Violence In Southern Sudan

The United States condemns the recent fighting between elements of the Sudanese Armed Forces and the Sudan People's Liberation Army in the southern Sudanese town of Malakal. Scores were killed and more than 300 innocent civilians injured.

The United States calls on both parties to stop the fighting, to refrain from further attacks, and to cooperate fully with the UN Mission in Sudan and humanitarian relief efforts.

Both parties must honor their obligations under the Comprehensive Peace Agreement, particularly its security arrangements and ceasefire provisions.
