South Sudan launches its draft foreign policy


October 3, 2014 (JUBA) – South Sudan on Thursday launched its draft foreign policy ahead of the anticipated formation of a national unity government next month.

South Sudan’s new Foreign Affairs minister, Awut Deng Achuil (Gurtong)

The draft policy, officials said during the launch, will help in guiding the diplomatic and foreign affairs issues of the world’s youngest nation.

The policy will be submitted to the council of ministers for approval.

Speaking during the ambassador’s forum in Juba, Vice President James Wani Igga called for the restoration of the country’s image.

“You should restore our good image so that regional and international communities can regain the confidence and to make our country attractive for investors across the world,” said Igga.

He urged diplomats to ensure sanctions on South Sudan were lifted.

On her part, the Foreign Affairs minister, Awut Deng Acuil said the country’s diplomacy and foreign policy needs to be more effective.

“It will allow us cope and match with the change currently spreading through the whole region and the entire world,” she said.

Several ambassadors attended the conference held under the theme, “Empowering and enhancing the foreign policy of the reconstituted TGONU”.

        South Sudan is screwed. Most cadres in foreign ministry and embassies have no idea what diplomats are. Some are just recruited for foreign embassies based on cronyism while the real career diplomats are left out. South Sudan needs a tough foreign minister to toughen out the recruitment of ambassadors on merits and allegiance to South Sudan and the South Sudanese people and be bold enough>>>

          to recall ambassadors who go and behave like oppositions to the government they supposed to represent in foreign capitals. Fellows, sometimes some leadership steps have to be taken. Mr. Salva Kiir ways of always trying to appease every piece of trash had been abused big times by some losers and this is why South Sudan is now in this bad state. Even during our bush years, some strict protocols>>>

The Ministry of foreign affairs should now be aware about ’friendly countries or hostile countries to South Sudan’ and how to handle those countries and South Sudan’s interests in those countries.

              always far away from foreign affairs ministry list as friendly countries. All the European countries have never wish South Sudan and the South Sudanese people bad luck, except the UK. The US and the UK just want South Sudan to be one of their ’over sea protectorate’ and this has ’switches off’ many South Sudanese who just don’t want to be anyone ’protectorate anymore’.

                are guarding their dwindling empire and would want to recruit more countries to their dwindling empire. But their usual ’regime changes’ of other people elected leaders and replace them them with their puppets/stooges whom then go and micro-managed them in their capitals has ’backfired pretty badly’.

There criminals in the US and other countries who always link to our country and our people to that ’prostitutes infested country’ And of course, we have bunch of our losers who always take our small issues to hotels, brothels and bars of Adis Ababa. And so, the criminals have accustomed themselves that South Sudan>>>

                        during our genuine war of independence, our ’Nuers ke Nyantoc, Shilluks (Chollos) and others were in bed these vermin. They were welcomed back in 2006 and of course they went back to Khartoum in 2013----. And they come back again lie through their treasonous teeth later that they were fighting for South Sudan’s independence just like everyone else. And get way with it.>>>

These traitors were the ones who ’back-stabbed the SPLA’ marched to Khartoum in 1991 and put our liberation war back by more ten (10) years. I personally don’t know what ’dirts’ do the cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan have over Mr. Riek Machar & Lam Akol>>>>

        James Wani Igga is like a small Chihuahua poodle dog that can pocketed into a small woman’s handbag 👜 and carried along wherever the lady goes. He’s a bootlicker. What foreign policy do these scoundrels have? They think foreign policy is akin to "foreign exchange" where they will have free £,€ or $.
