Good luck to South Sudan !

President Faure Gnassingbé sent a congratulatory message, on Saturday, to his counterpart in South Sudan, Salva Kiir (photo), whose country became independent. 

In this letter, Mr. Gnassingbé wishes the new member of the African community and hopes to develop friendship and cooperation between Togo and the Republic of South Sudan.

The independence comes after more than 50 years of war - broken by a lull of several years - between the southern rebels and successive governments in Khartoum, a conflict that devastated the region and rendered millions dead. 

The Security Council of the United Nations passed a unanimous resolution, on Friday, establishing a UN mission in southern Sudan (Minuss) equipped with 7000 soldiers, 900 civilians and experts to help build the country and its security. The 54th African country will join the United Nations in mid-July.
