“What is needed is not just an agreement but a platform, a method of making agreements and keeping them. Inclusivity must be one of the pillars. Without everyone who can contribute to the peace process, there is no possibility of long-term solutions. Inclusivity is a must. True inclusivity recognizes that others hold some power and, especially, that they hold the key to future cooperation.”
The statement was made by the PassBlue (an independent journalism site covering the US-UN relationship, women’s issues, human rights, peacekeeping and other urgent global matters) in a story published on December 17th 2019.
The story entitled For South Sudan, the Promise of Inclusive Dialogue Lies Ahead explores the successful approach taken by the community of Sant’Egidio to reach out to the representatives of the South Sudan Opposition Movements Alliance (SSOMA) with the aim of facilitating an end to South Sudan’s civil war through an inclusive, constructive and genuine dialogue.
In November 2019, a delegation of the SSOMA led by NAS Chairman Gen. Thomas Cirillo met the Sant’Egidio community in Rome, Italy from 18th to 20th November. The meeting, and the widely distributed communique of the meeting, received national and international praise.
