Leaders attending the UN General Assembly to discuss the crisis in South Sudan

The crisis in South Sudan will also be discussed at the general assembly.

The UN has been pushing for the country to make good on its commitments to allow regional peacekeepers in. Government now says it will opt for troops from outside the IGAD region as part of the extra four thousand peacekeepers to be deployed. Juba has not, however, yet decided on which countries those troops will come from.
