Caritas appeal for peace in Sudan
CWN - April 25, 2012
Caritas Internationalis--the Church’s confederation of relief and development agencies--is appealing to the leaders of Sudan and South Sudan to step back from the brink of war.
“Caritas appeals to Sudan and South Sudan to stop military actions along the border,” said Michel Roy, the organization’s secretary general. “It’s not too late for both governments to check the momentum leading to an all out war.”
“The international community has failed to act decisively to prevent an escalation towards war,” he added. “They must follow through with their commitments to ensure all outstanding issues are resolved peacefully. Two million people died in the last war. Everyone will be losers in another conflict.”
