Western ambassadors and diplomats in Khartoum are calling on South Sudan to support a UN resolution condemning the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Sudan’s Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Ali El Sadig says a delegation of ambassadors and heads of missions of the European Union, the Troika, Canada, and Switzerland have condemned the violations of the Russian Federation.

“We are just hoping that as the newest member of the UN, South Sudan will stand with the UN principles, stand with this international rule-based order that is preserving us from warfare and votes with the vast majority of the international community in favour of this resolution,” said Marc Trouyet, the French ambassador to South Sudan.

The delegation says there is a need for reasserting Ukraine’s territorial integrity and stressing the need to find a peaceful solution to the conflicts, and to hold the perpetrators of violations of international law accountable.

The South Sudan government is however yet to respond on to the diplomats’ call.

This is as the United Nations General Assembly will today vote on a resolution censuring Russia over its invasion of Ukraine.

Meanwhile reports say, South Sudanese in Ukraine are living in tragic conditions with the continuation of the Russian attack on Ukraine. 

This is as the Ukrainian army is deploying security barriers in cities and travel routes.
