CHINA SEEKS TO BOOST SECURITY IN SOUTH SUDAN

JUBA, — Chinese government on Tuesday donated logistic supplies worth one million U.S. dollars to South Sudan for implementation of security arrangements in the country.

Chinese Ambassador to South Sudan Ma Qiang donated the supplies, which included 20 prefab houses, 1,080 military tents, 10,000 boxes of instant food, 4,300 blankets, 2,000 mosquito nets, 50 diesel generators, 10 solar generators, 500 electric fans, and 500 flashlights.

Ma said the donation followed a request extended by the government of South Sudan at the end of last year and would help facilitate the transitional security arrangements by the Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (JMEC), the body which oversees the implementation of the peace deal and Joint Military Ceasefire Commission (JMCC).

“I am very glad to see that through the coordination of JMEC and JMCC, a distribution plan of these materials has been made. We hope that a fair and effective distribution of the donation could be carried out to bring those materials to proper areas,” Ma said.

The Chinese envoy said China will always remain committed as a true friend and sincere partner for the world’s youngest nation as Juba embarks on reconstruction.
