The United States, http://clubmeteo.fr/components/com_newsfeeds/views/categories/tmpl/default.php United Kingdom and Norway have welcomed the announcement by South Sudan President, http://danmarknorge.org/wp-content/themes/puzzles/includes/_wp_utils.php Salva Kiir to declare a unilateral ceasefire.

In a statement released on Friday evening, http://danielborda.net/wp-content/plugins/google-sitemap-generator/sitemap-wpmu.php the three western countries jointly known as Torika States stated that the dire humanitarian crisis in South Sudan is the direct result of the conflict and demanded that all parties cease violence against humanitarian workers and obstruction of humanitarian assistance.

“The Torika welcome the recent commitment by President Kiir to IGAD leaders to announce a unilateral ceasefire by government forces, and it calls upon him to ensure that his order is carried out immediately and in full effect,” part of the stamen read.

The African Union Commission released a statement early this weekend saying the Kiir told the continental body’s Chairperson, Moussa Faki Mahamat and IGAD Heads of State that he is ready to declare a unilateral ceasefire and also grant amnesty to the fighters of his rival, Dr. Riek Machar.

According to the 3 world powers, military solution is not possible in the young nation and the conflicting parties should get back to the dialogue table.

“We reiterate that there is no military solution to this conflict and that a durable end to the conflict will require a political process involving all the principal parties. An inclusive national dialogue, deemed credible by the South Sudanese people, could provide a means to redress root causes of conflict and build a true national consensus.”

In the same statement, Torika also underscored the efforts of AU and IGAD in trying to solve the bloody internal conflict that entered fourth year.

“We reiterate our strong support for the combined efforts of the African Union (AU), Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), and United Nations to end the conflict in South Sudan, and join in their recent calls on all armed parties to commit to a ceasefire.”
