U.S.-led Security Council to discuss South Sudan regional force in April

April 2, 2017 (WASHINGTON) - The United Nations Security Council which will be chaired this month by the United States for the first time since the elections of President Donald Trump will discuss the deployment of the regional force in South Sudan.

In April, the 15-member Council will discuss a report on the deployment of the long-time awaited Regional Protection Force (RPF), and expected to endorse a decision on its imminent arrival in the troubled country.

The American Administration under the new President Donald Trump has not yet appointed a new special envoy for the Sudan, but the State Department continues to implement the same policy defined by the former envoy Donald Booth.

As the new U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley will chair the Security Council in April, the new administration will have the occasion to indicate any change in its policy towards the two Sudans.

During a visit to Juba last March, the former head of the UN peacekeeping department Hervé Ladsous explained the reasons behind the delay in the deployment of the RPF and announced it would be deployed within weeks.

"I think I can say that in the next few weeks you will see the first vanguard of the Regional Protection Force being deployed here in Juba," he said.

The former U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power failed in December 2016 to convince the UNSC members to endorse a draft resolution imposing targeted sanctions and an arms embargo on South Sudan.

It is not clear if the new American Ambassador Haley would reintroduce this draft resolution. Last March the U.S. mission in the United Nations said that an arms embargo and targeted sanctions as tools available to the Council.

However, Egypt and Russia remain strongly opposed to such a move against South Sudan.

    Egypt and Russia did absolutely NOTHING during the struggles against the jellaba and to turn around and play the"kind and helpful" friend is stupid enough. You can’t reao where you didn’t sow. Rotten communists and short-legged misryun have no business in SS.

      Who could blame you when you were born and grew up in a foreign country during the struggle. Even if you were born in a foreign country and grew up there; you couldn’t be that stupid to not ask where the weapons which were used by SPLA came from! Do you think that AK-47 and all the other weapons were made in America? An idiot like you need to study the history first or say nothing!

        You jienge idiot. The manufacturer of AK-47 is NOT necessarily the supplier. Today guns are brought everywhere. It is how to get these weapons, do you understand ya mbororo? You are just one of these lost boys who found their way to Kakuma and now claim to have fought, Bullshit. If you claim like your fellow mbororo Kuch, you could be Lt.Gen by now in the jienge SPLA, ya loser.

        Nything the Egyptians do to the Nile Riparian in the name of help or support is to buy the loyalty of that country so that they tow the line of Egypt during Nile Basin meetings. I have attended many meetings of the said organisation both within and outside of Egypt. All Egyptians are ardent protectors of their county’s interest as far as Nile water is concerned.
