March 10, 2018 (JUBA) – South Sudan has not officially submitted an application to join the Arab League, but requested to be an observer member, Mawien Makol, the foreign affairs ministry’s spokesperson has clarified.

The Egyptian Middle East news agency (MENA) earlier reported that South Sudan has formally applied to join the League of Arab state.

"The application will be presented to the Arab League Council at the level of foreign ministers in its 149th session at the headquarters of the General Secretariat of the League (in Cairo) on Wednesday," MENA reported, while quoting unnamed diplomatic source.

But Makol said the war-torn nation has not officially submitted application to the bloc

“We have not applied to join the Arab League and what we requested for was to be an observer member,” he told Eye Radio Saturday.

The League of Arab States or the Arab League is a voluntary association of countries whose peoples are mainly Arabic speaking or where Arabic is an official language.

Its aims are to strengthen ties among member states, coordinate their policies and direct them towards a common good. The bloc presently has 22 members, including Palestine, which the League regards as an independent state.

The highest body of the league is the Council, composed of representatives of member states, usually foreign ministers, their representatives or permanent delegates. The Council meets twice a year, in March and September, and may convene a special session at the request of two members.

The idea of the Arab League was mooted in 1942 by the British, who reportedly wanted to rally Arab countries against the Axis powers. However, the league did not take off until March 1945, just before end of World War II.

        South Sudan interest first, what’s the connection between Israel and South Sudan? We’re not against Israeli state in the first place, so why would Israel run after South Sudan, looking for our position? As long we’re beating terrorists organizations called IO that sponsored by Khartoum, then we’re totally fine. Find the difference topic.

            Even these tailless monkeys don’t understand why they wan to join the Arab League in the first place. They think it’s like joining a football or singing club. What could be the economic, geo-strategic, socio-cultural interest of joining this jellaba league? Do these jienges think that would be a faster way to getting U$?

                I wish all jienges were like you; doing clean business and not stealing from state coffers. If only Jienges did like what you suggest, all SS would be drinking organic milk "Made from pure jieng cows SS". But all simply squatting in Equatoria or dashed to their jellaba masters in Sudan. Maybe petrodollars from your Arab League relatives will help you 😁.

          Be bold and frank. Say the interests of Dinka come first and not interests of all South Sudanese. Flip flopping in decision is due to lack of confidence in the people you call subjects that you kill at without fuss.

        When you lie it makes my blood boils. Give us your evidences that Israel told South Sudan his actions/utterances are confused. This is very white lie. What should we expect from IO members other than lying. It is very hard for you guys to see South Sudan is standing there to be seen while you are in Diasporas and REFUGEE camps. Who is to be blamed for you to be homeless? IO.

          This jienge spokesman is a congenital liar. SS and Chad have formally applied to be beggars by their jellaba masters. I suggest, EAC must expel SS which is trying to make love to two lovers concurrently. Going to the Arab that humiliated you for more than 100 is just being a cheap bitch, the legendary "mor girschen"

            I can understand your point about this issue, but when you attack the tribe called Dinka, it makes you look simple. Dinka liberated you from fake Arabs, so what the hell do you want them to do for you? You were hiding during our struggle and you were not to been anywhere, but you pop up after CPA with a little education you begged people to help you with, please shut up.

              There is no difference between you people with Jallabas when one rules out the complexion of your skins. In fact some Jallabas look like you, behave like you in all respect. You liberated no body, you looted political power from South Sudanese for greed and arrogance. Same behaviour Jallabas had then.

        There are two types of human beings who have solo attachment to their nation: merchants and nomads. That is the reason why nomads and merchants are constantly on the move. They have no nationalism at all and think of money and livestock. This should be a reminder that these tailless monkeys go where bling bling 💍 and moo moo 🐮 is.

    Dear Kush Native, and South South, thank you for your true patriotism. South Sudan is an independent Republic and has the sovereign power and can sign an agreement with any country, any organisation, any persons including satan or God and no body can say anything. Let these little poor souls who wish South Sudan and its innocent people death and destruction day and night know this plain truth.

      Sovereignty is not a blueprint to political recklessness. Perhaps the jienges are simply stooges of Arabs and may be used to spy on Israelis or perhaps as Israeli tools to spy on the Arabs. Who knows? Why would Jienge slaves join such a league, against which they claim, fought? Something is fundamentally wrong here.

The Dinka are tall brave hardworking proud and patriotic people. After all this God damned hatred was planted by Arabs towards the Dinka because the Great proud and brave Dinka fucked the hell out of them in SSudan.

    Riek Machar and Lam Akol are Arab stooges masterminded and supported by Arabs in Khartoum to spoil the good taste of an independent South Sudan which was a shame to the Arabs the same way they were busy in the bush spoiling the liberation struggle so that the fucking mulattoes in Khartoum could not be defeated militarily. If I were in the position of Salva Kiir by now I would have castrated them.

    It was difficult for even Sudanese Muslims to join Arab League, and I am not sure how it will be easiest for Southerners who voted very strongly to quit the Old Sudan and the same Arab League in January, 2011!!!
    Voting for independence from Sudan was voting to opt out of Arab League!!! Did we understand.
