The United States, alongside other nations, spoke at the meeting in an effort to support South Sudan in their quest for peace. “The United States also supports this resolution because, it calls for UNMISS [the United Nations Mission in South Sudan] to strengthen its sexual and gender-based violence prevention activities, responding to the horrific sexual violence in South Sudan. It also authorizes UNMISS to provide electoral assistance, at the request of the Government of South Sudan, pending its meeting of electoral benchmarks outlined in the Revitalized Agreement,” U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Linda Thomas-Greenfield said on Tuesday.
