No more funds unless peace deal is implemented – US Congress warns

Author : | Published: Monday, November 16, 2015

The U.S Congress has warned that there will be no additional funding for South Sudan if the parties do not implement the signed peace agreement and stop the conflict in the country. 

Last week, the government spokesperson, Michael Makuei Lueth, said the government had written a letter to the SPLM-In Opposition to delay the coming of its advance team to Juba to a later date this month.

He said the government has no money for putting in place logistical arrangements for the SPLM-IO advance team and for the process of demilitarization of Juba.

Michael Everett Capuano, is a U.S Congressman, representing Massachusetts in the House of Representatives, and the co-founder and co-chair of the Congressional Caucus on Sudan and South Sudan. He headed a four-member delegation to South Sudan last week.

In an exclusive interview with Eye Radio’s Nichola Mandil at Juba International Airport shortly before their departure for Washington, Mr. Capuano, said the U.S wants to see a speedy implementation of the peace agreement and an end to the conflict in South Sudan.
