South Sudan – Attack against a UN base (December 19, 2013)
France condemns the attack against a UN base in Akobo, South Sudan, which has reportedly left several people dead. Those responsible for the attack must be brought to justice.
We reiterate our deep concern at the continued fighting in several regions in South Sudan and call on the parties to immediately cease hostilities.
There’s an urgent need for discussions between the parties, with the help of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development, the regional organization in the Horn of Africa, whose action France supports.
