NEW YORK, September 7, 2009/African Press Organization (APO)/ — Statement attributable to the Spokesperson for the Secretary-General on South Sudan :

The Secretary-General is deeply concerned over the string of attacks and counterattacks in South Sudan and the killing and displacement of innocent civilians.

The Secretary-General calls on all groups to find peaceful means of settling their differences. He also calls on the Government of South Sudan to re-double its efforts to ensure the protection of civilians and to work with UNMIS and the United Nations Country Team in strengthening security mechanisms, resolving the root causes of the tensions and addressing the humanitarian situation. Abatement of violence and intertribal reconciliation in the south are vital to the forthcoming elections in 2010 and the subsequent referendum in 2011.
