March 18, 2018 (SSB) — Ethiopia has urged South Sudanese stakeholders to support the regional efforts to end the bloody violence conflict which forced over 4 million people to flee their homes. As the IGAD-mediated High-Level Revitalization Forum (HLRF) on South Sudan is expected to resume during the upcoming days Ethiopia’s State Minister for Foreign Affairs Hirut Zemene Friday discussed the process with members of the political operation.

Ethiopia is a key influential member of IGAD, its plays instrumental role in bringing change either be positive or negative. Ethiopia needs to be proactive as chair of IGAD now for making peace happened in South Sudan

It is essential for IGAD strategy for driving the HLRF to be inclusive in embracing its member states participation. Secondly, IGAD strategy should be helping HLRF process to be focusing on conflict resolution and conflict transformation. IGAD should strengthen its outreach to South Sudanese on every development around HLRF. Mr. Yakani stressed
