Addis Ababa, August 7, 2015: The members of IGAD PLUS express their collective commitment to the inclusivity of the South Sudan peace process. In this regard, we express our concern that invited representatives of South Sudanese political parties have reportedly been prevented from traveling to Addis Ababa to participate in the IGAD PLUS peace process, which resumed yesterday. We call on the Government of South Sudan to immediately allow these and all invited representatives to travel and participate fully. We appreciate their cooperation in this regard.
