U.S. official urges regional pressure on South Sudan leaders


January 4, 2019 (JUBA) - U.S. senior diplomat from Africa has called on the IGAD countries to put pressure on the two main peace partners in South Sudan to move forward with the formation of the transitional government.

Nagy Tibor made his call following a statement by the IGAD countries the United States, the United Kingdom and Norway to mark the 50th day of the 100-day extension of the pre-transitional period concluded last November.

"IGAD secretariat should hold President Kiir and Dr Machar accountable and urge compromise," Tibor said.

He further expressed his disappointment that the sticky issues remain unimplemented referring to the security arrangements and the number of states and their boundaries.

"Dismayed that with less than 50 days remaining, South Sudan’s leaders have failed to resolve the issues to form a national unity government" he further said.

The Troika in its statement on Thursday welcomed the commitment made by Kiir and Machar to form a government of national unity by the February deadline even if they did not complete the implementation of the critical issues.

Also, due to the fragile security situation in the country, they recalled the two parties to remain committed to the ceasefire agreement which is considered by the region’s leaders as the most important achievement until now.

      one wonder what the western nations need 4 us. all they are doing is supporting ideas that service as promoters of next war. how could Nagy make such shallow statement. in 2016 unity govt was formed b4 the complete implementation of peace then came the war as a result of refusal to implement the remained modalities. read "...even if they did not complete the implementation of the critical issues.

    The security arrangement, so there is no question about it at this time. As for number of states, no change, people of South Sudan want 32 states to stay, I mean majority of people in South Sudan want to keep their states as they are. There is no single reason for Nagy Tibor to make any call for IGAD. Majority rule Mr. Nagy. It’s true in USA and will be true in South Sudan. What say you?

    No government will be form in February 2020. It will be a great mistake, disappointment and failure of SPLM_IO if they agree to form government without reducing the number of States to either 10, 21 or 23. This 32 JCE should be abolish for the betterment and peaceful living of South Sudanese people.

Glencore is controlled by the Rothschilds. The PetroNile joint venture will be 51 percent controlled by Nilepet and 49 percent by Glencore.

Also, Israel sent the SPLA weapons in 1996 by using Kenya to do so. Furthermore, in 1996 the Clinton Administration announced that military aid to Ethiopia, Eritrea and Uganda was to be used to arm the SPLA for an offensive on Khartoum.

From bases in Chad, these terrorists launched forays into the Darfur region of Sudan, creating a massive refugee crisis, while opening a second northern front in Big Oil’s SPLA-led southern flank war against Sudan.

They were smuggled under the guise of foreign aid through: UNICEF, WFP, WHO, FAO, UNHCR, USAID, OXFAM, CARE, ICRC, World Vision, & other donor organizations.

                                                                  repondre message

Southern Air Transport, a CIA front, smuggled landmines & weapons through Norwegian People’s Aid. They also were awarded Nobel Prize for campaigning to ban to ban landmines LOL. NPA is known as Norwegian People’s Army in ethiopia hahah

                                                                      repondre message
