South Sudan’s Kiir urges troika countries to offer financial aid


October 26, 2016 (JUBA) - The South Sudanese President, Salva Kiir has appealed to the Troika countries to provide the financial assistance needed for his government in the implementation of the August 2015 peace agreement, instead of advocating for punitive measures, which could undermine the country’s reconciliation efforts.

A presidential aide told Sudan Tribune on Wednesday that Kiir discussed several issues with Norway’s foreign minister during the latter’s visit to Juba.

"One important point was the need for the international community, particularly the members of the troika countries to provide financial assistance to help with the implementation of the peace agreement. This was very important as you know troika countries are part of the IGAD-Plus. They played a key role during the negotiation and promised to provide financial assistance during the implementation process," the aide, who preferred anonymity, disclosed.

"The other item which was discussed is the need for the international community to cooperate and work with the current government of national unity," he added.

Also discussed, the official said, was the issue of armed groups operating with the knowledge of or taking advantage of porous border lines between Sudan and South Sudan.

"This third was very important because it has been one of the contentious issues which has not been allowing full cooperation in the implementation of security arrangements between Sudan and us (South Sudan) because the issue of armed groups. Sudanese government thinks those fighting them, particularly the SPLM-N are still attached to us, which is not true. They have de-linked themselves from us soon after secession on July 9th, 2011", further explained the presidential aide.

"On our side, we believe, and this is not just assumption, it is with strong evidences that Sudan provides to militia groups who are there to destabilize the country and cause havoc. These people are trained, hosted and provided with all types of military weapons and logistics to execute their plans in the country. The international community knows this but they chose to keep quiet and instead continue to believe what Sudanese government tells them. so this needs a key country to play a role in helping the leaderships of the two countries to identifying where there is a problem and try to resolve it amicably", he stressed.

Norway’s foreign affairs minister, Borge Brenda was received at Juba international airport by his South Sudanese counterpart, Deng Alor Kuol.

Brenda discussed with him and his host bilateral matters and what South Sudan government was doing with regards to implementation of the peace agreement.

Brenda told the state-owned SSBC, he was in South Sudan to assess the humanitarian situation to see what possible assistance his country can provide.

He did not, however, say the kind of assistance his government would provide.

Meanwhile, South Sudan’s foreign minister affairs, appreciated the visit of his Norwegian counterpart, urging the Troika country to consider extending their support from humanitarian to developmental assistance.

    Salva Kiir has appealed to the Troika countries to provide the financial assistance needed for his government in the implementation of the August 2015 peace agreement. I really laugh at him, because Salva made the agreement collapse and no way for him to request financial assistance and i think he want money for his pocket because he lot all South Sudan money and now his pocket remains zero balanc

    Why would the Troika countries give money to save a corrupt dictator who provides unconstitutional government.

    The Troika should save their money. They should start punitive sanctions to force Kiir to keep the peacentre agreement he signed with the man he meant to murder.

    Aid? For what? South Sudanese do not what money but hope, safety and peace that kiir has stolen. Instead of providing health care, education, stable economy, road infrastructure and water, kiir and his friends stole everything for personal use and to kill south sudanese. He can not be trusted with money, leave alone, the lives of his own people.

      Why would he ask for money from the internaitional community whilst fighting them at the same time? Till date the protection force is not deployed due to the his carelessnesses! If Torika provides aid to this murderous dictator then they have taken sides. Kiir has lost legitimacy in South Sudan, he reduced himself from a president to a tribal chief!

      first Riek dogs must know one thing. Riek is mass murderer and corrupt. so he is out of equation. Kiir should be ashamed of himself for begging Troika for assistance. you know america and british have intention against south sudan, therefore do you really need assistance from those devil no. you should have diversified the economy when oil prices were good but you failed to do so.

      Akuma and SPLA/M-IG
      Is Kiir mentally disturbed or challenge? someone close to him should advise him to bring back money he has stolen before asking for more. he should have come and tell people that here is the money i have stolen than asking for more
      Is Kiir thinking and taking troika countries as a father to him? real madness dearly
