SRSG Haile Menkerios: Ladies and Gentlemen, members of the press corps, thank you for coming here today for this final press conference on the UN’s work in support of the implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement. I will make a few brief opening remarks, and the floor will then be opened to your questions.
One the eve of Southern Sudan’s independence, a top Southern Sudanese official said the people of the region had reached a day they had been struggling for since 1920.
“This has been a very expensive and painful exercise, with over 2.5 million people dead.” Government of Southern Sudan Minister of Information Barnaba Marial Benjamin said today at a Juba press conference.
He added that all would bear witness to history – the transformation of the map of Africa – and the realization of southern people’s dreams -- the Republic of South Sudan.
8 July 2011 - UN Secretary General (SG) Ban Ki-moon arrived in the Southern Sudanese capital of Juba on the eve of independence celebrations for the new Republic of South Sudan.
Accompanied by UN General Assembly President Joseph Deiss and other dignitaries, Mr. Ban was received by Government of Southern Sudan officials and senior UNMIS staff at Juba International Airport.
