According to a press statement from President Kiir’s office, the two leaders discussed the progress made in the implementation of the Revitalized Peace Agreement and the ways to strengthen bilateral relations between South Sudan and the United States of America.
“H.E, President Salva Kiir Mayardit in his office this Thursday, met with the U.S Special Envoy to South Sudan William Stuart Symington and held a discussion on the progress of the implementation of Revitalized Peace Agreement and the ways to foster the bilateral relations between South Sudan and United States of America.” Read part of the statement from President Kiir’s office.
The meeting was also attended by the Minister of Presidential Affairs Nhial Deng Nhial and the Minister of Foreign affairs and International Cooperation, Hon. Beatrice Khamisa Wani.
Speaking to the media after the meeting, Hon. Beatrice Khamisa Wani said they “discussed amicable ways on how South Sudan and United States of America could work together in resolving issues related to the implementation of the Revitalized Peace Agreement.”
Similarly, the U.S. Special Envoy, Mr. Symington, reiterated that they discussed the progress that has been made and still to be made on the implementation of the Revitalized Peace Agreement.
Symington added that they also discussed the issues of bilateral relations between the two countries.
This comes at a time the United States is holding an African-like elections where President Trump is accusing his opponent, Joe Biden, of stealing his votes among other irregularities; however, the South Sudanese president did not bother to comment on the U.S. elections saying he does not like interferring in other countries’ internal affairs.
U.S. headed into peaceful elections two days ago but so far the border lines between the winners and losers especially between Trump and Biden are still quiet uncertain.
While Joe Biden is narrowly leading and he is positive of winning the election, President Donald Trump is worringly complaining of irregularities and filling lawsuits.
Trump’s campaign teams have filled lawsuits in multiple states and cities including Michigan and Georgia but some of their lawsuits have been thrown out due to lack of evidence.
“They are finding Biden votes all over the place — in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan. So bad for our Country!” Trump wrote in a tweet Wednesday morning.
“They are working hard to make up 500,000 vote advantage in Pennsylvania disappear — ASAP. Likewise, Michigan and others!” he added in a subsequent tweet that Twitter labeled as promoting misinformation about the electoral process.
