The President revealed: "We discussed the situation in South Sudan. Glad China is taking interest in this conflict. It tends to take good direction on African issues."

President Museveni tipped: "The warring groups must hold negotiations aimed at two things, holding elections and reforming the security sector."

He added: "They push the pseudo ideology of sectarianism of tribes and yet this is detrimental to the people's wellbeing. Force can't solve the conflict."

South Sudan is under the leadership of Salva Kiir, however, his former deputy Dr. Riekh Machar disagreed with him in a bloody exchange of fire in Juba and now lives in the bush.
