President Museveni, Kiir discuss South Sudan conflict

Friday 22nd August 2014

President Yoweri Museveni met and held a consultative meeting with President Salva Kiir of South Sudan at State House Entebbe.

The two leaders discussed bilateral issues between their two countries including the conflicts in South Sudan where an estimated 10,000 South Sudanese have been killed and more than one million displaced since violence broke out in the country eight months ago.

The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) warned in a presidential statement earlier this month that it is prepared, in consultation with IGAD and the African Union (AU) to impose targeted sanctions “against those who take action that undermines the peace, stability, and security of South Sudan, including those who prevent the implementation of these agreements”
President Kiir who was accompanied by Minister of Presidency, Mr. Awan Guol, Minister for Transport, Road and Bridges Mr. Koong Donhier and Government officials from South Sudan was received on arrival at Entebbe International Airport by State Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr. Okello Oryem and Head of the Public Service, Mr. John Mitala.

Others at the Airport who received him included Commander Air Force, Maj. Gen. Sam Turyegenda, Inspector General of Police, Gen. Kale Kayihura, Commissioner General of Prisons, Dr. Johnson Byaibashaijja and South Sudan Deputy to Ambassador to Uganda, Ms. Sarah Victor.
