GOSS Minister of Information and Broadcasting, Gabriel Changson, told reporters on Friday in Juba that the agreement will improve the working relations between Sudan's embassies and GOSS liaison missions around the world.
Mr. Changson said the change in status will permit GOSS liaison offices the authority to issue visas to foreigners traveling to southern Sudan. GOSS missions will also have authority to promote social, economic and cultural ties between southern Sudan and other countries.
The minister said GOSS liaison officials will be granted diplomatic immunity and their cars will bear diplomatic registration plate numbers as part of the deal
