The Norwegian government condemned the attack and quickly deliberated on measures of aiding the humanitarian organisations in South Sudan to help save lives of fleeing refugees.

“We condemn the attack on the UN base in Jonglei in South Sudan on 19 December. The UN is there to protect civilians. It is unacceptable that they themselves are targeted,” said Foreign Minister Børge Brende.

Mr Brende was very concerned about the critical situation in South Sudan and the serious incidents that have taken place over the last few days.


The UN had reported that 20 lives were lost in the attack on the UNMISS base in Akobo, in Jonglei state on December 19.

“UN personnel are entitled to protection in their work to protect the civilian population in South Sudan, who have endured terrible suffering for a long time. This attack must be investigated and those responsible brought to justice,” said Mr Brende.

Mr Brende discussed the situation in South Sudan with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and other UN leaders during his visit in New York.

“We urge all parties to refrain from the use of violence and to help to find a political solution to the conflict,” said Mr Brende.

It also recently came to public notice that UN needed $1.1bn to faciliatate charity organisation in the war-torn country.

To that effect, the Norwegian government has raised €16m to help charity organisations save lives more easily.
