UNMISS ready to deploy more troops in South Sudan troubled areas: Shearer

January 23, 2020 (JUBA) - UN mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) said willing to deploy more troops in Juba and troubled areas in the country but asked for a collective agreement on this respect.

On 17 January, Angelina TenyTeny, the head of the SPLM-IO defence committee, proposed to deploy UN forces in the capital and troubled areas such as Yei and Juba-Nimule route where there are fighters of the holdout groups.

In response to this request, David Shearer told reporters on Thursday that the peacekeeping mission is ready to deploy more troop during the roll-out of the newly trained unified forces.

"Where the UN has the capability to increase its presence to support demilitarization and build confidence, we can do this," Shearer said.

"But, any change in our deployment should come as a request agreed by all the parties," he added.

He further stressed that their role remains supportive of the South Sudanese forces.

"Maintaining security and law enforcement will always remain the core responsibility of the government. The UN cannot and will not usurp that role," he reassured.

The delay registered in the implementation of the security arrangements and the imminent formation of the transitional government triggered the SPLM-IO demand for the contribution of the UN force in the protection of civilians in the troubled area.

Initially, it was agreed to dispatch a regional force from the neighbouring countries to protect the opposition leaders but the UNMISS rejected the idea as this force had to be under its umbrella.

    You are so Idiocy. The UNITED Nation is the world organization including South Sudan, how Will you hand over your country to an organization? This is why the Nuers people can’t and will not be trusted in South Sudan. The UNISFA Peacekeepers forces have failed to protect civilians in Abyei region. On Wednesday this week, there 32 reported killed and 15 children abducted,UN silence.

      That is the mentality and brains these mopes with their Riek Machar have. They are told to stop dabbling in their Ngundaeng Buong fantasies, grow enough food for themselves and their children to school to learn the real project behind the UN. Particularly the UNSC and the so-called peacekeeping unit. But as always. The losers would never learn anything>>>>

        The UN had long been hijacked by four countries right after it inception in 1945 anyway. The US, the UK and France drafted the UN document in San Francisco and gave themselves veto powers and permanent members to infinity in the UNSC. But since Russia (then USSR) was the real force behind the defeat of NAZISM. The US, the UK and France gave Russia a permanent seat in the UNSC.>>>>

          Ironically, China was the only country that elected by the four permanent members in the UNSC to be a permanent member of UNSC in 1971. Since Korean war in 1953, Congo war in 1960th, Kosovo war in 1999, Somalia war from 1990th, Afghan war, Iraq war, Libya war in 2011, Current Yemen war and Syria war are fought through the veneer or tacit approval of the UN.>>>>
