South Sudan peace deal: UN urges warring sides to honor ceasefire
August 29 , 2015
Both parties in the South Sudan conflict have been warned of a weapons embargo and other sanctions if they fail to implement a ceasefire that will come into force on Saturday.
The UN Security Council called on both sides to adhere “to the permanent ceasefire immediately”.
Though South Sudan's president Salva Kiir has signed the peace deal, he has expressed doubts over it. Riek Machar, the rebel leader, has also signed the agreement. However, similar agreements have been violated in the past.
