April 8, 2018 (NEW YORK) –The 2206 United Nations Security Council Sanctions Committee will meet with its Panel of Experts on 11 April to discuss its final report and recommendations on war-hit South Sudan.

The committee will also be briefed by the Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict, Virginia Gamba.

In April, the 15-member Council expects to receive a briefing on the UN mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) followed by consultations.

Council members also expect to receive the monthly report from the Secretary-General on violations of the Status of Forces Agreement (SoFA) or obstructions to UNMISS, as requested in resolution 2406. The mandate of UN peacekeeping mission expires on 15 March 2019.

In October last year, a report from the Security Council committee highlighted a number of issues, such as the high-level revitalization forum for parties to the Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in war-torn South Sudan, the regional efforts of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development, the dire humanitarian and economic situation and possible impact of additional sanctions.

In March last year, a UN panel of experts called for an arms embargo on South Sudan after it emerged that its government was spending oil revenue on weapons as its citizens faced starvation. The call was, however, opposed by China and Russia, insisting regional nations must play a key role in resolving the South Sudan problem.

South Sudan descended into war in mid-December 2013 when Kiir accused his former deputy Riek Machar of plotting a coup. The conflict has forced more than two million people to flee their homes.

    I believe the right time has come for the security council to take a concert action by using strike measures against those who are lying down obstacles against peace in South Sudan. the suffering of the people has gone beyond imagination, hundreds thousand refuge, 1.5million IDP, 2.5million on brink of starvation, potential genocide, human rights abuse, gang rape cases including the Terrian Hotel.

      Grand raiding (e.g. looting of UNWFP Warehouse in Capital Juba), massive dignified corruption, arbitrary detention of human rights activist & journalists, none freedom of expression, hindrance of humanitarian access, not to forget to mention lack of salary for several months and firing complaining staffs (US embassy driver), diversion of public funds towards procurement of weapons....

      Individual like Michael Makuei Lueth, should be sanctioned by banning him from traveling abroad, he should have his assets freeze. This man is the measure obstacle to peace in South Sudan. However, we want sanctions with action, not just by words of mouth ya UNSC.

    Koryom 2,
    The problem of your war tone id that you usually run outside country when it come man to man! You started it in 1984 by massacre Gajaak but when we retaliate in 1991 you run to Kakuma and return in 2005. You started again in 2013 and when we retaliate in 2014, you run and occupied Nimule and Uganda.I hope you are mobilizing UPDF, Egypt,Rwanda,GEM,SPLA-N, M23 and Torobora to fight for you

    You mongrels don’t celebrate. US is usung the UN Security Council for regime change so that it will after wards access oil reserve in South Sudan. It has nothing to do with Riek or IO/Nuer. Don’t be emotional idiots. War will never be ended by US/UN security council. It will stop when South Sudanese take their destiny into their own hands and behalf like dignified people not stupid bastards.

        Eastern, you are son of a whore who goes to bed with anyone with money. Having money in the UN doesn’t make one right. US is prescribing wrong peace strategy in South Sudan. If Soutrh Sudanese don’t willingly even your next puppet government installed by US/foreigners will not last for a weak leave alone one month. The other tribes hated by IO/Nuer will take to bush to bring you down because that

    There are many black markets for weapons in the region including Sudan which is issuing out weapons out like biscuits and sweets to all people interested in destabilizing their countries( Eritrea, Ethiopia, Egypt, Chad, Central Africa, South Sudan, Uganda/LRA, Elshabab in Somali rebels all get free weapons in Sudan. These rebels further sell these weapons for food to survive in B Markets.

      Then its just that simple, dissolve the government, accept sharing of power,resource & Machar, because after all we none Jienge and Machar as well they are not extraterrestrial beings from outer space they are South Sudanese too, rather than letting those "American or Foreigners" take our country resource.

        Theallseeingeye, you are in fact blind and not seeing anything at all! Resource and power sharing do not apply here in the current context. You are idiots copycatting nonsense. Here you have your states, counties, payams, and bomas, and all these receive equal money/budget from the central government, plus your local revenue sources. Further which power do you want to share when you have it?

          As for your NGUNDANEG messiah Riek, he doesn’t need to kill people to get power nor beg the whole world to install him in Juba and chase away Kiir. what he needs is to sign peace so that total peace comes back to South Sudan and then we go for elections where he can even take power wholesome rather than share it with any other dude! You IO bastards are not using your brains but asses to reason.

    Eastern and the rest of IO internet warriors, be aware that US, Australia, Israel, Canada, etc are deporting South Sudanese back to South Sudan directly. You spoil and destabilize the only promised land you have under the sun and it backfires on you. Soon IO warriors have nowhere for sanctuary except to make peace and respect South Sudan as your only motherland on earth!

        as as for the UNSC, they are none of our concern or focus, in fact "The enemy of my enemy is my friend". so be it, sanctions, UN interim, UN trusteeship, we don’t care, because we are fad up now, there is nothing that we are gaining under this state that we can be proud of, just humiliation, marginalization, discrimination, poverty,war, etc. Just look at us now, where are we? refugee camp

      These are jienge and nyagat criminals who as congenital thieves took this stealing habit to the US and Australia. Lazy idiots and unable to work have lived on mugging and robbing others and now both countries are deporting them. 24 have already arrived in Juba adding to the number of jienge bandits terrorizing Juba. Jienge sakit!

    My friend the Theallseeingeye or should I call you allseeingnothing. No Dinka have ever said your above statements. Those are political made up stories to tarnish the good image of the Great Dinka Nation by people being haunted by past full of betrayal and treason. When the war broke out in 2013, it was all about Nuer 75% of the national army and they deceived themselves they can take power byforc

    Let UN security council in this leadership of Trump be positive not to think negatively by prioritizing their interest like John Kerry and Obama administration that were facilitating killing of Dr.Machar on his way to Congo. Most South Sudanese hope that Trump administration is rich that will not be bribe with oils of South Sudan, which will work on peace to come by putting South Sudanese interest
