Juba TV South Sudan, April 27, 2021____ A United Nations report issued on Monday warned that South Sudan is at risk of sliding back into a “large-scale conflict” due to the slow pace of reforms and the implementation of the 2018 peace agreement.

“In light of recent calls for the resignation of the country’s leaders, urgent action should be taken to prevent a return to a large-scale conflict,” the annual report of the United Nations experts responsible for implementing sanctions and arms embargoes on South Sudan said.

The report stated that “the number of people in need of humanitarian assistance in South Sudan in the year 2021 is unprecedented, while 8.5 million people have humanitarian needs.”

South Sudan witnessed over a period of 6 years a civil war that left 380 thousand people dead, which officially ended with the formation of a national unity government in February 2020.
