"[Kenyan] President Uhuru Kenyatta has decided that further negotiations will continue in Khartoum and not in Nairobi", Sudanese Foreign Minister Al-Dierdiry Ahmed said at Sunday's signing ceremony.
South Sudan's conflict, which has seen tens of thousands killed, and millions displaced, began after President Kiir accused his then-vice president Machar of plotting a coup against him in 2013, just two years after it was declared independent.
South Sudan President Salva Kiir confirmed on Friday he is more than ready to make peace with rebels by inking the final peace deal on Sunday in the Sudanese capital.
South Sudan's almost five-year conflict began after Kiir accused his then-vice president Machar of plotting a coup against him in 2013.
Some opposition groups, however, have not signed the deal as they are dissatisfied with the power-sharing arrangement.
Kiir and Machar's factions have already agreed on a permanent ceasefire and withdrawal of their forces from urban areas, in the latest talks hosted by Bashir.
It also stipulated that the transitional cabinet would be composed of 35 ministers from both the government and the opposition, including 20 ministers from the government, and nine from the Machar-led Sudan People's Liberation Movement-in-Opposition (SPLM-IO).
Sudan helped broker the agreement. The transitional Parliament will comprise 550 lawmakers, 332 from Kiir's side and 128 from Machar's faction.
But Sudan's Bashir said the mediators were committed to ensure that the agreement was implemented.
A similar peace deal was signed in 2015 but fell apart a year later in a deadly battle that saw Machar flee into exile.
"I need to get for them their transport, and one person needs a motorcade of maybe five vehicles".
"I would urge. IGAD to focus after this on the implementation of the agreement", Machar said in his address. "So there are so many things need to be done".
President Kenyatta appealed to the political leadership in South Sudan to secure the future of the region by commencing implementation of the agreement.
The conflict has been fuelled by divisions between the Mr Kiir's Dinka and Mr Machar's Nuer ethnic groups.
