MOSCOW, December 15. /TASS/. Russia is ready to help Juba, the capital of South Sudan, settle relations with Sudan, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a meeting with South Sudanese counterpart Barnaba Marial Benjamin on Monday.
“We consider your visit timely. It will allow us to exchange views on issues of mutual interest,” Lavrov said.
“We seek to develop bilateral relations. We have nothing to boast in this field, but there are prospects,” he said.
“Stability is indispensable” to develop the dialogue. “We want the friendly South Sudanese people to overcome the existing difficulties. We want to hear your assessments on what steps you're taking to normalize the situation,” Lavrov said.
“We want to learn what we can do for the final settlement with your northern neighbor,” he said.
Barnaba stressed South Sudan’s drive for strengthening cooperation with Russia.
