After a long war that has claimed lives for over a decade, the world is growing impatient with unresolved conflict still going on in South Sudan. Following this unfolding events, the United States no longer wants to support the peace process in South Sudan because of a lack of efforts by the political leadership in the East African country.
This has been mainly due to the lack of sustained progress on the part of South Sudan’s leaders, and following consultation with Congress, the United States is ending support for the Reconstituted Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission and the Ceasefire and Transitional Security Arrangements Monitoring and Verification Mechanism.
Following a statement issued by the U.S. State Department on Friday confirmed that the U.S. would continue to provide humanitarian assistance to the country, it added. South Sudan is the youngest state in the world, having only become independent from Sudan in 2011. It is torn by bloody conflict, even though the civil war officially ended in 2018.
