Egypt's Ambassador to Juba Mohamed Qaddah affirmed Cairo’s support of the peace treaty entitlements in South Sudan during a meeting with the new governor of South Sudan’s Upper Nile state Abudhok Kur on Friday.
In 2018, South Sudan's President Salva Kiir signed a landmark agreement with rebel factions in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa to end the decades-long war that claimed the lives of tens of thousands.
During the meeting, Qaddah affirmed Egypt’s support of the efforts to consolidate security and stability in South Sudan.
Qaddah reviewed Kur’s vision for stability, social reconciliation, and reconstruction and development efforts in the Upper Nile state.
The two sides discussed cooperation between Egypt and the state in various fields, including the management of water and irrigation sources, water treatment, education and energy.
Egypt has been a major supporter to the peace agreement in South Sudan.
President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi visited Juba in November last year, where he reiterated Cairo’s "full and unlimited support for the efforts exerted by Sudan's government to achieve peace and stability nationwide.”
