Juba — The Japanese government has urged Sudan and South Sudan to have trust and resolve the remaining post independence issues to avoid instability in the two states.
Parliamentary Senior Vice-Minister for Foreign Affairs in the government of Japan, Kayuza Shimba said the two states have the potential to solve the problems in Africa but without peace it is difficult. He made these remarks yesterday in a meeting with the minister for Information and Broadcasting, Dr Barnaba Marial Benjamin.
He also confirmed that Japan is ready to do whatever is possible to see South Sudan developing faster noting that all the projects signed with the government of South Sudan will commence in due course.
Meanwhile Dr Benjamin dismissed the entire allegation made against the government saying South Sudan is not for regime change in Khartoum nor is it supporting the rebels in Sudan. He affirmed that the government is committed to peace with Khartoum and ready to finish the remaining outstanding issues. He further urged the Japanese government to persuade Khartoum to implement the popular consultation of Southern Blue Nile and Kordufan to circumvent future accusations.
