Remarks by Ambassador Wittig to the UN Press Corps on Sudan

Jan 18, 2011

First, our respect and congratulations to the Sudanese people.
Looking ahead is important.
Institution-building in the South and not to forget the North - this is an important point.
We want to stabilize the North and there are a couple of things that we can do like debt-relief and economic co-operation. Of course in the South institution building is very important, but we should not forget the North.
The Council should be engaged and remain engaged over the next months up to July when the CPA is expiring and we probably see the light of a new state there.
My own country is more than ready to contribute.
