South Sudan, on December 15, 2013, fell into critical political crisis as gunshots broke out in the capital, Juba.

Later, the government accused ex Vice President Riek Machar and several other senior politicians of masterminding a coup attempt.

“There should be peace and security in South Sudan,” Bashir told the press shortly after a closed-door meeting with Kiir.

“We come so that we [Sudan government] can see what we can do …so that we bring peace to South Sudan to our brothers and sisters,” Bashir added.

Bashir also pledged for full protection of South Sudanese refugees displaced to Sudan following the out break of the crisis that has now escalated to several other parts of the country.

At least 1,000 people are reported to have been killed with close to 200,000 other people displaced.

Meanwhile, Kiir welcomed Bashir’s visit saying it confirms “strong relations” between the two countries.
