May 18, 2018 (JUBA) - Newly confirmed U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Friday discussed with African Union Chairperson Moussa Faki ways to end the over four-year South Sudanese conflict.

According to a statement released by the State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauret, Pompeo called Faki to reaffirm the "strong partnership" between the United States and the African Union.

He discussed with the head of the African Union executive body the mutual interest to advance peace, security and human rights in Africa.

"They, also, discussed the need to continue our cooperation on diplomatic efforts, including urgently working to end the conflict in South Sudan" and ongoing preparations in the Democratic Republic of the Congo for the general election in December of this year.

The United States is strongly involved in the IGAD and the African Union efforts to resolve the South Sudanese crisis. Also, Washington is the first providers of humanitarian to the east African nation.

Ten days ago, the White House said deeply frustrated with the lack of progress in the IGAD-led peace process and announced a comprehensive review of assistance programs to South Sudan.

The review will include the U.S. support for the Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Mechanism (JMEC) and other mechanisms established to support the implementation of the Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan (ARCSS).

The American administration questions its support for an agreement that does not bring peace to the country where the parties continue to wage war.

      Malakal county Simon,
      The greatest thieves of all people were your Riek Machar, Taban Deng Gai, Pagan Amuom, Kosti Manibe, Majak Agoot & Thomas Cirillo. If you idiots don’t know this simple fact. But as usual, many of you Riek Machar losers don’t know anything beyond your Ngundeng Buong superstitions. South Sudanese people want that money back & that was why Mr. Salva Kiir sent the controversial>>

But some of you Riek Machar lowly informed fools only think, when you are in the current government, then you are corrupts & but when you steal & run away from the current government & formed rebellion, then they are not corrupts??? Riek Machar fools, stop your aimless armed rebellions & take you people to schools>>>

    Peace is very important to all of us in South Sudan, but when you have a few rebels who make their living by stealing, abduction, robbery, destruction and killing of innocent people, it becomes very hard to deal with them. US must know that for peace to come, these coin rebels need pressure on them. Our government is willing to share power with them, so more than that we can do?

      Machar has already been locked up in distant South Africa and Taban Deng co-opted by Kiir, has that helped? When Kiir remains at the helm, trust me, there will always be instability in South Sudan - no peace!

        You talk like a very small boy. Tell us where will your uncles, you, your tribe and your community go if war continues in South Sudan? You talk like someone who secures a very special place for his people, then comes back to wage the war to kill others, that’s not there for you. Your people are deep, deep inside the red zone of war.

      Our cousin Nuer take all the blame of what is happening in South Sudan, but after this war, Nuers are going to be very nice people, I wish. They have been taught very dear lessons about current war in South Sudan.

        South South,
        Telling a Nuer the truth is like telling a dead wood to him itself into fire. If there a one particular state in our country that the Nuers occupy without the Dinkas/Jaangs, then the Dinkas/Jaangs would have let these Nuers with lawlessness get the hell out of our states>>>

          Don’t even think the Nuers will learn anything. The Nuers & Shilluks cancerous aimless armed rebellion had been our country & people problem all the times. You have seen how the low lives are loitering in Khartoum, the so-called UN POCs & Juba? And these losers can’t even feel ashamed, it is their way of life. They are told to get the hell out of these so-called UN compounds & farm their lands>>>

          - "You should be the ones that should be very worries about what would be happening to you when our turns come"

      The word truth is what has never been some of you Nuers vocabularies. How did you idiots got out of the two Juba army Barracks on the 15/12/2013? Did the Ugandan army pushed you idiots out of Juba? Leave that one aside, were the Ugandans the ones who blasted you losers in 1991, 1992 & to 1993 until you losers surrendered your sorry selves into cloned so-called arab North Sudan?>>>

        And even since 2013, where do you losers think you get your arms & munitions from other than your cloned so-called arab North Sudan masters. Even as recently as 2015-2016, some creeps like Djibouti even supplied you idiots with arms and munitions. Just go to Khartoum & Kosti, it is all some of you Nuer losers & Shilluks loitering aimlessly with no purpose at all>>>>

          Some of you Nuers & Shilluks with your aimless armed rebellion has becomes a big menace. And I for one would have suggested, if there was a state in our country that is predominantly Nuers or Shilluks, then you fools would have segregated into that state(s) and let other South Sudanese people move on with their own lives. Not every time, everyone would be fighting your aimless armed rebellions>>>

            If people are to be honest to themselves, how many Nuers ministers or MPs are in the so-called ethiopia parliament? Not even one, but when it comes to South Sudan, then you low lives keep throw tantrums like babies to rule others at all costs. Our Nuer cousins, there are some limits on how you idiots messy lifestyles should always be tolerated>>>>
