Top U.S. Official Rebukes 'Selfish' South Sudan Leaders for Delay
"The international community is sick and tired" of the government failure to provide services, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Tibor Nagy warned in a sharp rebuke to the leaders in South Sudan. Following a visit to the South Sudanese capital, Nagy held a teleconference with reporters in Khartoum, capital of neighboring Sudan. "The elites need to get to the point of serving their own people instead of their own selfish interests." Citing the example of Sudan, Nagy said he told the leaders in South Sudan "there is no reason why they cannot go ahead" with forming a unity government by the agreed February 22 deadline" even before settling their difference on key issues.
