Three European countries that evacuated UN police from South Sudan without consulting the United Nations have been told that their officers are no longer welcome in the peacekeeping mission, officials said Wednesday.
"IGAD leaders have recommended the strengthening of the mandate and capacity of UNMISS, the UN peacekeeping Mission is South Sudan, and we sincerely hope that the Security Council will discuss the mandate of UNMISS and also take the necessary measures to strengthen the capacity of the United Nations peacekeeping Mission", he added.
In the articles, Taban said President Salva Kiir and his deputy Riek Machar had been unable or unwilling to control their troops in the latest spasm of violence, in which at least 272 people were killed.
Machar then left Juba with his troops, although he said he was not preparing for a resumption of the fighting that convulsed South Sudan from December, 2013 and ended early this year.
Describing the evacuation process in recent days as successful, the army spokesman said "the total number of civilians evacuated from South Sudan by road under protection of the UPDF (Ugandan army) since the start of the operation has reached 38,000".
In a statement by his Spokesman, Ateny Wek-Ateny, on Friday in Juba, the president asked Machar to make contact with him in the next 48 hours. That agreement ended more than two years of conflict between the Kiir and Marchar forces.
HelpAge International is deeply concerned about the proportion of older people affected by continued violence and internal displacement in South Sudan.
"If that occupation actually happens, it will need resistance", Juuk said.
"It is an unreasonable ultimatum", said James Gatdet Dak, Machar's spokesman.
The leaders contradicted Dr Machar's support of the initiative by the AU and global community to deploy additional foreign force in the young nation after recent fighting between the forces of President Kiir and Vice President Machar.
Some people initially threw stones at the gate, but dispersed after handing a petition to the Mission, reportedly against a proposal by the African Union to deploy a regional peacekeeping force to the country.
Taban Deng Gai, former opposition chief negotiator and Mining minister in the unity government declared that they have agreed to back President Kiir's stance and oppose the foreign military intervention.
