The appeal was made Tuesday, 15, in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), during the 886th Session of the AU Peace Council (CPS), which reviewed a report by African Union Commission President Moussa Faki Mahamat, focused on the state of implementation of the South Sudan Conflict Resolution Revitalization Agreement.

The Angolan delegation expressed its recognition of substantial improvements in the political and security landscape in South Sudan, notwithstanding some challenges, as well as advances in the humanitarian situation, which require special attention, the Angolan Embassy Press Service in Ethiopia said in a statement.
