Japan-South Sudan Relations

Japan established diplomatic relations with South Sudan upon the latter’s independence in 2011, but the bilateral relations go back to the Southern Sudan era under the Comprehensive Peace Agreement of 2005 when Japan initiated development as well as humanitarian cooperation projects.  The two countries maintain and deepen its cordial relationships including senior leadership’s reciprocal visits, ever since.
