June 5, 2020 (JUBA,) — South Sudan’s foreign ministry denied reports claiming that Juba had given green light for Egypt to establish a military base near the Ethiopian border.

"The ministry of foreign affairs and international cooperation hereby denies in the strongest terms possible, the information which has been circulated in the social media that the government of South Sudan has agreed to Egyptian request to build a military base in Pagak," reads a statement issued on Wednesday.

Relations between Egypt and Ethiopia are strained by the disagreement over the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) particularly the filling of its reservoir.

"There is nothing of that kind, no agreement has been reached whatsoever to allocate a piece of land for Egyptian military base in the territory of the Republic of South Sudan," said the South Sudanese government distancing itself from any suspicion.

Juba further said the “spurious allegation” was forged and disseminated by the enemies of peace who seek to create tensions for the South Sudanese government with the neighbouring countries.

Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan are expected to resume technical meetings to finalize talks on the safety of the dam, environmental issues, data exchange facilitation and the resolutions of disputes.

    Even though the former PM has been supporting Riek Machar and his rebellion against South Sudan nation thus, we will not accept to fueling the issue of Ethiopian Dam construction and the Egyptian interests of water Nile. These countries are our best friends and we will not allow a Military base in South Sudan. The Ethiopian government should not listen to those created rumours about Egyptian base

      Confrontation is here Mr. Mayendit. Here in my home state of Jonglei, we would do our best to bomb these Abeshas (prostitutes out of our Gambella region), Kenya, Djibouti into Red Sea and be done with with them, reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM. Do you fools know that your damned Abesh (so-called ethiopia) is a landlocked country?>>>>

Again Mr. Mayendit just because you always read here on SUDAN TRIBUNE that Bor people are in Nimule from online trolls like jubaone, the Rhino or Eastern. How many Bor Dinkas/Jenges are there in Numule chap?>>>

When Bor South youths invaded ’Pi-bor in 2017’, the loads of NGOs screamed at the top of their evil lungs that Bor Dinkas/Jiengs are using the "military to kill the Murles simply because they are Murles".>>>

                    Did you not recently complain that Pibor was taken away from your Bor people by the Murle? So, if you were forced to lose such a large piece of territory, why should people be surprised that your people fled to Nimule and live there as belligerent, arrogant squatters? The people of Mading Bor are the ones that created terms like "foolish majority" for Bahr el Ghazal...

                      ..And it was your people that tricked the people of Aliap out of their cattle with playing cards. Criminal elements within your community sold children to the Murle. And since when has anyone ever feared Mading Bor for you to incessantly issue laughable threats agaist Twic-east, Nuer and Murle? You also make threats against the United States, Britain, Israel and Ethiopia. Get professional help.

                      I had never ever complained about the Murles taking over over our Pibor loser. what I said was that our people left Pibor area in 1920th to "main Nile Course since our cattle didn’t get enough water in Pibor and other seasonal Nile Rivers". The Murles just came in from today’s South Abesh (so-called ethiopia) and occupied our Pibor, Mac Abol>>>

          Mabior Garang is a mindless, myopic traitor; he and his mother should NEVER have moved against Salva Kiir with that traitor Riek Machar; these people have weakened the people of Twic-east in every way and we now deserve to be barred from the political environment for decades to come. It’s a good thing, because a lot of my people were living vicariously through Dr. John Garang de Mabior

            Mr. Khent
            I agree completely about Mabior Garang’s attitude. Him and his mother Nyandeng have betrayed the whole Twic East communities. The South Sudanese people are looking for answers specifically, the way Mabior Garang act like he is not a Son of late Chairman Dr.John Garang. He is trying to destroy chances of others Twic politicians who might be seeking leadership in South Sudan.

              Mabior Garang and his mother are operating under the delusion that the SPLM/A is their birthright; their political maneuvers have been entirely selfish and this is why they see no problems working with a traitor that joined Khartoum and massacred their people. The people of Twic-East have had their turn and should now just be in supporting roles.

    South Sudan is a very funny country in which you can deny the facts today and the next days the facts will reveal itself. Salva Kiir’s administration has to be very careful at this time around. Ethiopia will not entertain these behaviors the Juba are displaying. Juba must stay neutral like Khartoum and the rests of the surrounding Nile River

        The whole agreement to allow Egypt army into South Sudan soils were initially signed in 2018, but the deals were uphold by the South Sudan government, because they want the finals agreement to be finalized after the formation of the nation unity.

    I wonder how much were we bothered by the construction of "Aswan High Dam"in 1960s. If it benefited the Egyptians and the rest along the Nile also need similar benefits from the Nile, is that wrong, says who? Look at how Egypt treat S. Sudanese in Cairo and without Ethiopia, there won’t be SPLA. It’s obvious the target isn’t Ethiopia only but the rest of us (S. Sudan, Uganda and Sudan) doing thing

    livelihoods project alone the Nile. We know that if Ethiopian cannot be allowed to use the rivers in her own territory like did Egyptian, then the same logic will be used against us later. We cannot afford to be neutral. We stand together with Ethiopian or we will each fall separately. Each nation has its rights within its borders. Act 17:26
