British diplomat urges gov’t forces to report to training sites
January 17th 2020 (Nyamilepedia) – A top British diplomat in South Sudan has urged government troops to report to training sites where training of unified forces is taking place.
SPLA-IO had said early this month that government troops were not reporting to training sites raising concerns over the government intention to not send its troops to training sites.
Christ Trott, the British ambassador to South Sudan, said during an interview with the Eye Radio that his government is concerned over the absence of the government troops in the area.
“You have the opposition forces gathering but not enough government forces,” Trott said in interview.
“Our first call as a result of what we saw in the area is to call on everyone – whether it is for logistical reason or it is a political reason, we want the government to ensure that its troops are moving out of their barracks into the training sites,” he continued.
