President Yoweri Museveni Thursday afternoon met with his South Sudan counterpart, Salva Mayardit Kaiir.
The meeting took place at State House Entebbe in presence both delegations from Uganda and South Sudan.
President Kiir briefed his host on the progress of implementation of the Peace Agreement, indicating that it was largely on course with the exception of a few issues that needed to be resolved.
One such issue, he observed, was the disagreement over some state and district boundaries.
Responding, President Museveni advised that the leaders should not be consumed by fights over boundaries; instead they should channel their efforts towards improving their people’s welfare and incomes.
“It does not matter what state or district you are in. It won’t change much if you are poor. What is important is to work towards eradicating poverty and improving your income,” said President Museveni.
He, however, added that if they must, it would be best to follow the colonial boundaries for both internal and inter-state demarcations in order to ensure security.
Museveni has in the previous two months, ever since the closure of the Rwandan Border, met leaders from; Kenya (twice), DRC and now South Sudan.
