Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi has expressed complete support from Cairo to South Sudan, providing all forms of support to establish a peaceful country.
Sisi met with a number of South Sudanese officials including the presidential envoy Tut Gatluak along with many senior Egyptian officials as well, accompanied by Egyptian presidential spokesman Bassam Rady.
Sisi in his conversations asserted that Egypt will continue enhancing bilateral cooperation with South Sudan and providing technical support to boost development for a better future in the country. This was confirmed by an official statement by Rady.
The reduction of violence in South Sudan is a fragile buildup. But it is finally getting to show some hope for change. A report by the UN in a meeting with the Security Council termed this as a “glimmer of what’s possible with peace” while delegates attending the meeting urged the belligerents to use the time afforded by the extended period in which to form a transitional Government to resolve thorny outstanding issues.
The meeting comprised the 15-member Council, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative and Head of the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS).
South Sudan has been fighting a battle for a stable government since the outbreak of civil war since 2013.
