Revitalized Agreement On The Resolution Of Conflict In South Sudan

The legitimacy of the R-ARCSS is another facilitator. In general, the agreement is strongly locally responsible and it appears that there is a regional and international consensus that the peace pact is acceptable. While the international community seems skeptical of the historic trend of violations of the peace agreement in South Sudan – understandably – it has pledged to support the peace process. The troika of the United Kingdom, the United States of America and Norway expressed “concern about the commitment of the parties to the agreement”17, acknowledging, however, that the Agreement was crucial for the fight against peace and security in South Sudan, while the United Nations spokesman for the Secretary-General for South Sudan hailed the peace pact as “positive and important development.” Overall, the development of trust, cooperation and cooperation between the parties in the implementation of the R-ARCSS will be the greatest companion to success. While it is the view that, in prolonged and persistent conflicts, warate parties often sign peace agreements under political pressure to end human suffering, the peace process is often an opportunity not only to strengthen and strengthen the neglected or imperfect provisions of the Peace Pact, but also to detoxify political relations, change political attitudes and restore unity. That is why the commitment of the R-ARCSS parties to invest in attitudes, institutions and structures that strengthen peace and resilience in South Sudan will be essential. Leaders, in cooperation with all parties involved, must strive to preserve the essential pillars of positive peace – that is, a functioning government, democracy and the rule of law, a business-friendly environment, equitable allocation of resources and the development of human capital. Most importantly, the ability to establish and implement peace-building structures and systems that can proactively prevent and manage and resolve future conflicts will be critical to the implementation of the R-ARCSS. Given the history of conflict in South Sudan and its current classification as the world`s most fragile state, it should never be assumed that such tasks are simple and simplistic.19 We call on IGAD to appoint a permanent chair for the Joint Life Supervision and Evaluation Committee to oversee the implementation of the agreement. I will focus on three areas: the peace process, the humanitarian situation and the human rights situation and the role of the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNAUTO). 1/ The renewed agreement on the resolution of the conflict in South Sudan is a historic opportunity to end the conflict in South Sudan and France regrets that the period leading up to the transition has been extended by six months. It is imperative that this be the last postponement. Whatever happens, a national unity government is to be formed in November.

We encourage President Kiir and Riek Machar to work together to find a compromise on the most sensitive issues, including security measures and the delimitation of internal borders. In terms of scope, the R-ARCSS covers issues relating to governance structures and institutions of the Transitional Government of National Unity (RTGoNU); a permanent ceasefire and security measures for transitional security, humanitarian aid and reconstruction agreements; an agreed framework for managing resources, the economy and the economy; The agreed principles and structures for transitional justice, accountability, reconciliation and healing; The parameters for managing the ongoing constitutional process; creation of the Joint Supervisory and Evaluation Commission (JMEC); and operational procedures and amendments to the agreement.
