We remain deeply concerned by the situation in South Sudan. Nearly 2 million people have been displaced and thousands killed. We welcome the Inter Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD) agreement of 1 February between the parties to the conflict but this needs to be implemented and a transitional government formed. Throughout the peace negotiations we have been clear that any transitional government must listen to the diverse range of voices that exist within South Sudan including the important role that religious leaders can have in the reconciliation process.
