UN warns of Su­dan dis­pute sanc­tions

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - UK & World Update -

THE UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil has unan­i­mously ap­proved a res­o­lu­tion threat­en­ing non-mil­i­tary sanc­tions against Su­dan and South Su­dan if they do not halt es­ca­lat­ing vi­o­lence on their bor­der and re­turn to ne­go­ti­a­tions. China, which is a ma­jor oil buyer from both coun­tries, and Rus­sia tra­di­tion­ally op­pose sanc­tions but voted in favour of the Us-drafted res­o­lu­tion. The res­o­lu­tion en­dorses an African Union road map aimed at get­ting the two coun­tries to step back from the brink of war and re­solve their dif­fer­ences.
