UN: South Sudan Government On Offensive
April 29, 2017 (Nyamilepedia) —— The violence in South Sudan has escalated in a large scale due to the offensive of the government of South Sudan against the armed opposition, Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesperson for the Secretary General of the United Nations has said in a statement.
According to him, the United Nations is disturbed by the high level of the violence that has recently displaced civilians from their homes and caused many of them suffering. The United Nations called upon the South Sudan warring factions to cease hostilities, protect civilians and allow the humanitarian services to reach the people in need.
The world body has called for a peaceful settlement of the conflict, urging that there will be no military solution to the crisis in South Sudan. Stéphane calls upon regional and international peace partners to join hands with the United Nations to arrest the situation by quickly returning to the negotiating table.
We hope regional and international partners will join us in encouraging the parties to return urgently to the negotiating table, and we remain committed to working with the African Union and IGAD to secure a peaceful resolution of the conflict.
