MOSCOW, January 24. /ITAR-TASS/. The world community lauds reconciliation in South Sudan that makes it possible to stop bloodshed and avoid the split in the country, Federation Council Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Mikhail Margelov said.
“At one time it seemed that the talks between the warring parties in South Sudan reached a deadlock. However, five weeks later the parties succeeded in reaching an agreement on ceasefire,” Margelov said, adding, “It is very important for a young country with fragile statehood, weak government and rich in oil.”
“Discords between tribes could turn South Sudan into a kind of Somalia,” the legislator said.
In addition, he said reconciliation “can’t be considered comprehensive” because President Salva Kiir failed to solve the problem of releasing opposition rebels. “Meanwhile, the priority of reconciliation is to ensure a lasting peace in the country and to strengthen state institutions, which are capable of stopping a new wave of violence,” Margelov said.
Thousands of people were killed as a result of confrontation that is why the African Union “put forth an initiative to create an investigation commission”, the legislator said.
