October 26, 2019 (JUBA) – An international aid agency has welcomed the introduction of a bipartisan Senate resolution on October 22, 2019 in support of the peace process in South Sudan.

The recent United States resolution calls on the parties in South Sudan to adhere to the cessation of hostilities and form an inclusive transitional national government. It further directs the US government to support this process by maintaining life-saving humanitarian aid, providing assistance to address communal and gender-based violence, and monitoring human rights abuses and corruption, taking decisive sanctions action against violators.

"Mercy Corps welcomes the introduction of a bipartisan Senate Resolution (S. Res. 371) by U.S. Senators Chris Coons (D-DE), Johnny Isakson (R-GA), Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Todd Young (R-IN) in support of South Sudan’s peace process and efforts to transition to democratic rule,” said Mercy Corps’ Director of Policy and Advocacy, Richmond Blake.

The aid agency said with less than three weeks until the November, 12 deadline for the formation of a government of national unity, the resolution comes at a pivotal time and reaffirms US commitment to the people of South Sudan.

“We also welcome efforts this week by the UK, U.S. and Norway in the form of a Troika statement to exert pressure on the parties to the peace agreement to take urgent, concrete steps to ensure the success of the transitional government,” said Blake.

Mercy Corps urged called for redoubling of diplomatic efforts to support a peaceful resolution of the revitalized peace agreement’s outstanding issues as swiftly as possible.

"Failure to reach a political solution and form an inclusive, sustainable government of national unity could trigger a return to large-scale violence and undermine regional stability," it stressed.

An estimated 400,000 people have reportedly been killed, 1.9 million internally displaced and 2.3 million have fled the country since war broke out in 2013.

    Thank to everybody who wants peace in South Sudan. We do need peace in our country except we have a few monkeys hiding outside South Sudan and make empty noises every morning, but peace will come soon whether they like it or not. November 12th is our deadline. No extension, you are in, you are in or you are out, you are out and we move on.

      This is irresponsible to think about the formation of Govt on the 12 Nov. because vital outstanding issues are not done yet. This could means letting the 2016 J-1 “dogfighting” history repeat itself. I am so sorry to see INSC member states supporting that but Dr Machar and Dr Lam have shown south Sudanese that they care for this nation but stating clearly that they need a lasting peace.

You couldn’t develop your jiengelands alone, how can you form your govt alone. You are a bunch of losers, loud mouthy scoundrels yearning for help.

      The SS is neither your father’s nor mother’s personal property so that you set ultimatum as you wish. The fear for renewed fighting especially when fundamental issues of security, state boundaries and numbers have not been resolved are real. Go ahead and form you RTGoNU and expect war. That’s upto you.

          Secondly, You’re not salva Kiir and you will see no RTGoNU government being form on 12 November so stop that fake thumb-chest. Forming a government without the main opposition to the peace itself, a clear declaration of peace being collapsed and the war may follow

This time around, by God NEVER shall the rest be merciful. It’s you or the rest. Some day this jienge nonsense will perhaps prevail or die 💀 forever. NO PEACE.

In 2012, Deng Kuol or whoever was Ngok paramount chief was gunned down like a street dog by Messiriya, there was not even an attempt to retaliate let alone a protest. Abyei is gone.
