We reaffirm our support for the UN Mission in South Sudan, which is performing an essential task with respect to humanitarian aid and the protection of civilians and human rights. It must be able to implement its mandate without hindrance and in complete security.
France calls on the parties to enforce the cessation of hostilities agreement in full and without delay, and to guarantee humanitarian access to civilian populations.
