April 30, 2018 (CAIRO/JUBA) – The Egyptian President, Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi has assured his South Sudanese counterpart, Salva Kiir of his country’s support in efforts to ensure peace in the young nation.

Kiir, the spokesperson for Egypt’s presidency said, called El-Sisi to express his country’s keenness on continued cooperation in various fields, in light of the special relationship between the two nations.

The South Sudan leader, according to Bassam Rady, also updated his Eqyptian counterpart on the political and security developments in his country, lauding Egypt’s role in boosting South Sudan’s stability.

El-Sisi, AhramOnline reported, said the North African country would support all efforts to overcome the conflict in South Sudan so as to consolidate security and stability.

He further said that Egypt will also continue to assist development efforts in South Sudan, pointing to Cairo’s strong relations with Juba.

In November last year, rival factions of South Sudan’s ruling Sudan People’s Liberation Movement signed a unification agreement to rebuild trust and confidence among them.

The deal, dubbed the “Declaration of Unification”, was signed in Cairo under the auspices of President Al-Sisi and his Ugandan counterpart Yoweri Museveni.

In January 2015, delegates from three factions of the SPLM party signed a 12-page agreement in Arusha, Tanzania, laying out key steps toward reunifying the party.

Those who signed include the party loyal to President Salva Kiir, the SPLM-in-Opposition and which is led by former vice president Riek Machar, and a third made up of party officials who were detained when the conflict began in December 2013.

The SPLM, South Sudan’s ruling party, was initially founded as the political wing of the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA). The party, in the aftermath of the civil war that broke out in the country in mid-December 2013, split into the SPLM-Juba faction headed by Kiir, SPLM-IO led by Machar and that of the ex-political detainees.

    Great, Egypt role to bring peace to South Sudan is very important.

      This alliance (or the appearance of it) is beyond repulsive; we should not have relations with any Arab State, under any circumstances. This really does make it seem as though we are in league with Egypt against Ethiopia. Why on earth should we surrende centuries of resistance to Arab onslaught, slavery and imperialism...

        ..especially when it could potentially damage another African Nation for the benefit of an Arab State?! We will look like traitors in the continent; we will also -and more importantly- be dishonoring the memories of millions of our people that were enslaved by Arabs in the 19th century.

        Khen, There is not Arabs in Sudan. There is only a mixture of Sudanese with Some Arabs. Sudan including the South is a land of black people. But because the South failed to regime change, the whole Sudan was the problem. Now we are stuck in the Civil war in South Sudan. Our martyrs such as Keribino Kuanyin Bol, William Nyuon, Dr. John legacy, and ideologies are forgotten, and that is why we do not have unity among ourselves. If we remember what they had said about how we can live us one Sudan or South Sudan, we would not be criticizing or blaming anybody whether in Sudan or South Sudan.
        It was a bad and a wrong idea to divide the country into two but because South Sudan did not have any choice we decided to separate. And even though the country has been divided into two, we still face many challenges and civil war in the South And in North Sudan.

        The Good news is that we are learning in a hard way and this will bring peace in the future after learning that fighting each other is wrong. Mistakes are made, and that is how people learn from mistakes.
        Arabs are better than the people who brought Christianity to South Sudan. It turned out that these people were fooling us and fooling themselves with Jesus whom they did not worship in their home countries. Christianity and Jesus are used as a tool to or a bait. When you go fishing, you need bait to catch a fish, and if you do not have bait, you cannot find a fish or get your intended target.

          Khent is not talking about Sudanese, you dummy! Read his comments one more time. He is talking about Egyptians and their poor relationship with South Sudan. Damn Egyptians need allies in their water war with Ethiopia, but that will not work. We are more close to Ethiopia and the rest of sub-saharan African countries than the freaking Middle Eastern countries.

            Thank you Khent and Nairobimitot. Arabs enslaved and killed all that they enslaved. 95%of of Africans were enslaved by Arabs while 5% by Europeans at least survived in USA, Latin America and the Caribbean.

              Marco A. Wek,
              Thank you too -and for pointing out exact percentage. Arab way of life (culture) & religious orientation is incompatible with average South Sudanese and result was posted after 2011 referendum. Failed and Unwanted regime in Juba is doing everything to survive include reintroduction of South Sudan as part of Arab world.

During the RISE of the SPLM/A in early 1980th, Libya & Algeria were the first countries in Africa to help the SPLA with arms with ethiopia under Mengistu.

And our country, South Sudan is the one being ’set up by to be fought over’ by regional countries like what was done over Congo, Angola, Mozambique & other countries during the last cold war.

Perhaps resettling some landless Egyptian peasants in jiengeland would after all boost agricultural production than worthless and lazy idlers who can’t do anything. Great

    Compatriots,

    What Egypt is doing now is to drive a big wedge among South Sudanese do that they stay divided and render the country a failed state so that sympathisers of Jallaba can have a reason to say we have failed to run a nation and therefore should go under Jallaba rule. Nothing sweet can come out of Egypt that supports independence of the country.

    In politics there is no permanent friendship and no permanent enimity. Get it right idiots. Sudan and Ethiopia are league against South Sudan and supporting rebels. Egypt saw a young country being bullied by old strong countries and came to rescue the young one. Good. For now Egypt is our greatest ally whether you like it or loathe it. No thing you can do about it.
