Situation in South Sudan - AUC

12 January 2014

The Chairperson of the African Union Commission, H.E. Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, reiterates her earlier calls for a speedy and peaceful resolution of the violent conflict in South Sudan that has so far claimed more than 1,000 lives and also rendered more than 200,000 internally displaced people. She is encouraged by the on-going negotiations within the leadership of the Sudan’s People Liberation Movement (SPLM) taking place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, with the mediation of the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD). The Chairperson, however, notes with grave concern the continued widespread violence and looting which jeopardizes not only the on-going negotiations, but also the provision of humanitarian assistance to the affected population.

The Chairperson implores the parties to immediately cease hostilities, in the interest of the whole nation. She urges them to ensure continued access for humanitarian relief materials, personnel and other forms of assistance to reach the affected populations in all parts of South Sudan. Both parties are also called upon to guarantee the entire humanitarian corridors in the country for a continued supply and access of humanitarian relief to all parts of the country.

Finally, the Chairperson calls on the parties to be fully cognizant of, and respect their responsibilities and obligations under International Humanitarian Law and urges the speedy attainment of a cease fire, as a first step to ending and permanently resolving the conflict.
