EU welcomes agreement on S. Sudan

(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) EU High Representative Catherine Ashton Saturday welcomed the agreement reached in Addis Ababa yesterday to resolve the crisis in South Sudan. "This is a potential breakthrough if it is swiftly implemented. South Sudan is in a race against time. A humanitarian calamity beckons," she said in a statement. "The rapid implementation of this agreement is the only way large numbers of South Sudanese can be spared from violence and famine and the country can slowly begin to bind itself together after such a violent five months," noted the EU foreign policy chief. Ashton said the EU expects a prompt resumption of talks leading to the formation of a transitional government of national unity. "This is the first step to healing the country. This is a moment of opportunity for the people of South Sudan after these harrowing months," she added.
