraled into ethnically-based violence across the country.
