U.S to dispatch envoy to South Sudan and DRC

"We’re closely monitoring and deeply disturbed by the ongoing violence in South Sudan and in the Congo," Trump told African leaders on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York.

"Millions of lives are at risk and we continue to provide humanitarian assistance, but real results in halting this catastrophe will require an African-led peace process and a sincere commitment of all parties involved,” he added.

South Sudan has experienced a civil war since mid-December 2013. The conflict has killed tens of thousands and displaced over 2 million.

The UN envoy, President Trump further said, would "discuss avenues of conflict and resolution and most importantly, prevention."

On Tuesday, however, the Donald Trump administration extended Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for the nationals of South Sudan, but said it will end the designation for citizens from Sudan in 2018.

The U.S. decision comes three weeks before a decision by the Trump administration on the permanent lift of U.S. sanctions on Sudan on 12 October.

    "Discuss the avenue of conflict resolution" What are they?
    1. Sactions for individual involved
    2. Suspension of relief Aids
    3. Arm embargo to African Countries in particular SS
    4. Regime change
    Any of these is immanence as far as the situation is concern, believe me not, just keep an eye

    The message Nicki should bring to Kiir is for him to vacate J1 and let the people of South Sudan to choose their leaders without intimidation and bias. Failure to do so is disobedience to international request that is punishable.
