The IGAD Special Envoys announce to all South Sudanese stakeholders the release of the proposed Compromise Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan.
The proposed Compromise Agreement has been developed through the extensive negotiations by the South Sudanese stakeholders since the IGAD mediated negotiations began in January 2014. It reflects the ideas, concerns, and interests of the South Sudanese parties and stakeholders.
It responds to the demands of the South Sudanese people for an inclusive Transitional Government of National Unity that will reform the security sector and issues of economic governance and reform, address justice, accountability and national reconciliation, and finalize a permanent constitution before leading the country to elections.
The IGAD Special Envoys have consulted with all IGAD-PLUS partners (the IGAD member states, the five members of the African Union High-Level Ad Hoc Committee, the Troika, China, the African Union Commission, the European Union, the United Nations and the IGAD Partners Forum) on the provisions in the proposed Compromise Agreement.
The IGAD-PLUS partners of South Sudan have endorsed the compromises in the proposed Agreement by the Special Envoys and stand ready to accompany and assist the South Sudanese people in implementing this proposed Compromise Agreement to achieve a sustainable peace.
The IGAD-PLUS agrees on the urgent need to resolve this conflict, which has devastated South Sudan. The IGAD-PLUS are united in their determination to see that the Compromise Agreement is signed by August 17, which will go a long way to ease the suffering of the people of South Sudan and jointly call on the parties to return to Addis Ababa on August 5 prepared to finalize the agreement. ## End
