The grouping of nations are based on international agreement. Also some nations are rule with consideration of the outside world.  South Sudan joining any worldly governments carry the agreements that are done by the institutions of the democratic nations that shared common interests and that are guided by certain ideology.

In the case of republic of South Sudan, there are international obligations that would have made President Salva Kiir to keep Hon. Nhial Deng Nhial in executive powers for the purposes of South Sudan international missions in world affairs.  One of them are international accreditation. When South Sudan got the independence, there were never international awareness between Sudan, and South Sudan, therefore the two nations remained synonymous with each other in the worldly matters, and some nations in international arenas have no direction about the where about of the republic of South Sudan.

In the second category, the admission of South Sudan in the international communication agency that branded nations with international dialing standards of electronic communications still confused Sudan with South Sudan over the reasons of lacking the know how about South Sudan from Sudan though the two nations have different communication linkages. Thirdly joining any international organization carry the element of peace as priority number one followed by the stability of a nation that have undergone several democratic transitions and whose sovereignty and territorial integrity are well defined and also a member of a United Nations.

South Sudan fragile situations carry the fourth message of what President Salva Kiir would have done by keeping Hon. Nhial Deng Nhial in presidency to educated the world about some situations of conflicts in South Sudan and what are the ways forwards in term of democracy in the aftermath of civil wars in some worldly forum.  In the fifth agenda, South Sudan being a tip of iceberg in global affairs would have been a point of leadership decisions to make the GOSS democratized among the community of nations by defining the national obligations and eventually to change the popular opinions of South Sudan being a war zone both domestically and internationally. Under the bureaucratic system policy makers are people who formulate the two:

External and internal foreign policy of a nation. The sixth agenda would have been the executive powers under President Salva Kiir to make SPLM party popular among South Sudan and outside under the ruling SPLM political bureau to whom Hon. Nhial Deng Nhial is a member since liberation struggle and whose contributions carry major impacts. Besides Hon. Nhial Deng Nhial would have helped in relating the SPLM with the worldly Governments in the example of the first world and third world nations.


Over the sovereignty of South Sudan there are incidents where a country that have small surface of land and also a landlocked nation can survived when the national ideology defined good intentions.  South Sudan with unclear borders demarcation with neighboring nations would have been the opportunity Presidency would have capitalized on by investing in amateur politicians with history of public diplomacy that can well defined  South Sudan in relations to other nations and outside world.  Also in legal perspective some norms that governed the national security are well defined not only in the land but also in the ports of entry into the country and the expert advises on the foreign missions a broads.


In conclusion the GOSS commitment of implementing peace agreement under the TGoNU would have also been committed to every peace implementation not only in the government but also all South Sudanese citizen. Among several other agreement President Salva Kiir would have keep Hon. Nhial Deng Nhial in changing the international perceptions of South Sudan being known of nothing else but war zone. Secondly the SPLM vision in some years to come according to Dr. John Garang carry visions of taking town to people. In the category Hon. Nhial Deng Nhial carry the imaginations of South Sudan developmental strategy with all the coherent knowledge about the intentions of where South Sudan can partnered with based on the outlook of the world. There are special mentions of Hon. Nhial Deng Nhial in popular opinions. South Sudanese in both diaspora and in the country recommended Hon. Nhial Deng Nhial as the emblem of reunifying South Sudanese especially this time around of implementing several peace agreements under the legitimacy of the TGoNU in South Sudanese road maps to absolute peace and stability.

Finally, since South Sudan got the independence there are high chances that dialogue among South Sudanese can contribute into policy making that can change the whole country. On personal recommendation the Upper Nile, Equatoria, and Bar el Gazel regions besides South Sudan administrate areas of South Blue Nile, South Kordofan and Abyei, South North referendums strategy carry international campaign that President Salva Kiir should put into consideration that South Sudan sovereignty are not yet secured. Several peace agreements that Hon. Nhial Deng Nhial signed carry the agreement of South Sudanese, policy makers, the international advocacy group, civil society, and the objective of the SPLM in relations to South Sudan we all envisioned. Being prince of peace, President Salva Kiir would have keep him in his executive for the purposes of peace implementation and for the reference of the SPLM visions.
