As part of her working visit in New York, H.E Jessica Alupo has held a bilateral meeting H.E Hussain Abdulbagi Akol Agang, Vice President of the Republic South Sudan.
The Vice President commended the parties to the revitalized South Sudan Peace Agreement for the progress made so far, singling out the recent graduation of the unified forces.
In August this year, President Museveni attended the graduation ceremony that saw soldiers previously loyal to different parties wall a common front that pledged loyalty to the country.
Uganda had played host to the Entebbe Tripartite agreement in which a cessation of hostilities and a transition process towards general elections within Africa’s youngest country was set in motion.
Her Excellency the Vice President urged the parties to implement the outstanding tasks and pledged Uganda’s continued support to South Sudan as one of the Guarantors in its efforts to implement the agreement.
