Hilton Worldwide Announces First Hotel in DRC

The South Sudan government has fired back at the United Nations’ plans to slap sanctions on the youngest country in the world struggling to recover from almost two years of a bloody political conflict.

Officials said the international body’s actions and threats are frustrating and “hindering” the entire peace process which is expected to deliver the much-needed peace in the country which remains on the edge of a hunger catastrophe.

The South Sudan minister of Foreign Affairs, stomach http://consumermedsafety.org/media/widgetkit/widgets/slideset/styles/default/template.php Mr Bernaba Marial Benjamin who was speaking at the United Nations High Commission for Human Rights in Geneva, http://clintonhouse.com/wp-includes/comment.php Switzerland, http://ctrdv.fr/pmb3/opac_css/includes/languages.inc.php described the threat of sanctions which UN is looking at as solution to the conflict, as a major obstacle to peace in South Sudan.

“The sanctions of any nature against South Sudan might not cure what the sanctions are targeting to solve but might instead aggravate and hinder the peace process in South Sudan,” Mr Marial who had just returned from the 28th UN Human Rights Council said on Wednesday.

Mr Marial also added that the looming sanctions shall hurt the already suffering South Sudanese who are facing the wrath of the conflict that broke out in late 2013 when President Salva Kiir and his former deputy, Dr. Riek Machar bitterly disagreed during a ruling SPLM party conference.

“Our country men and women at the basic and the very basic level are the ones likely to pay the heavy burden of any sanction,” he added.

On Tuesday the UN Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution that creates a system ready to impose sanctions if the 15-month conflict does not come to an end before the March 5 deadline set by the international community.

According to the text, the Council endorsed the Cessation of Hostilities Agreements accepted and signed by both the Governments of South Sudan and the Sudan Peoples’ Liberation Movement (SPLM)-in Opposition on 23 January 2014, 6 May 2014 and 9 May 2014.

IGAD said Tuesday that amongst the critical issues are the structure of the executive of the Transitional Government of National Unity, the power sharing ratios, the composition of the National Assembly and transitional security arrangements.

It also called on the parties and stakeholders to accelerate their efforts to reach a final agreement.
