Britain said it was "committed to South Sudan peace" and ready to support the next round of the revitalization process in February.

In a statement after meeting South Sudan’s Foreign Minister Deng Alor in Juba on Thursday, British special envoy Chris Trott said his country is committed to support the peace process in South Sudan.

“We have talked about the importance of the revitalization process and how it is critical to bringing peace in South Sudan,” he said.

“I have recommitted my government and the efforts of Troika to this process,” he added.

The British envoy pointed out that the international community is committed to working together to bring about peace in South Sudan. He expected that all the parties to the revitalization process will come back to Ethiopia next month to continue the talks.

Britain is among world powers trying to put pressure on the government of South Sudan government and rebels to bring about peace.
