Print Version-Congressional Caucus on Sudan and South Sudan Joint Statement on South Sudanís Failure to Form a Unity Government


Congressional Caucus on Sudan and South Sudan Joint Statement on South Sudanís Failure to Form a Unity Government

February 5, 2016

Rep. Michael Capuano (MA-07), Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (NE-1), Rep. Barbara Lee (CA-13), Rep. Michael McCaul (TX-10) and Rep. Tom Rooney (FL-17) released the following statement today:

ďWe are disheartened that South Sudanís warring parties failed to form a Transitional Government of National Unity by the January 22 deadline. Since the countryís civil war erupted in December 2013, hundreds of thousands of civilians have been displaced from their homes and now face starvation. The ongoing violation of human rights and of the ceasefire, the dissolving of South Sudanís regional states, and further steps to undermine negotiations have disrupted the implementation of the peace agreement. President Kiir and former Vice President Machar are responsible to their people for beginning a transitional process without further delay so that the country can become a prosperous state. We urge both leaders to set aside their bitter differences and commit to sustaining peace in South SudanĒ.
