May 6, 2018 (JUBA) - The United Nations Security Council Tuesday will discuss South Sudan sanctions regime and receive a briefing on the situation in the troubled east African country.

UN targeted sanctions on South Sudanese officials including travel ban and assets freeze will expire on 31 May 2018 and expected to be renewed by the end of the month.

In a consultations meeting on Tuesday, the chair of the South Sudan Sanctions Committee, Ambassador Joanna Wronecka of Poland will brief members on the committee’s work, before to renew the sanctions in a meeting scheduled for 31 May.

The Security Council Sanctions Committee met last April with the Panel of Experts to discuss its final report and recommendations on war-hit South Sudan.

The Council also will be briefed on UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) by Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Jean-Pierre Lacroix.

The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) Special Envoy for South Sudan, Ismail Wais, and a female civil society representative may also brief.

    If the next round of sanctions doesn’t hit Kiir and Riek then the UNSC are there to secure their paychecks.

    Dingdong, the UN Security Council is not serving your interests, neither is it serving Kiir’s interests. No. The UN security is hunting for weak countries in the world to further undermine them and establish itself as the next alternative governments of those countries to prove that UN is still relevant!

      Lenin Bull, our very own leaders are serving their interests and are also not managing the affairs of the country for the welfare of its citizens. Where do we blame UN here for hunting the weak countries in the world to further undermine them? If our leaders were up to our interests as citizens and channel resources of the country toward our development, then why would people relied on UN?

    UN is a club controlled by US, Britain, and France. Other countries are their boys whom they threaten to follow them wherever they want to go. The UN( US, UK, France, Norway etc) want to control Oil and other important natural resources in South Sudan! They don’t want China, Russia, and Asians here. But changing China and Russia not only affects South Sudan, it affects Sudan, Kenya, Uganda, etc

    and many other countries doing business with China in the African continent. Even Sudan will collapse the very day the oil contract will be changed from China to US. The railways in Ethiopia and Djibuti, Highways in Kenya,and Uganda, the standard gauge railway in Kenya, etc all Chinese contracts with these countries. South Sudan is being bullied because it is still a young country by the old boys!

          now if any blind, deaf, fool & and an idiot is now asked to choose among the two, who do you thing they would choose? its just that simple, you can not claim to be a government and deliver nothing, in contrary you use the state military resource to intimidate, loot, rob, and terrorized your citizen and except them to support you at the same time.

    Theallseeingeyes, I respect your above reason and opinion because it is expected from you who have no single iota of patriotism to this country called Sudan. You were with Arabs during the 21 year liberation war spewing wrong propaganda about the SPLA and mudslinging the Dinka and swearing by NGUNDAENG that liberation would not happened but now it happended successfully.

      I acknowledge all the dedication and impossible done by the SPLM during the struggle, but I must also admit that SPLM/A had a vision but that vision has been hijacked by certain greedy individuals who carries nothing but tribal agenda and advocating to install tribal supremacy, just the same ideology iniquity SPLM/A struggle hard to eliminate.
