It further said that it was an exceptional one-time program which would be terminated on 22nd January, the date by which the Transitional Government of National Unity (TGoNU) is scheduled to be formed.
The statement further said that support for all those now being provided accommodation in Juba will end but support to the peace process will not end.
‘It is an opportunity for the parties to demonstrate their commitment and find a solution that allows implementation to continue."
"It is with deep regret we take note of the current developments, where the process seems deadlocked."
"We urge all parties to do their utmost and act in accordance with the letter and the spirit of the peace agreement in order to meet the deadline and establish the TGoNU. The establishment of the TGoNU is the responsibility of the South Sudanese parties, and the financing, facilitation and security must therefore be the responsibility of the Republic of South Sudan," clarifies the statement in part.
Troika and the EU reiterated that they will continue to support the successful implementation of the Peace Agreement, working closely with regional and international partners through support to JMEC and the instruments established by the agreement.
The TROIKA States and the EU said they will only be able to mobilize additional external support and assistance if a TGoNU is formed and there is a sincere commitment by all parties to implement the agreement.
