The United States is deeply disturbed that government and anti-government forces in South Sudan continue to violate the Cessation of Hostilities agreement, have failed to enter into an inclusive, political dialogue, and continue to jeopardize the security and economic stability of the people of South Sudan. In just over 100 days since this conflict began, the violence has forced one million people to flee their homes; millions more are in need of humanitarian assistance.

Mr. President, I thank the Kingdom of Jordan for proposing “War, its Lessons, and the Search for a Permanent Peace” as a topic for Security Council debate. In so doing, you have raised profound questions about the role of accountability, the role of the United Nations, and each of our individual and collective responsibilities in preventing and ending deadly conflict.
