30 May 2023

On 30 May 2023 the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 2683 on the situation in South Sudan. Resolution 2683 renewed the sanctions regime, including targeted sanctions and an arms embargo, until 31 May 2024, as well as the mandate of the Panel of Experts of the 2206 South Sudan Sanctions Committee until 1 July 2024. The resolution emphasizes that “the Revitalised Transitional Government of National Unity bears the primary responsibility to protect its population from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing, and crimes against humanity, and expressing concern that, despite the signing of the Revitalised Agreement, violations and abuses including those involving gender-based violence continue to occur, which may amount to international crimes, including war crimes and crimes against humanity.”
