MOSCOW, January 10, 20:29 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s foreign ministry calls on the conflicting parties in South Sudan to immediately stop combat operations and enter a political dialogue, the Russian foreign ministry said on Friday.
“We are profoundly worried over the ongoing conflict between supporters of incumbent President of South Sudam Salva Kiir and the country’s former President Riek Machar,” the ministry said. “We call on the parties to the conflict to immediately stop combat operations and establish political dialogue.”
As a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, Russia takes rigorous efforts to find peaceful ways out of the military political crisis in South Sudan, the ministry noted. “We support the efforts of the African Union, the Intergovernmental Authority on Development and other international mediators. We stand for immediate resumption of the Addis Ababa negotiating process between representatives of South Sudan’s conflicting parties,” the ministry stressed.
According to the ministry, armed clashes are reported from two out of South Sudan’s ten states. “The humanitarian situation in South Sudan is deteriorating day after day: people, including civilians, are dying, the number of forced migrants and refugees is growing, food and fuel shortages are becoming more and more acute, the risk of epidemics is heightening,” the ministry said.
