South Sudan President Salva Kiir has promised peace as the only choice and only way following the return to Juba of rebel leader now first Vice President Dr. Riek Machar.

President Kiir received Dr. Machar and oversaw his swearing in as first Vice President immediately on arrival.

Dr. Machar's delayed arrival had drawn panic among various circles with US withdrawing the chartered plane to fly him to Juba and threatening consequences.

While speaking at the swearing-in ceremony, President Kiir said: "Peace is South Sudan's 'only choice' and 'only way'."

On his part, Dr. Machar said: "As long as there is political will, the nation will overcome all obstacles."
