Egypt is keen on the stability of South Sudan, Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry stressed Saturday during one-on-one talks with his South Sudanese counterpart Awut Deng Acuil.

Meeting on the sidelines of the 74th session of the UN General Assembly in New York, the two top diplomats discussed means of boosting bilateral ties and issues of mutual interest, the Foreign Ministry’s spokesman, Ahmed Hafez, said.

Shoukry asserted Egypt’s interest in reinforcing its relationship with South Sudan in various fields, in addition to identifying and meeting its needs in the field of building capabilities with the help of the Egyptian Agency of Partnership for Development (EAPD) in Africa.

Shoukry also expressed to Deng Acuil Cairo’s discontent over the prolonged negotiations over the Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, and stressed that pressing ahead with the negotiations and showing good intentions were vital for reaching a fair agreement that protects the water rights and serves the interests of Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia.
