TGoNU not fighting UN-SPLM General Secretary

The remark from the acting SPLM secretary general, already there are people who are accusing the transitional government of national uniting for refusing and fighting the UN and I want to confirm on this great day that this is not an accurate appraisal of our position. The TGoNU has not met to deliberate on the final position taken by the UN Security Council, if there are voices out they are expressing their view on the subject, and these are individuals who do not represent the government and are mandated to speak on behalf of the government. I pledge to you, my people that I will work closely with General Taban Deng Gai and his colleagues in the SPLMA/-IO to implement the ARCSS in letter and spirit in order to rescue our country and people from the unbearable situation in which they are now in.
