Abdallah Goc, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, received Annalena Baerbock, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Federal Republic of Germany, during her visit to South Sudan. Minister Baerbock’s visit aims to enhance bilateral relations and strengthen cooperation between the two nations.

During her time in South Sudan, Minister Baerbock will meet the leadership as well as visit the refugee camp, where she will personally witness the situation of Sudanese refugees who have sought shelter in South Sudan due to the ongoing conflict in Sudan.
