President of the Republic of South Sudan, Salva Kiir Mayardit, said that the "issue of Sahara is different in its genesis, legal and political background from that of South Sudan,” hailing “Morocco's serious and credible efforts” to reach a political solution to this dispute.

“While considering that the issue of Sahara is different in its genesis, legal and political background from that of South Sudan, H.E. President Salva Kiir Mayardit acknowledges the efforts of the United Nations to reach a political solution to the regional dispute over the Sahara,” said the joint Communiqué published after the official visit of HM King Mohammed VI to South Sudan.

The President of South Sudan also congratulated HM the King for “the reintegration of Morocco within the African Union and hailed the support of the overwhelming majority of African countries to Morocco,” highlighting, in this vein, “Morocco’s role and its effective contribution for the development, the unity and the stability of the continent.”
