South Sudan calls on Sudan to resume negotiations.
South Sudan’s administration is asking the military and opposing parties in neighbouring Sudan to resume discussion as soon as possible in the aftermath of a coup.
According to a press statement published by South Sudan’s foreign affairs ministry, President Salva Kiir confirms his steadfast sympathy with the Sudanese people.
“At this hour, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of the Republic of South Sudan is resolute in supporting the ambitions and attitude of the Sudanese people, and will use all diplomatic channels to help Sudan,” the ministry said in a news statement.
However, the statement neither directly criticizes nor clearly praises Sudan’s military takeover.
Last year, President Salva Kiir brokered a peace deal between Sudan’s transitional government and factions of rebel groups from the western Sudan region of Darfur and the Blue Nile region, which resulted in the return of some leaders of these movements to Khartoum, and they are joining the interim government.
