UK, US and Norway condemn violations of the Cessation of Hostilities agreement in South Sudan.
The members of the Troika (Norway, the United Kingdom, and the United States) strongly condemn the continuing pattern of violations of the 21 December 2017 Cessation of Hostilities (CoH) agreement by parties to the South Sudan High Level Revitalisation Forum (the Forum), and call on all parties to immediately and fully implement the CoH in letter and spirit and ensure humanitarian access throughout the country.
The Troika Welcomes the Agreement on Cessation of Hostilities, Protection of Civilians and Humanitarian Access Concerning the Conflict in South Sudan.
On Thursday 21 December, the parties to the conflict in South Sudan signed the Agreement on Cessation of Hostilities, Protection of Civilians, and Humanitarian Access in Addis Ababa.
The Troika calls on all parties to participate in the upcoming South Sudan peace talks.
The following statement was issued jointly by the Governments of the United States of America, the United Kingdom, and Norway.
The members of the Troika (Norway, the United Kingdom, and the United States) recently traveled to Sudan, Ethiopia, Uganda, South Sudan, and Kenya in support of the efforts of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) to urgently convene a High-Level Revitalization Forum (HLRF) for the Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan.
According to new figures, refugee-related costs in Norway for 2017 are NOK 1,36 billion lower than projected. The Government has proposed that most of the unused funds should go to parts of the Middle East and sub-Saharan Africa that are severely affected by war and conflict.
Improving the mediation of armed conflict
A global series of mediation retreats
The Oslo Forum is widely acknowledged as the leading international network of conflict mediation practitioners. Co-hosted by the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue (HD) and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Oslo Forum regularly convenes conflict mediators, high-level decision-makers and key peace process actors in a series of informal and discreet retreats.
Co-chairs’ summary issued on behalf of Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Mr. Mark Lowcock; African Union Commissioner for Political Affairs, H.E. Ms. Minata Samate Cessouma; and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Norway, H.E. Mr. Børge Brende
On 20 September 2017, we hosted a high-level meeting to draw international attention to the escalating humanitarian crisis in South Sudan with participation from United Nations Member States, regional organizations, UN partners and members of the civil society.
Education unlocks the potential of young minds, and helps new generations realise their dreams for the future. However, we are facing a global education crisis. Millions of children are out of school, or in school but not learning. We must put education at the top of the agenda.
The members of the Troika (Norway, the United Kingdom, and the United States) and the European Union condemn the continuing violence in South Sudan, especially the Government of South Sudan’s current offensive against SPLM-In Opposition (SPLM-IO) forces near Pagak, as well as ongoing road ambushes and attacks by the SPLM-IO.

The text of the following statement was issued jointly by the Governments of the United States of America, the United Kingdom, and Norway.
More than 20 million people in four countries are on the brink of famine. 'We are facing the worst humanitarian catastrophe in the history of the UN. Nearly 1.4 million children are at risk of starving to death. Norway is therefore increasing its support for life-saving emergency aid and food security to a total of NOK 673 million,' said Minister of Foreign Affairs Børge Brende.

While the international community is primarily concerned with trying to restore stability and providing protection and relief to an increasing number of people in South Sudan, evaluations of past development interventions provide important lessons that are relevant for future aid policy and implementation. Development and humanitarian programmes in South Sudan had four main weaknesses:
THE DONOR COMMUNITY did not develop an overall strategic plan for recovery and development for itself or in collaboration with the government.
In a joint statement, the IGAD, Troika, and EU partners of the Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (JMEC) condemn calls by opposition leaders in South Sudan for a renewal of armed conflict, and call on the government and armed opposition groups to immediately adhere to the permanent ceasefire.
Statement of the IGAD, Troika and EU Partners of JMEC Regarding Calls for Armed Conflict
“Together with my Troika colleagues, I welcome the long-awaited formation of South Sudan’s transitional government of national unity," said Foreign Minister Børge Brende.
The European Union Delegation, the Heads of Mission of Denmark, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, The United Kingdom and the Heads of Mission of Canada, Japan, Norway and Switzerland issue the following statement in South Sudan:
The Heads of Mission express their grave concern at the potential consequences of the passing of the non-governmental organisations bill, and the Relief and Rehabilitation Commission bill in Parliament on 2 February.
The Troika (Norway, the United Kingdom and the United States) express serious concern about President Salva Kiir Mayardit’s October 2 announcement that he plans to replace South Sudan's 10 states with 28 new states. This announcement directly contradicts the Government of South Sudan’s commitment to implement the peace agreement it signed on August 26.
'The humanitarian needs in South Sudan are massive, and they are increasing. Nearly eight million people are experiencing a critical food shortage, out of a population of just over 11 million. Norway is now increasing its support for humanitarian assistance in the country by NOK 30 million,' said Minister of Foreign Affairs Børge Brende.
Norway is providing USD 20 million (NOK 150 million) in emergency aid to the civilian population in South Sudan. ‘Nearly 6.5 million South Sudanese have been affected by the humanitarian crisis that has resulted from the violent political power struggle in South Sudan. Norway wants to support the civilians who are now suffering. At the same time, we will continue to urge the country’s leaders to put the needs of the people first, to bring an end to the conflict and find political solutions that will benefit the country in the future,’ said Minister of Foreign Affairs Børge Brende.
