MOSCOW, June 6 (Itar-Tass) —— The establishment of diplomatic relations between Russia and South Sudan paved the way to mutually advantageous cooperation in all areas, the Foreign Ministry said after Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov and South Sudan’s first Ambassador in Moscow Chol Deng Alack on Wednesday, June 6.
“During the first meeting the ambassador presented copies of his credentials. A number of pressing issues of bilateral relations and regional problems were discussed. It was stressed that the establishment of diplomatic relations on August 22, 2011 between the Russian Federation and the Republic of South Sudan paved the way to mutually advantageous cooperation in various areas,” the ministry said.
The state of South Sudan was founded on July 9, 2011 after the January 9, 2011 referendum, in which the overwhelming majority of people in the southern part of Sudan voted for independence and state sovereignty.
