US to re-evaluate South Sudan ties


The US is “gravely disappointed” with South Sudan’s failure to form a unity government by a November 12 deadline and would “re-evaluate” its relationship with the African nation’s government.

“We will work bilaterally and with the international community to take action against those impeding South Sudan’s peace process,” US State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said in a statement, adding the US would seek “to establish a new paradigm to achieve peace and a successful political transition in South Sudan” with others in the region.
