Push from AU Needed to End Conflict in South Sudan

The International Crisis Group published on 30 June 2018 a statement titled "Improving Prospects for Peace in South Sudan at the African Union Summit."

The 27 June Khartoum Declaration signed by South Sudanese President Salva Kiir and former First Vice President Riek Machar does not resolve major points of contention between the two leaders, deferring them to talks which are ongoing in Khartoum. African leaders at the upcoming AU Summit need to push both sides to resolve outstanding differences. The choice is not between this process and a better one, but between it and none at all.
