Su­dan arms em­bargo vote

Wanganui Chronicle - - Front Page -

The UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil is set to vote to­day on a res­o­lu­tion that would im­pose an arms em­bargo on South Su­dan and sanc­tions against a cur­rent deputy de­fence chief and for­mer Army chief. The fi­nal draft res­o­lu­tion ex­presses “deep con­cern” at the fail­ure of South Su­dan’s lead­ers to end hos­til­i­ties. The UN-spon­sored res­o­lu­tion needs a min­i­mum of nine “yes” votes for adop­tion by the 15-mem­ber coun­cil, and diplo­mats say they ex­pect a num­ber of ab­sten­tions though no veto.
