Letter from the Ambassador

Welcome to the official website of the Embassy of the Republic of South Sudan in Washington D.C.

In January 9, 2011, an overwhelming 98.3 % of registered South Sudanese voters casted their ballots in favour of secession from Sudan after two decades of protracted civil war.

On July 9, 2011 South Sudan officially announced its independence from Sudan and became the newest country in the world, ranked No. 193 in the United Nations. Despite the challenges of building a nation and government institutions from scratch, the Government of South Sudan was able to establish the Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Internationl Cooperation. The South Sudan Legislative Assembly put in place the necessary diplomatic laws and foreign policy to guide the new nation. Twenty-four diplomatic missions were opened around the world and the Embassy of the Republic of South Sudan in Washington D.C was accredited and opened on May 4, 2012.

 South Sudan has joined the modern world by emphasizing the role of digital media in its international politics.  It is with this emphasis that the Embassy of the Republic of South Sudan in Washington DC has decided to go digital in hopes of providing basic information and answers to some of the frequently asked questions regarding South Sudan.
South Sudan is ready to make its imprint in the digital world and the launch of this website is a major step towards achieving that goal.
