Sudan / Anniversary of Comprehensive Peace Agreement Implementation


NEW YORK, January 13, 2009/African Press Organization (APO)/ — US Department of State Press Statement
Sean McCormack, Spokesman

Today marks the fourth anniversary of the signing of Sudan’s Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), which ended 21 years of civil war. The United States congratulates the parties on the progress made in implementing the CPA over the last four years, including creation of a Government of National Unity, establishment of a wealth-sharing program between North and South Sudan, and completion of the national census.

We urge the parties to fulfill crucial elements of the CPA, including preparations for 2009 national elections and resolution of the situation in Abyei. The CPA remains vital to securing peace throughout Sudan, and we look forward to continuing our support of its full implementation.
