The Leadership of South Sudan National Dialogue, on behalf of the Steering Committee, would like to congratulate His Excellency, President Salva Kiir Mayardit, and the entire Government and people of South Sudan, on the occasion of the momentous conclusion of the Revitalized Peace Agreement to bring immediate end to the armed conflict that has devastated our country and inflicted so much suffering on our people.

The Steering Committee has consistently maintained that the two processes of the High Level Revitalization Forum and the National Dialogue share the same objective of peace, security, and stability for our people. With the two processes coming to a successful conclusion at about the same time, the challenge now is to steer their constructive convergence. It is our deeply held aspiration and expectation that these processes will usher into a culture of Dialogue, whereby the people of South Sudan will always resolve their differences peacefully by talking and not by resorting to violent means. We join our Government and all our people in celebrating this glorious achievement that, with God’s blessing, promises a brighter future for our nation and our people.

Angelo Beda, Co-Chair,

On behalf of the National Dialogue Steering Committee
