On July 4, H.E. Amb. MA Qiang met with Hon. Denay Jock Chagor, Governor of Jonglei State. During the meeting, they discussed bilateral exchanges at sub-national level between China and South Sudan and expressed their commitment to enhancing friendship between the two peoples. Mr. MA Wenjun, Deputy Head of Mission of the Chinese Embassy, and Hon. Gatwech Koak Nyuon, Secretary-General of Jonglei State Government, attended the meeting.

Amb. MA said that China and South Sudan are true friends and good partners. The bilateral cooperation between the two countries has yielded fruitful results and multilateral cooperation has become increasingly closer. As the largest state in South Sudan, Jonglei State has a vast territory, rich resources and beautiful scenery. It plays an important role in South Sudan's peace process and economic and social development. China attaches great importance to deepening friendly relations with all states in South Sudan, including Jonglei State, and is willing to strengthen exchanges and cooperation in areas such as flood relief, education, health, agriculture, and capacity building, and support Jonglei State to develop its economy and improve people's livelihood within its capacity.

Hon. Denay Jock Chagor appreciated China's support to South Sudan in the United Nations and other multilateral occasions, and stressed that China does not attach any political conditions to the assistance to South Sudan. The Jonglei State Government attaches great importance to developing relations with China, as it has benefited a lot from the cooperation between South Sudan and China, and is willing to continue to deepen sub-national cooperation for the friendship between the two countries.

The Embassy also handed over a batch of office furniture to Jonglei State government.
