December 20, 2013 (WASHINGTON) - The United States Secretary of State John Kerry announced that he is sending the special envoy to the Sudans Donald Booth to Juba in order to hold discussions with officials there on ways to end the conflict which has claimed hundreds of lives so far.

Kerry disclosed that he spoke on the phone with South Sudan president Salva Kiir to convey the US concern on the situation.

"Last night, I called South Sudanese President Kiir and urged him, as president of all of South Sudan, to protect all South Sudanese citizens and work toward reconciliation. We recalled the difficult decisions that led to the remarkable moment when so many stood in long lines for a referendum to give birth to South Sudan, knowing all too well that the toughest decisions were still to come. Now is the time for leadership that makes those decisions through dialogue," Kerry said in a statement.

"Now is the time for South Sudan’s leaders to rein in armed groups under their control, immediately cease attacks on civilians, and end the chain of retributive violence between different ethnic and political groups. The violence must stop, the dialogue must intensify".

Foreign ministers from Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) arrived in Juba today and met with Kiir as part of the regional effort to quell the crisis in the world’s youngest state.

Ethiopia’s Foreign Minister Tedros Ghebreyesus, who was part of the IGAD delegation, told reporters in Juba that they are here "understand the situation first hand" and described the meeting with Kiir as productive.

What began as clashes between different units of South Sudan’s presidential guard in Juba last Sunday, spread to other key places including the states of Jonglei and Unity.

South Sudan president Salva Kiir appeared on Monday to accuse his former deputy Riek Machar and other leading ex-officials of staging a failed coup attempt.

The government arrested ten former ministers and issued an arrest warrant for Machar, former ruling party Sudan People Liberation Movement (SPLM) Secretary General Pagan Amum and ex-governor of Unity state Taban Deng among others.

Machar denied plotting a coup and accused Kiir of using the clashes to get rid of his political opponents. He also rejected Kiir’s offer to sit down for talks unless the latter agrees to step down first.

On Wednesday, the SPLA announced that it lost control of Jonglei state capital of Bor after forces loyal to General Peter Gatdet Yak overran military bases the day before.

Heavy fighting broke out also in Unity state capital of Bentiu but it is unclear who is in control amid conflicting accounts.

The United Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) said that tens of thousands of civilians have sought refuge at their bases in Juba, Bor and Bentiu.

Juba put the death toll at 500 but it is likely that it will be revised higher. The Indian ambassador at the UN said that three of its peacekeepers were killed in Jonglei.

At least 35, 000 people, the UN said, are currently displaced within its premises in Juba and Jonglei state, with fears of possible rise in numbers as the violence spreads to other parts of the country.

The US top diplomat condemned attacks by militias on UNMISS bases.

"The United States strongly condemns yesterday’s attacks on the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) base in Akobo County in Jonglei State, South Sudan. We offer our condolences to the UN and victims of this attack. We call on all parties to respect UNMISS, to refrain from any attacks on its personnel, and to help facilitate its mission to protect civilians who have sought shelter from the turmoil secure the delivery of humanitarian assistance to all those in need" Kerry said.

Kerry warned that any attempt to take Juba by force will not be condoned by the international community.

"The United States and other partners are committed to the realization of South Sudan’s full political, social, and economic potential, but make no mistake: these cooperative efforts will be undermined if political disputes drag the country back into senseless conflict and strife. Moreover, any armed attack on the capital will be seen as an attempt to achieve an unlawful usurpation of power, which would be universally condemned. Those who seek to take or hold power by violence or division of South Sudanese along ethnic lines will not have our support. Violence today will not pave the way for a more stable or prosperous tomorrow".

Riek should be searched and trial in Court. The 500 people who died are not Nuer alone. The first person who got killed on spot is not Nuer. Riek should come and explain himself.

                (i) The south depends on its neighbor in feeding its people

                      I have no feeling of supremacy, but it seems you do. Black Africans have never been "together" but have existed as separate tribes, often fighting. If the Sudanese come together and reuunite Sudan I would be very happy, but not if they unite in a common hatred of white people, and not if they "unite" because non-Muslims are forced into Islam.

      Your coup addict, Dr. Defector Riek Machar Teny is simply daydreaming of running South Sudan. Why did he fail in 1991 in the bush and in Khartoum following inking of KPA in 1997? Killing innocent civilians is easy as it happened in 1991 in Bor and is again committed by notorious defector Peter Gadet. Who is telling Riek that becoming an icon is easy?

        To be the President of South Sudan or any country on this planet you need to be having a good track record, not zig-zagging through tribal lines or preaching tribal politics. We got to take advantage of unity in diversity for peaceful change not violent one. We don’t want any of the two largest tribes in South Sudan (Dinka & Nuer) to be populationally reduced through senseless killings.

      be sacrilegious to call him a Doctor in the context of social sciences.Come on!am a consequentialist and I have proven Riek Macar to be less than a human in his thinking and analytical abilities.The end justifies the means.Did 1991 succeed?has the current coup in Juba succeeded.HOOOO failure,failure tribalism is and had been the out come.Can he rule without Dinkas?may be not in South Sudan.

    Dr. Machar is ademocratic likes person than Kiir as aresult he (Kiir) planned to kill him with his supporters plus Nuer. It was Kiir ordered his army to kill every Nuer with their all supportesr from every tribes. I don’t see any reason John Keryy could said that any force to captures Juba will universally be condemned. Kerry seem to have gone mad. I monitor his word on the syria war its now again

      Obviously the game is over.Americans support Kiir.With the presence of Ugandan forces Juba will be reasonably stable.Musevini has achieved his dream,for which he worked "very hard" to come true!How long is he going to stay?!Could he interfer with a strong leader like Garang? Kiir win.Machar miscalculted it.Garang’s sons/orphans and Abyei gang had lost the game.The game is over!!!!!!

    He(Kerry) is damaging the image of America.Idon’t expect him to say that word.
    Now the peac plan proposed by African will not be accepted since Ugandan troops sides with Kiir.That is fake plan they want to kill Machar.How do they called for peace mediation while some of them have a side? I called upon Kerry to reverse his statement.Dr. Machar fight to bring peace in this country n foreign r/nship

      American has lost the sense of humanity when they were ruled by a decedent of corrupts and tribalist from Africa. If they don’t think twice on this situation, million will die within the coming days or months. Because everyone will see it as a humiliation planned by the international community against certain tribes in South Sudan.

        United Sates of America have never ever supported a Military dictator who kill his own citizens since they became the world most superpower. But it happened at the time of Obama administration.
