Clip 5 IGAD Envoy, Amb. Seyoum Mesfin, at South Sudan addresses news media at press conference

“I would urge in the name of the suffering people that the focus on constructive media news rather than look for sensationalism and try to pass the wrong message across the continent.    There is no easy undertaking in a peace process. It is challenging. So we wish you to be objective and constructive."

Clip 3 IGAD Envoy, Amb. Seyoum Mesfin, at South Sudan talks news conference

  Since the day of independence  began South Sudan, it heralded to the people of south Sudan that they would ultimately be crowned with the dividend of independence and peace. But within a short period of time, only in two years, we witnessed today that again parents are burying their loved ones, their sons and daughters. This is painful, painful to the people of South Sudan, painful to all of us in the region because peace, tranquility, development and success is indivisible in our region.”

Clip 1 IGAD Envoy, Amb. Seyoum Mesfin, at South Sudan talks news conference

“The parties have agreed to tackle two critical items of agenda both of which are to clear the way for going into substantive talks that brough the conflict in the country. These are the cessation of hostilities with all elaborate mechanism for verification and monitoring, but also the status of detainees. Addressing these issues would naturally and obviously create a conducive environment for the talks.”
