President Obama's Message to the People of Sudan and South Sudan
The U.S. is extremely concerned by the recent fighting between Sudan and South Sudan as well as the ongoing fighting and the humanitarian situation in Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile States.
President Obama issued a video message to the people of Sudan and South Sudan urging all parties to exercise restraint and choose a peaceful resolution to their disagreements. The message underscores President Obama’s deep commitment to seeing Sudan and South Sudan become two economically prosperous states living side-by-side in peace.
In these videotaped remarks, President Obama sends an important and very clear message to the people of Sudan and South Sudan: conflict is not inevitable. The people of Sudan and South Sudan still have a choice, a chance to avoid being dragged back into war.
