"The Sudanese people cannot afford a resumption of conflict. We must all assist them in finding a peaceful way through one of the most important passages in their country's history.

 

We expect the referenda to be peaceful, carried out in an environment free of intimidation or other infringements of rights.

 

We expect both parties to accept the results, and to plan for the consequences.

 

And finally, we expect the parties to adhere to the CPA, without unilateral acts on either side, North or South."

 

Ban Ki-moon, UN Secretary General
