[Juba, South Sudan, TCT, Francis Mading] The United Nations Security Council insists that the South Sudan parties should form a unity government by 12 November with no delay. The declaration came after a meeting between a delegation of members of the United Nations Security Council and parties to the peace agreement in Juba on October 21, in the afternoon.

It is known that in the past, there have been controversies on outstanding issues, the most important issue of borders and the number of states and security arrangements, which the opposition adhering to the wing of Machar said must be implemented first as a condition before the start of the formation of the government in November. The government adheres to the need to form a government on time to implement other things. This debate led to the international community's fear of sending representatives of the highest and most powerful of its institutions, the UN Security Council, which has the last responsibility to take sanctions and decisions against countries that threaten the social security of countries and the world. A decision obliges all parties to the need to implement the decision to compulsory government formation in a timely manner.

Speaking to reporters after the meeting, South African Ambassador to the United Nations Jerry Mathews Matjila said, ”There are minimum conditions for the parties to move into November 12."

The South African diplomat said the United Nations Security Council and the region will support the peace process in the world’s youngest nation.

Mathews stressed that there should be no more extensions. “The remaining issues of the number of states, the boundaries and other things can be discussed by an inclusive South Sudanese government,” he said.

“If any leader needs security, we will give security. The United Nations can provide security. The major question was security. The government says we are committed, any number of people for protection is available,” he added.

Mathews pointed out that the international community doesn’t see good reasons to delay the formation of the transitional government in South Sudan.

"We don’t anticipate that the remaining problems are so huge to not able South Sudan to move to November 12,” he said.

The UN Securtiy Council delegation urged South Sudan leaders to make durable peace by implementing the revitalised peace deal.

Meanwhile, US Ambassador to the United Nations Kelly Craft urged South Sudan leaders should form a transitional government by November 12.

The US diplomat also called on the parties to the peace agreement to start making progress on the number of states and security arrangements.

Craft pointed out that the UN Security Council delegation was encouraged by President Kiir’s recommitment to the peace agreement.

“We are disappointed by a statement from Dr. Riek Machar that the ceasefire would be in jeopardy when the unity government is formed by November 12,” she said.

Craft stressed that the United Nations Securtiy Council supports the formation of the unity government as originally planned.

The statement made by the UN's most powerful body came amid global pressure as a deadline looms on November 12 for President Salva Kiir, prominent opposition leader Riek Machar and other opposition groups, to form a unity government.

The recently signed peace is the hope of the South Sudanese people, who have suffered long from the devastating war that has displaced millions through internal displacement in UN camps and others who have taken refuge in refugee camps in neighboring countries (Uganda, Kenya, Sudan, Congo), as a result of the recent crisis. Waves of famine and food insecurity due to insecurity in rural areas or the displacement of villagers and flee their areas in search of security and food.

Many hope to form the next government to provide opportunities for investment, development and security to renew hope for the stability of a country that has suffered greatly from the devastating fighting risks.

Many South Sudanese received the Security Council's declaration of the necessity Government formation in November with joy to break the suspicion and fears of citizens from sliding into the war again, as happened in 2013 and 2016.

All citizens are eagerly awaiting the fruits of peace so that refugees and displaced people can return to their areas to contribute to development projects through education. Agriculture and infrastructure development.
