“As the government of South Sudan has opened a wide dialogue way forward of ending the ongoing war in the country, let those involved in this crisis accept to come back for peace negotiation and stop killing of innocent civilians,” Giir stated.

He said the Nuer community worldwide need to be convinced to a common solution to put an end to this devastating civil war which is warning the whole nation into deeper crisis.

“They should sit down with their people to bring into understanding that the current war does not isolate on their tribe in the country,” Giir said.

He said let those Nuer tribe residing in some parts of South Sudan need to feel free and understand that they are not being targeted by the army or anybody.

“Power struggle through bloodshed should not influence the entire country, for whoever needs power should not use violence but should go through democratic system,” Giir said.

He said any tribe in South Sudan has right to rule but should be based on democratic principles.

‘The innocent people dying now are those to bring you on power, therefore, their lives are very important for you and for them,” he said.

He calls on the army officers fighting their own government to lay down their arms.

He warned that the international community should not look at the crisis as a tribal conflict but should understand that the violence started just after an attempt coup by some individuals who were willing to overthrow the current democratic leadership in the country.

Giir calls on the international community led by AU and IGAD to help the young nation in ending escalating violence into civil war.
