Foreign Minister of the Republic of South Sudan Nhial Deng Nhial said, on Friday at UN headquarters, that his country does not recognize the existence of «SADR», adding that President Salva Kiir Mayardit had sent a letter to King Mohammed VI on this matter.

«In this letter, President Salva Kiir Mayardit had informed the Sovereign, in a categorical way, that the Republic of South Sudan has never had and is not maintaining a relation with this separatist entity (SADR). We fully respect the sovereignty and the territorial integrity of the Kingdom of Morocco», said the foreign minister of South Sudan in a statement to the press after a meeting with Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita, in the presence of Head of Intelligence Agency (DGED) Mohamed Yassine Mansouri.

«We do not support any entity, whatever its name, which wants to be separated from Morocco», he said, underlining that his country supports a settlement to the Sahara issue, under the auspices of the United Nations.

Nhial Deng Nhial also expressed the gratitude of the Republic of South Sudan to the King «for all what the Sovereign has done for his country», noting that the visit of the monarch in South Sudan was a great achievement for the people of South Sudan.

He recalled that during this Royal visit, the sovereign visited the Royal Armed Forces Field Hospital in Juba which falls within the framework of a humanitarian mission for the benefit of the people of the Republic of South Sudan.
