Israel’s ambassador to South Sudan, Haim Koren (RCJ)

The latest group, accredited on 9 May, according to GoSS, includes Haim Koren for Israel and Gdrun Graf for Austria.

Accordingly, Fre Tesfamichael Tesfatsion of Ethiopia, Kenya’s Cleland Leshore, Zimbabwe’s Edward Kufa Chinza, and Egypt’s Moayad Fathallah Moihammed are the African ambassadors.

Last February, at a special accreditation ceremony held in the State House in Juba, the Ethiopian ambassador along with two European Union (EU) ambassadors, officially delivered his credentials to South Sudan’s president, Salva Kiir.

At the occasion, the Ethiopian Ambassador expressed his commitment to work with South Sudan to promote mutual cooperation and to establish strategic relations, particularly in the areas of economy, peace and security.

Ambassadors from neighbouring Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo, Eritrea, Sudan, and Central African Republic are waiting for official accreditation.

After South Sudan officially proclaimed independence on 9 July 2011, the country has accredited 19 ambassadors. The first two were Alastair McPhail from the UK and Ingrid Osfstad from Norway.

Countries with ambassadors to South Sudan include: China, Germany, US, France, Sweden, Turkey, Netherlands, Denmark, Cuba, Ireland, Israel, Austria and there is an envoy from the EU.

        There is Proverbs which says "not knowing somebody’s perfect character is a disease". These Zionist folks before we could been to their home we love them, but now after we set our feet in it, we have learn that the are one of the worse people toward us (South Sudanese) on this planet. You won’t believe that else you experience that hatred they have toward us yourself brothers.

          Since we our arrival to their country from 2005 until today, we couldn’t see any since of welcoming from their two government as their friends like we toward them. What I am saying the reality. A South Sudanese woman had just been forced to leave while she just had one month old child back home, now people influenced by some government ministers are throwing Molotov cocktail fire into any

            apartments they know inhabited by South Sudanese people. They did these on four places now in Tel-Aviv. These are horrific actions according to me as a witness. In conclusion we can have some diplomatic relations with them, but not because they are the best friend but as merely as two countries business.
            Thanks A lot.

        SATANS and GINI in SOUTH SUDAN are feeling degraded by the admitance of (Israeli Ambassador). Satans believes in ALLAH but they are forced to become unbelievers in ALLAH. Tears and sorrow for Southern Sudanese peoples as they agreed to stop catholic christinity and change to Jewdism.

      To: Akook,
      what did Uganda do rather then the helps did by the Ethiopian? Lot of places where captured by the Ethiopia, like Pochalla, Kurmuk and also Ethiopia became a shell to our refugee and even the formation of SPLA/M. When you comments please, said something which is relevant to our current situations.Ugandan are rubbish.

      And Beshire said if you’re black you’re "insect" So my question becomes: why staying in bed with Beshire when you’re black and he referred to your race as Insect???? If you’re truely of African descend, you’re brainwashed to the point of blindness.

        let’s say that was mistake.
        How many mistakes the jews committed with JESUS? uncountable

        but JESUS was clam and keen.
        Iam not Pro-GOS
        But Bshir is very simple amd modest African president.
        PLS don’t ask me about others.
        Iam ready to stand against ICC and defend Bashir as Sudanese and African based on Sudan constitution of 1956.

          If you’re to stand at the ICC and defend Omar Al Bashiir, then that criminal is definitely going to jail for life. Your best bet is to go back to Darfur, and help your people instead of wasting your time defending the undefendable.

    I wholeheartedly welcome Haim Koren of Israel. Israelis are our natural brothers n sisters for your info.
    Their blood is our blood, n that was why South Sudan President Gen. Salva Kiir made his first international trip/visit to Israel to show them our natural blood relationship, thank them n that we have achieved what we have been fighting for that they have been with us for all half century.

    South Sudan fits in (The Alliance Of The periphery ) coined by Ben Gurion Israel’s first prime minister. However, I don’t understand all the fuzz from those Sub-Arabs of Sudan about the Israeli ambassador’s accreditation to our country since it’s non of their business, and why all the panic to begin with?
