star this property answer text <p>The UK strongly supports the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS), and we continue to work with the UN and the Department for Peacekeeping Operations to improve the capabilities of the mission to effectively carry out its mandate. As a result of our efforts on this, the UN Security Council passed resolution 2304 in August 2016, which mandated the deployment of 4000 extra troops for UNMISS as a Regional Protection Force for Juba. We continue to urge the Government of South Sudan to fulfil their commitment to accommodate this deployment, and encourage the troop contributing countries to accelerate preparations. We are also currently in the process of deploying 379 UK troops to UNMISS. They will carry out vital engineering and advisory support, and will set up a field hospital in Bentiu.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The recent deterioration in the security situation in South Sudan has made UN operations – including protecting civilians and facilitating the safe delivery of humanitarian assistance – more difficult. In the UN Security Council on 13 July, we urged the Council and regional countries to unite in demanding the South Sudanese authorities allow UN Mission in the Republic of South Sudan to have freedom of movement and all the equipment it needs in country.</p> more like this

The FCO provided a flight, in the absence of commercial options, for British Nationals, including those working in the UN, who wanted to leave South Sudan on 14 July 2016.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We regularly urge the Government of South Sudan, including the Foreign Minister, to allow UNMISS effectively to fulfil its mandate across the country. This includes allowing freedom of movement, and expediting the deployment of the UN Regional Protection Force. Most recently the FCO Africa Director lobbied the First Vice President on 24 November. Civil society in South Sudan is increasingly constrained by the Government, security forces and other groups. We are concerned about the impact of the NGO law which has reduced their space to operate. The UK has consistently spoken out in support of civil society and lobbied the Government on this issue.</p> more like this
