Juba, 12th September 2018. Without peace agreement civilians’ suffering will continue in South Sudan, says Global Director of Operations for the International Committee of the Red Cross or ICRC.
Dominick Stillhart stresses that it is important that political solution takes into account the needs of everyday South Sudanese especially marginalized groups like women.
He after his visit last week in a statement on Monday says the conflict in South Sudan that led to the humanitarian catastrophe is not an exaggeration, but fact.
The Director says civilians should not bear the burden of conflict and that thousands of children are being deprived of school and many are separated from their families.
The official calls on those at the negotiating table to make sure any agreement takes into account their needs, and of other marginalized groups.
Stillhart points out that only a political solution can end the violence and displacement the South Sudanese people have endured for five years.
