South Sudan criticizes US proposal to impose sanctions

The South Sudanese government on Friday rejected United States' call for an arms embargo and sanctions on the war-torn country.

The U.S. government’s call is undermining the peace process, a South Sudan foreign affairs spokesman Ambassador Mawien Makol Ariik told Anadolu Agency.

He branded the U.S. move as a “double standard”, which if approved by the UN would restrict the flow of weapons to the Juba-based regime. “We see no sense for an arms embargo and sanctions since we are committed to the peace process; it is [the rebel leader] Riek Machar still calling for war and someone should question the stand of American government here,” Ariik said.
