South Sudan Solicits Eritrea to Advise Bashir
By Martin Jada Gabriel, News Agency of South Sudan,
Juba — South Sudan government has urged the government of the Republic of Eritrea to advise President Bashir on the importance of the ongoing talks in Addis Ababa.
The minister for Information and Broadcasting Dr Barnaba Marial Benjamin made this appeal last week while briefing the Eritrean delegation on the current situation of the country. He told the Eritrean delegation that Khartoum government is not genuine in negotiation despite South Sudan's commitment to peace process.
Advisor to Eritrean President, Yemane Ghebreab said Eritrean solidarity to South Sudan will never change until the young nation is strong and prosperous. He told Dr Benjamin that Eritrea's position is to see North and South Sudan peaceful so as to facilitate development in the region.
He further assured south Sudan that the idea of constructing pipeline through Eritrea is possible and there's no problem in that.
