On October 15, the Honourable Lawrence Cannon, Minister of Foreign Affairs, issued the following statement urging all parties to the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) in Sudan to focus their efforts on referendum preparations and post-referendum arrangements and to engage in constructive dialogue:

“It is imperative that the parties to the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement avoid rhetoric on the upcoming referenda that undermines their credibility and the preparations for and negotiations on post-referendum arrangements.”

The Jan. 9 referendum will determine if South Sudan will become an independent country. If the vote does not take place as scheduled and if it is not carried out in a free and fair manner, the potential for renewed violence is real.
