We strongly condemn all violations of the Cessation of Hostilities in South Sudan. We call on all signatories to the agreement to end all violence immediately and to enter the next round of the High Level Revitalisation forum with a genuine commitment to making progress. We are urging the Intergovernmental Authority on Development to ensure that the consequences for those who seek to spoil the peace process, or violate any agreement, are clearly communicated and effectively implemented.
