Statement by Secretary Rice: Sudan Ministerial

Statement by Secretary Condoleezza Rice
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
December 5, 2007

Sudan Ministerial

This meeting underscores the international community's commitment to working with the Sudanese to see the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) implemented quickly. The CPA - an historic accord that ended 21 years of a brutal civil war - provides the best framework for a peaceful, democratic Sudan. The parties to this agreement are obligated to make every effort to guarantee its success.

This meeting also demonstrates broad commitment from states in the region and partners around the world to support the North and the South as they work to solve disputes like the Abyei boundary, conduct a census, and move to deploy their troops in accordance with the CPA. Free, fair and transparent elections in 2009, as stipulated by the CPA, are the best hope of building and sustaining a unified Sudan.

We also urge all players in Sudan to end the violence in Darfur and to support everyone in the country who wants peace, security, and prosperity for themselves and their children.
