South Sudan – Call for the implementation of the ceasefire (July 12, 2016)


France calls for the immediate implementation of the ceasefire announced on July 11 by President Salva Kiir and Vice President Riek Machar.

We condemn the murder of two Chinese peacekeepers and a local UN staff member during the attacks over the last few days.

The attacks against the UN may constitute war crimes.

France extends its condolences to the families of all of the victims and to the Chinese authorities. It assures the injured of its solidarity.
