South Sudan recalls head of diplomatic missions from seven countries

The 14 June 2017 letter carries the signature of the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Deng Alor Kuol.

“The esteemed Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation would like to inform you that the above-cited decision has been taken by the leadership of the ministry, you are therefore to avail yourselves within 60 days to expedite the process of handing over to the most senior diplomats,” read the letter seen by Sudan Tribune.

The letter was addressed to South Sudanese ambassadors to seven countries including United Kingdom, Sudan, Germany, India, Egypt, Uganda and Eritrea.

South Sudanese diplomats contest the decision pointing they cannot return before to have their salaries and the needed money to pay the rent of their apartments.

The Spokesman of South Sudan’ Foreign Ministry, Mawien Makol, said that a recall was part of normal administrative measures, where a period since the diplomats were deployed to specific countries has elapsed.

“This is a normal recall. It is part of the routine changes when the period of deployment has elapsed,” Mawien told Sudan Tribune when reached for a comment on Monday.

    No money in Kiir’s pocket because he foolishly chose to fight Dr. Machar over implementing the ARCISS. Stupid men face such dilemmas....

      I wonder why this is news when in civilized countries this is normal administrative routine. UK, Uganda or any other countries don’t recall their diplomats and put that as news. It’s just the jienge republic is financially broke and these diplomats are costly. Also, these countries are fed up with SS. That is jienge misrule.

        The list is growing: independence anniversary celebrations called off, diplomatic missions abroad shrinking, civil servants not paid, etc. Only the Arab Republic of Egypt will come to the aid of Kiir because at this hour of dispair he will just sign off the agreement RESUSCITATING the construction of JONGLEI CANAL...

    Gatkhor Nueri, please leave South Sudanese people in peace. Quoting for us Dr.Turabi is nauseating and insulting to South Sudanese. Go back to Khartoum and lick their anus as you did throughout the 21 year war with your shamed Nasir coup, and Nuer militias of Matip, Koang Chol, Abdhalah Chuol,etc. We all know that Nuer only worship Arabs.

    The government must exercise extreme care on the diplomats it deploys abroad especially to sensitive countries like G5, Khartoum, Ethiopia, Egypt, Uganda, South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana, DR Congo, India,Canada, Kuwait, Qatar, etc. If another blunder is foolishly made in this respect, it will be costly. Read about the dual characters of Talleyrand, and Price Metternich in diplomacy.

    The ruling elite in Juba should know that winning the war in battle front is good but winning the diplomatic battle is much more assuring and it secures the foundation of political success. Why is the UN security council, and other major powers in Europe, and some countries in our own backyard hell bent on destroying South Sudan? Our diplomacy is weak if not walking sleeping.

      Lenin Bull,

      Your diplomatic corps is weak because it is stuffed with inept folks; hand-picked, tribally selected....

    My people believe me or not,

    South Sudan Government is not a government but,is cunning groups with no agenda, objectives and mission to rule the country. If there is no peace in South Sudan within those three Months than, no one will be there in Juba. Kirr himself will joint the rebellion.
