South Soudan At ‘precipice’ of civil war

Barack Obama, is now calling for an immediate end to the fighting in South Sudan, warning the country stands at the “precipice” of civil war.

Obama, who earlier announced he had deployed 45 troops to the violence-wracked country on Wednesday to protect US personnel and interests, warned that “recent fighting threatens to plunge South Sudan back into the dark days of its past”.

“Fighting to settle political scores or to destabilise the government must stop immediately. Inflammatory rhetoric and targeted violence must cease,” the US president added in his statement.

“All sides must listen to the wise counsel of their neighbours, commit to dialogue and take immediate steps to urge calm and support reconciliation. South Sudan’s leaders must recognise that compromise with one’s political enemy is difficult; but recovering from unchecked violence and unleashed hatred will prove much harder.”

Dans le plus jeune État du monde, le Soudan du Sud, la guerre menace à nouveau. Cette fois, il n’est plus question de tensions avec Khartoum, dont le Soudan du Sud s’est séparé en juillet 2011 après plus de deux décennies de conflit (1983-2005), mais d’une possible guerre civile sudiste qui a déjà fait plusieurs centaines de morts à Juba, la capitale.
