South Sudan calls for U.N sanction lift

The South Sudan government has urged the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to remove the sanctions against it.

The country was placed in the sanctions list in 2015 following reports of gross human rights violations.

The sanctions ranged from an arms embargo against Juba, and others that targeted individuals believed to be obstructing the peace process in the country.

Several senior government officials, including military commanders from both President Salva Kiir and former Vice President, Riek Machar factions, were among those sanctioned.

According to South Sudan Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Deng Dau Deng, it is time for the Security Council to withdraw punitive measures as the country transitions and becomes stable.
