Angola: Vice-President Receives Letter From Sudanese President for Angolan Counterpart

Luanda — The Vice-President of the Republic, Manuel Domingos Vicente, received on Wednesday in Luanda a message from the South Sudan's President, Salva Kir, for the Angolan Head of State, José Eduardo dos Santos.

The letter was handed over by the South Sudanese President's special envoy, Emmanuel Lewilla, who said at the end of the audience that the content of the letter is related to a request of help to Angola, as member of the AU Peace and Security Council, so as to resolve the existing political disagreement between the South Sudan and North Sudan.

"We hope that Angola may help us because we wouldn't like to have a conflict with our neighbour of North Sudan and we ask for the intervention of the Angolan authorities whereas before a war breaks out ", said the special envoy of the South Sudanese President.

He explained that the government of his country has some problems with North Sudan, due to the nonfulfilment of accords signed by both countries and these constraints must be resolved in a peaceful way.

Speaking about the decision made by the President Salva Kir, who suspended on Tuesday 29 July ministers of his government, Emmanuel Lewilla said that this fact happened because the Sudanese Head of State wants to have a government with 19 functional officials that are up to resolve problems of the people.

South Sudan has been independent for two years.
