UN Security Council threatens sanctions on S.Sudan warring sides

Riek Machar, South Sudanese Rebel Opposition leader, speaks during a press conference in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on July 9, 2014Voicing alarm over the crisis in South Sudan, the UN Security Council threatened Friday to slap sanctions on warring factions for failing to live up to a peace deal signed three months ago. The warning came in a unanimous statement released ahead of a South Sudan visit by Security Council ambassadors next week during which the envoys are to deliver the message directly to the country’s leaders. “The actions of President Salva Kiir and former vice president Riek Machar in continuing to pursue a military solution to this conflict are unacceptable,” said the 15-member council. The council “expresses its readiness to consider, in consultations with relevant partners… all appropriate measures, including targeted sanctions against those who take action that undermines the peace, stability and security of South Sudan, including those who prevent the implementation of these agreements,” the statement said.
