The Council, on May 28, also extended till July 1, 2022 the mandate of the UN panel of experts tasked with helping to oversee those measures.

Security Council Resolution 2577, further prohibited the supply, sale or transfer of weapons, as well as the provision of technical assistance, training and other military assistance to the East African nation’s territory.

The opposition alliance, in a statement, said South Sudan is still witnessing insecurity as a result of the proliferation of arms, despite the signing of the peace deal.

"The decision to renew the arms embargo, travel ban and asset freeze is timely and is the right measure for reducing armed violence in South Sudan," partly reads the statement.

SSOMA urged the 15-member body to remain seized on matters of peace and security in South Sudan.

"Regional countries that are facilitating the flow of arms into South Sudan should be held accountable as these actions are aggravating and compounding the suffering of the South Sudanese people and indirectly, assisting the government in Juba to continue it’s brazen human rights violations across the country," stressed the statement.
