The SPLM/SPLA-IO Position on Joint Communique Between SPLM/SPLA – IG And The UNSC Members Who Visited Juba

Press Statement,


September 05, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —— The Leadership of the SPLM/SPLA – in Opposition (IO) welcomes the Joint Communique by the SPLM/SPLA in Government (IG) and the members of the United Nations Security Council, dated 2016/09/04. The SPLM/SPLA – IO salutes the courage of the other warring party in reaching this decision after being vehemently opposed to it. The SPLM/SPLA IO believes this is an important step in resolving the contradictions that have emerged in the implementation of the Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan (ARCISS) after the collapse of the security arrangements on 2016/07/08.

The SPLM/SPLA – IO, under the leadership of the legitimate Chairman and Commander in Chief of the SPLM/SPLA Dr. Riek Machar Teny-Dhuorgon; who is also the legitimate First Vice President, advises the SPLM/SPLA – IG and the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) to consult the SPLM/SPLA – IO in any negotiations for the deployment of the Regional Protection Force. This will ensure that the forces of the SPLM/SPLA – IO (who are the other warring party according to the ARCISS) are cognizant and observe any decision made during these negotiations.

The SPLM/SPLA (IO) would also like to take this opportunity to express our full commitment to the full implementation of UNSC Resolution 2304 and all related communiques, which will allow the leadership of the SPLM/SPLA – IO to leave the UNMISS PoC’s and return to resume the implementation of the ARCISS in letter and spirit. This will also ensure the return of the legitimate FVP who was forced to flee Juba after the collapse of the Security Arrangements of the ARCISS on 2016/07/08.
