A statement from the National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) on the intervention of South Sudan state into the domestic affairs of the Sudan.
The government of Sudan has not seized extending white hands in support and assistance to the government of South Sudan since the time of secession and at all critical stages it has passed through including the humanitarian assistance to the citizens of the state of south Sudan during the dire circumstances through which their country is passing and Sudan opened up its borders allowing hundreds of thousands of those escaping the flames of kiln of war and hunger but the government of south Sudan responded to this humane attitude by continuing to expand provision of full support , hosting and backing for the Sudanese armed movements as reported and documented by information, including reports by the United Nations.
In this context, as of last Wednesday and until Saturday the 22nd of April, the President of South Sudan and his First Vice President along with a number of executive and security establishment leaders, to hold intensive meetings with the leaders of the so-called Northern Sector in Juba. The information leaked from those meeting affirmed that they push for the prolongation of the war in Sudan.
We were surprised how a President and the First Vice President of a country-despite the spreading war in their country and despite its witnessing food shortage that hits all areas of the country, have not maintained as objective a focus on efforts to resolve their internal affairs but, rather, work to set ablaze the flame of sedition in our country which endeavors to eclipse the page of war that was fanned by sinful foreign hands.
We, cautioning and drawing attention to this flagrant intervention (in Sudan's domestic affairs), warn the Government of South Sudan and call on it to immediately cease all types and forms of intervention into the internal affairs of our country.
