Museveni Meets Taban Deng, Appeals for Dialogue
President Yoweri Museveni on Tuesday held a meeting with the visiting 1st Vice-President of South Sudan, Gen. Taban Deng Gai.
Taban Deng is in Uganda for the first time since he dramatically replaced Dr. Riek Machar in August 2016 when the latter fled Juba after a deadly fight inside the presidential palace known as J1.
According to a statement released by State House to ChimpReports, the two leaders met at demonstration farm in Kyityerera, Mayuge district in Busoga Sub-Region, where they discussed bilateral issues affecting Uganda and South Sudan.
“I have had a long discussion with the Vice President of the Republic of South Sudan in areas of transport, electricity and peace for South Sudan,” Museveni said.
South Sudan is biggest export destination for Ugandan goods since she gained autonomy in 2005 and from Khartoum administration in 2011.
The Standard Gauge Railway will be the first rail connection between Uganda and South Sudan. Currently the two nations are connected by road and air.
Museveni appealed to his visitor that peace is bedrock of economic development and the young nation should embrace dialogue to address the current political turmoil that has displaced about 3 million people internally and to neighboring nations.
“I call upon the people of South Sudan that the only political way is peace, dialogue and to address all other areas for support.”
Uganda deployed UPDF in South Sudan immediately when the war broke out in the neighbor in December 2013.
UPDF withdrew after the peace agreement that put in place a Transitional Government of National Unity.

The unity government however collapsed only after two months and war is still going on in many parts of South Sudan.
