The Ambassador of the United States of America had shown commitment to jointly work with the Country’s leadership to ensure positive progress in the implementation of the peace roadmap.

This development arose during a meeting between the First Vice President of the Republic of South Sudan and the Ambassador of the United States of America to South Sudan.

The meeting deliberated on the recent status of the peace road map signed by the parties who were signatories to the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan and how they should demonstrate commitment to the roadmap to ensure that it is implemented rather than being taken for granted.

Recently, the newly appointed Ambassador for the United States had a fruitful meeting with the First Vice President on the current status of the peace agreement and reiterated ways through which the two governments could jointly work for the progress of the roadmap.

Speaking in a meeting with the First Vice President, Michael J. Adler, the newly appointed Ambassador of the United States to South Sudan reaffirmed his government’s readiness towards supporting the progress and the implementation of the peace roadmap.

 “I was glad to have the opportunity to call today on His Excellency the First Vice President, having presented my credentials to His Excellency the President two weeks ago. This was the first of my calls on their Excellencies the Vice Presidents, which I look forward to concluding, and then [to proceed] with my other meetings with the Honorable Ministers. I welcome the opportunity to work with the leadership of South Sudan to support progress in implementation of the Roadmap and to underscore our support for a better future for the people of South Sudan,” he said.

He reiterated that all the signatories to the agreement should invest much of their efforts to ensure speedy implementation of the roadmap in order to gain trust from partners who would be enthusiastic to aid the country in various ways.

Furthermore, he appreciated the government especially the Office of the First Vice President for having welcomed him to the country to execute duties that have been mandated to him by his country for the sake of the common good between the two governments.

He demonstrated his positive interest to jointly work with the government to ensure that the country experience everlasting peace to boost economic and cultural progress to benefit the entire citizens of South Sudan abroad and within.
