LONDON, United-Kingdom, February 5, 2014/African Press Organization (APO)/ — South Sudan, the World’s youngest nation is facing some challenging times. The most immediate question is whether the agreement on a cessation of hostilities (http://bit.ly/1bqiwFn), signed on January 23 between the Government of the Republic of South sudan (GoRSS) (http://www.goss.org) and the sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM/A) in Opposition, will bring an end to the fighting that has killed tens of thousands and has displaced hundreds of thousands of people since mid-December.
But at least as important as the developments on the ground is the way that the conflict in South Sudan is analyzed, framed and acted upon by the South Sudanese themselves, foreign affairs policymakers, international activists, newspapers and the international public. That analysis, those frames and those actions will shape how the conflict is addressed, perpetuated or entrenched.
In this regard, the Foreign Affairs Minister South Sudan Hon Dr. Barnaba Marial Benjamin will on the 12th of February address the international press on the latest development in South Sudan outlining the next crucial steps for his Government to restore peace and assure investments in South Sudan.
His message will be on:
– The government’s commitment to reconciliation and healing process as bedrock of stability.
– perspective on security, legal reforms and nation building
– Importance of regional and international actors for peace and development for south sudan.
– Reassuring businesses on security to Investment.
