South Sudan reiterates commitment to support peace efforts in Sudan

The government of South Sudan said it is committed towards restoration of peace in neighboring Sudan.

 “We remain steadfast in our commitment to the pursuit of peace and will work tirelessly to support Sudan in its journey towards peaceful and prosperous future, South Sudan stands united with Sudan in its pursuit of peace,” said the ministry of foreign affairs and international cooperation in a statement issued in Juba on Friday.

It comes after some social media users alleged that Juba was supporting a rival group in the southern part of Sudan.

“The government will continue to engage with the regional and international stakeholders to enhance diplomatic efforts, facilitate reconciliation and contribute to the general stability of the region,” it said.

Juba recently hosted consultative meeting for various Sudanese parties’ to discuss the 2022 Juba peace agreement and also to collectively work together to achieve peace in Sudan.

Sudan descended into conflict on April 15 following disagreement between the Sudan Armed Forces and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces over the transition and integration of the RSF into the national army.

The conflict has killed more than 3,000 people and displaced millions internally and externally.
