“It is honour task given to me by the Head of State H.E Gen Salva Kiir Mayardit to represent our country in New York at the United Nations general assembly. As the head of delegation representing South Sudan," he said

"I have met many UN officials and government delegations from different countries and I discussed with them to support the youngest nation through peace efforts and humanitarian support, to help the government on how we should support the resettlement of IDPs to return to their respective houses and begin a new life since they went through many difficulties,” further said Gai in a statement released to the public from New York, United States.

Gai is currently attending the general assembly of the United Nations. He is leading a 38 member delegation in which only two officials are senior members of the government.

The Foreign minister, Deng Alor Kuol and senior presidential adviser and special envoy, Nhial Deng Nhial comprised the team.

    Tell the truth, Taban. Peace will not prevails unless Riek Machar is in the country with you in the TOGNU. The west knows all these in the nation. If you want IDPs to come out and all humanitarian to work according to what you have said in the meeting, then don’t kill them and loot their properties. One of the problem is also no shelters for them because you burned them to the ash.

    Taban Deng deserve to be praise by all Nuer for the effort that he has put in place ,trying to reunite all the conflicting tribes of South Sudan and the intention of the devil whom do you called Riek Machar was trying to kill Nuer, Dinka and rest of the tribes.Taban is the developmental leader who had developed unity state during his tenure as governor and fed all Nuer.

    "It is honour task....or it is a honorable task....? This is when semi illiterate idiots assume the position of FVP and not remain a bush general. No one without a degree will be allowed to assume such high office.

    EU, TROIKA and many other countries and institutions are tired of giving and no results. You folks (Taban, Kiir) are the reason for the war, reason for sufferance of the people and reasons for being ignored by the international community.
    national dialogue will not work if you pick and chose.
    Furthermore, Mr.Taban, all you care for that seat no matter how much sufferance on your countrymen.
