South Sudan government has denounced Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) terrorists and marinated that Juba stands with Ethiopian Government.

Information Minister Michael Makuei Lueth dismissed as unfounded reports that South Sudan at anyone time ever facilitated terrorist attacks against the innocent Ethiopians by supporting the notorious rebel forces

“There is an outgoing confusion in the social media on the participation of the government of South Sudan in one way or the other supplying arms to the Ethiopian rebels,” Makuei said.

“There is no way we can work against the government of Ethiopia because the Ethiopian people and the government of Ethiopia have been standing with us and without the Ethiopian people and the government, we wouldn’t have been independent today. There is no way we can say we are supporting the terrorists to overthrow the government in Ethiopia.”

The government spokesperson reiterated that the government of South Sudan stands with the Ethiopian government.

“If there are any individuals who might be selling arms, then these are individuals who might have had their private firearms,” he said. “If they are doing that then this is at their own risk and if the Ethiopian government can get hold of these people then they should be brought to book.”

The Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed recently confirmed that foreign forces have fought alongside the rebel fighters in the battles in the Amhara region.

Thousands of people have died and hundreds of thousands displaced from their homes since fighting erupted in the northern Tigray region in November last year and has continued to date.

Ethiopian soldiers recently recaptured a huge chuck of territory from rebellious Tigrayan fighters, the prime minister’s office said, as a resident in one village told reporters that Tigrayan fighters had left his village.

Gains by the military in Afar and Amhara would be a blow to Tigrayan forces, who had threatened to either advance further southwards through Amhara and march on the capital, or march eastwards and threaten a road linking landlocked Ethiopia to the region’s main port.
