As South Sudan prepares to announce its independence on 9 July, the EU has extended a welcoming hand, reiterating its intention to continue support and develop a regular dialogue. Over 98% of voters from South Sudan voted in favour of separation from North Sudan in a January referendum.

EU High Representative Catherine Ashton will travel to the capital, Juba, to participate in the celebrations for Independence Day.
