Juba - South Sudanese President Salva Kiir said on
Wednesday he was ready for any dialogue with the former vice president whom he
accused of being behind a coup attempt, Kiir's spokesperson said.
"He was asked whether he would accept any dialogue,
and he said he is ready for dialogue," presidential spokesperson Ateny Wek
Ateny told Reuters by telephone.
Kiir, who had been responding to questions at a news
conference, said there were no current talks with former vice president Riek
Machar, who he sacked in July.
The two men are from rival ethnic groups that have
clashed in the past.
