South Sudan army has denied reports that it has sent around 4,000 troops to neighboring Ethiopia to help in the country’s military offensive against Tigray region.
Social media reports quoting unnamed sources in the army said President Salva Kiir Mayardit had sent around 4,000 troops to help Ethiopian federal forces in their fight against TPLF.
However, in an exclusive interview with Sudans Post this morning, acting army spokesman, Brigadier-General Santo Domic Chol, denied the claims saying the ongoing unrest in Ethiopia is an internal problem that South Sudan cannot interferes in.
“As far as my office is concerned, there is nothing like that. What I know is that what is happening in Ethiopia is an internal conflict within that country,” Brigadier-General Domic said.
The senior army officer stressed the importance of what he said is positive relationship between South Sudan and Ethiopia, and said his country cannot interfere in Ethiopian issues to pay back the horn of Africa’s help during the liberation struggle
