Dec 23, 2020 (Thessherald)–The Egyptian government has issued a statement expressing concern over South Sudan’s close diplomatic relations with the government of Qatar, as evidenced by the recent visit of Tut Gatluak Manime, security advisor to President Salva Kiir Mayardit.
“Egypt has followed with great concern Tut Qalwak’s [Gatluak] recent visit to Doha. Qalwak is the security adviser to the president of South Sudan, and his visit has raised suspicions about Qatar’s next moves in the region after the fall of its ally in Sudan, Omar al-Bashir. It seems that Doha is turning to Juba to build new influence there,” the statement said.
“Political sources in Cairo said that Doha was keen during Gatluak’s visit to know the limits reached by relations between Juba and Cairo, and whether or not South Sudan had promised Egypt to let it build a military base on its territory.”
Since 2017, Egypt – along with other Arab countries including Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates, have severed diplomatic ties with Qatar on suspicion of supporting terrorist activities in the region.
