SSHURSA Welcomes US Arms Restrictions On South Sudan

The US has expressed frustration with the failure of South Sudanese leaders to put an end to the country's four-year civil war. The move, however, is mostly symbolic since the USA has nearly no defense trade with the East African country. The ongoing violations by the parties especially that which is orchestrated by the government troops in Bieh, Yei, Western Upper Nile and several locations in South Sudan are unacceptable.
