Algerian FM welcomes reconciliation agreement in South Sudan

Algeria has welcomed Thursday, through its Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson Abdelaziz Benali Cherif, the signing of the reconciliation agreement between the parties to the conflict in South Sudan, and hoped that this agreement would help reach a final solution to their dispute.
“We welcome the signing, on Wednesday 21 January, of the reconciliation agreement between the parties to the conflict in South Sudan. We hope that it would help reach a final settlement of the dispute, which plunged the country into a serious humanitarian crisis,” Benali Cherif said.
“We also hail the mediation efforts led by the neighbouring countries (Kenya and Uganda) and we reiterate our commitment to the principle that Africa’s problems should be resolved by Africans,” he added.
“In this regard, we underline the need for the involved parties to engage in good faith in the African Union-sponsored mediation process, initiated by the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) in Eastern Africa, and which will resume by the end of January in Addis Ababa,” he added.
