NICOSIA http://www.thepackersfansshop.com/Packe … ft-Jersey/ , Oct. 27 (Xinhua) -- Britain will keep on one of its sovereign bases in Cyprus 114 migrants who came ashore last week at Akrotiri RAF base, reinforcing Prime Minister David Cameron's statement that it will not allow its Cyprus bases to become a new route of migration into Britain.

A spokesman for the British Bases in Cyprus said the migrants were taken today by buses from the Akrotiri Base next to the southern city of Limassol to ""a temporary transit facility"" at Britain's second base at Dhekelia close to the city of Larnaca.

The spokesman said the base at Dhekelia will provide more suitable accommodation, as the Akrotiri air base is used by RAF Tornados for their daily sorties against Islamic State forces in northern Iraq.

""The UK government has been clear that it will not allow a new migrant route to open up to the UK,"" the spokesman said in a statement http://www.thepackersfansshop.com/Packe … ft-Jersey/ , intoning Cameron's words.

He said the migrants have been put up in lodgings outside the perimeter of the Dhekelia military base, which provides facilities catering to vulnerable persons such as children.

They will be hosted at separate facilities from those hosting 66 Iraqi and Syrian Kurds, who also arrived at RAF Akrotiri base back in 1998.

They have actually become stateless people.

Asked what next for the new migrants, the spokesperson said it depends on their asylum applications http://www.thepackersfansshop.com/Packe … ft-Jersey/ , adding that the authorities of the bases work closely together with Cypriot authorities.

""If they do not claim asylum, the SBA remains responsible for dealing with them. It's possible they could be returned to their place of origin. If they are granted asylum, they would be free to reside within the Republic of Cyprus,"" said the spokesman.

Officials from Cyprus's foreign ministry's crisis management centre work with the authorities of the bases to sort out the migrants http://www.thepackersfansshop.com/Packe … ft-Jersey/ , who are believed to be mostly Syrians and Palestinians.

Cyprus and Britain signed an agreement in 2003 providing for the handling of migrants arriving in the British bases, which though not marked by boundaries, are considered to be British sovereign soil.

But there are differing interpretations of the 2003 agreement.

Britain's Ministry of Defence insists the refugees are the responsibility of the Cypriot authorities.

But the United Nations High Commission for Refugees has said that under the terms of the agreement the UK is responsible for refugees arriving on its Cyprus bases.

Cyprus must grant asylum seekers arriving directly in the SBA free medical care, welfare benefits http://www.thepackersfansshop.com/Packe … ft-Jersey/ , the right to apply for a work permit and access to education.

The UK has an obligation to indemnify the Republic of Cyprus for the cost incurred.

JUBA, May 22 (Xinhua) -- South Sudanese President Salva Kiir on Monday launched the long-awaited national dialogue initiative that seeks to reconcile and unite the East African nation torn apart by more than three years of civil war.

The national dialogue announced in December 2016 by President Salva Kiir was initially slated to kick off in March, but was delayed due to financial constraints.

Speaking during the oath taking ceremony of the dialogue's steering committee, Kiir said the dialogue will start immediately with those ready to take up the initiative while the steering committee continue to engage with groups opposed to the dialogue.

The South Sudanese leader said the initiative is meant to open up avenues to discuss political http://www.thepackersfansshop.com/Packe … ft-Jersey/ , social and economic problems facing South Sudanese, and also offer a platform for reconciliation and healing in the war-torn East African country.

Kiir said the launch of the dialogue is a milestone towards nation building and stability of the country, calling on the critics of the opponents of the dialogue to support the committee and make the process more inclusive.

The event was attended by Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, heads of diplomatic missions and senior South Sudanese government officials.

""Today marks another milestone in the nation building process. No one has forced us to do this (national dialogue) and it is for the unity of our nation http://www.thepackersfansshop.com/Packe … ft-Jersey/ , our own unity. I'm confident that the path we have taken will deliver peace and tranquility,"" Kiir said.

The armed opposition group (SPLA-IO) led by former Vice President Riek Machar criticized the dialogue, describing it as ""political entice"" geared towards consolidating power by the Kiir government.

Some critics have also argued that the South Sudanese government is trying to use the national dialogue to evade implementation of a peace deal signed in August 2015.

However, Kiir said his former deputy-turned rebel leader Riek Machar will not be part of the national dialogue because he is still waging war against his government http://www.thepackersfansshop.com/Packe … ft-Jersey/ , adding that Machar would only be allowed to send in delegates to participate in the dialogue.

Ambassador Joram Mukama Biswaro, head of the African Union (AU) Liaison Office in South Sudan said the AU believes that dialogue remains the best option to settle the problems facing the world's youngest country.

The envoy called on the government to make national dialogue inclusive and transparent for it to yield credible results.

""Today is just the beginning of the journey which calls for collective efforts of every South Sudanese. All the anti-peace elements must join this dialogue,"" Biswaro said.

Abel Alier, Co-chair of the national dialogue initiative vowed to make the process inclusive for all disgruntled communities of South Sudan by applying a two-way approach of top - bottom and bottom - top.

South Sudan has been devastated by civil war that broke out in December 2013 after President Kiir accused his former deputy Riek Machar of plotting a coup. Machar denied the accusation but then mobilized a rebel force.
