The Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission or JMEC strongly condemns violence on civilians and reminds all parties to respect ceasefire signed last year, says deputy chair.
Lieutenant General Augustino Njoroge regrets the killing of civilians, displacement of people as reported recently by UNMISS Human Rights unit.
South Sudan economic situation continues to worsen as prices are increasing every day, he adds.
The deputy chair calls on the young people to play their part in the peace process to end the suffering of the people.
He hopes peace will be realized during the meeting of the principal warring parties expected soon in Nairobi, Kenya.
The official spoke on Monday during the opening of the four-day orientation workshop for South Sudan youth in Juba.
The training is organized by JMEC in collaboration with the Youth Peacemaker Network and the Whitaker Peace and Development Initiative.
The course is to update students on the Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan, the High-Level Revitalization Forum and Cessation of Hostilities Agreement.
