Salva Kiie, the leader of war torn South Sudan has vowed to to make peace a priority in the country and promised his govt will silence guns and focus on reconciliation, forgiveness and harmony.
Daniel Awet Akot the Presidential Adviser on Military Affairs, said the South Sudanese leader welcomed and lauded efforts made by regional leaders to put the country on the path of peace and tranquility by exploring all possibilities to end the war
“Peace has been the top agenda on the table the president from day one. He talks peace every day and I am glad to reiterate that the president continues to explore other ways and emphasise on the importance of pursuing the peace process with all groups fighting the government,” Akot told Sudans Tribune on Monday.
“It is in this context [that] he commended the efforts of President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda and other leaders in the region for their efforts to help find amicable ways to end the war as the first priority”, he added.
“All of us have agreed in our meeting in Kampala to stop the war so that peace returns to the country. We also agreed that those who are still pursuing war as the means of presenting their issues needs to be engaged to denounce violence and join the dialogue process”, he stressed.
It, however, remains unclear what approach South Sudan government intends to use to consolidate efforts to end its conflict.
