Juba regrets UN arms ban extension
South Sudan on Wednesday regretted the renewal of the arms embargo and sanctions by the United Nations Security Council. Deng Dau Deng, acting minister of foreign affairs and international cooperation, said South Sudan regrets the renewal of the sanction, terming it as unjustified.
“We have regretted and objected to any renewal of the sanction because this is unjustified; this was done in bad faith and ill intention under the spotlight of being a state with a lot of abuses,” Dau told Xinhua in Juba, the capital of South Sudan.
The UN Security Council on Tuesday adopted a resolution to renew for a year, till May 31, 2024, arms embargo measures against South Sudan as well as targeted sanctions of the travel ban and asset freeze.
