The Presidential Press Unit would like to inform the public that the meeting held yesterday between His Excellency, President Salva Kiir Mayardit and the First Vice President Dr. Riek Machar Teny did not end in deadlock as reported by some media houses.
While the two leaders did not come to an agreement in the meeting yesterday, the consensus among the parties to meet at a later date was a positive commitment to resolve the issues at hand in the spirit of cooperation. Therefore, any attempt to portray this as an impasse threaten to jeopardize the spirit of the meeting.
Furthermore, given the keen public interest in the outcome of yesterday’s meeting, it is important that our duty to inform should not be overtaken by the urge to sensationalise issues of national importance. In recognition of this, the Presidential Press Unit urges the media professionals particularly, media staff in the Office of the First Vice President to be mindful of their responsibilities towards peace and stability in our country.
His Excellency the President is committed to the full implementation of the Agreement in letter and spirit the statement from. Pres secretary Lily Adhieu Manyiel office extended to Thejubamirror news Desk .
