October 25, 2017 (JUBA) - South Sudan president on Wednesday pledged full commitment to the revitalization of the peace agreement, citing acceptance to participate in the revitalization of the peace agreement, declaration of the permanent ceasefire, and the cessation of hostilities as well as granting unhindered access to humanitarian organizations for relief activities.

President Salva Kiir made the pledge during a meeting with the United States representative to the UN, Nikki Haley in the South Sudan capital, Juba.

The senior presidential advisor, Nhial Deng Nhial described as “fruitful and constructive” the meeting which President Kiir had with Haley.

“The two exchanged views and opinions on different issues,” said Nhail, adding that the South Sudan leader had the opportunity to further emphasize the commitment and the readiness of his government to fully commit to the revitalization process.

The meeting, the official said, focused on three main agendas: the Revitalization of the peace agreement, the permanent ceasefire, and the cessation of hostilities and access to humanitarian aid.

The president reiterated the commitment and readiness to fully commit himself to the revitalization process with the high-level revitalization forum launched by regional leaders, Nhial said.

Haley reportedly raised concerns on humanitarian access to which President Kiir reportedly assured her of his government’s continued support, citing ongoing the collaboration between the Juba government and the UN mission in South Sudan (UNMISS).

“We have been able to establish a mechanism that works jointly to improve and address problems of humanitarian access, and indeed there have been some improvements. The Government acknowledges that more is needed to be done”, said Nhial.

Halley said Washington was already at a cross point and it was not about talk but time for action and seeing the willingness of the government and the military to stop violence and abuses continuing to happen in the country despite the assurance of commitment.

“The United States is at a cross point...It’s not about the talks, it’s about the action. We have to see a willingness of the Government and the military to stop the violence and stop the abuses that are happening in the country,” said Haley.

"Time for action is now, we are not waiting anymore, we need to see a change and we need to see it right away," she added.

In June, a summit of IGAD heads of state and government decided to convene a meeting of the signatories of the South Sudan peace agreement to discuss ways to revitalize the peace implementation. During the June summit, it was agreed that all groups be included in the discussion aimed at restoring a permanent ceasefire.

IGAD unveiled the timetable for the revitalization forum with South Sudanese leaders and the nation’s citizens. It process began on 13 October and ended on 17 October.

The South Sudanese government warned that the revitalization forum by IGAD, the regional bloc which mediated the 2015 peace accord, should not be another platform for negotiations of the peace accord between the two factions to the conflict.

Over a million people have fled South Sudan since conflict erupted in December 2013 when President Kiir sacked Machar from the vice-presidency. Tens of thousands of people have been killed and nearly two million displaced in South Sudan’s worst violence since it seceded from Sudan in July 2011.

    My beautiful President Salva Kiir Mayardit. We will overcome all these challenges, and we will succeed in the future as a country. We will teach all these people who do not know anything about peace, and we will show all of them the way forward.

        All the superpowers are going to Juba to see Salva Kiir Mayardit. We cannot be pressured by outside for peace, but we will make order within the country. Everybody has now recognized that the government of South Sudan cannot be manipulated because they are the core identity of the country. You have to do your homework to understand South Sudan. If you know and study South Sudan, you will know what is up. The rest of the world has finally learned about the South Sudan government and how they conduct themselves. They are not comfortable people to deal with when it comes to protecting the identity of the country. I will leave the rest to you to think about it.

          Such are jienge sentiments that ludicrous and stupid. A country is not about belligerency and holding your jienge ground amidst a disintegrated and broken population. The country us a failure and has evolved into a jienge republic. The Kiirminal is now a Juba town mayor. He has lost authority and direction.

            You are Midit today, and you become Mitot tomorrow. My President Salva Kiir Mayardit apologized for you and every citizen in South Sudan two years ago. What else do you want? He apologized not because he is own who started the war but because he was the one in charge of leadership. Tell us, how can we deal with people like you, people who do not understand anything at all. All you do is blaming and blaming the president again continuously. We give you the milk, and you spit it out. We offer you the money and oil; you put it in your houses and luak. You lit up the fire and set your homes on fire. You burned the money and oil inside your houses, and then you told your women and children to go to the refugee’s camps to look for somebody else (Tayin) food or assistance. Why don’t you come back to your beautiful land and farm and live happily ever after? What else can we do for you? You are a crazy people.
