U.S. Reassures Support for South Sudan

The United States does not provide training, equipment or any other type of support to opposition forces seeking to overthrow the government of South Sudan.Recent assertions in local media that the United States is providing such support are false, baseless and not in the interest of peace in South Sudan. The United States reiterates its long-held view that there is no military solution to the political crisis in South Sudan, and renews its call upon all parties to the conflict to end military operations immediately and comply with the permanent ceasefire in the peace agreement.
