UK declares South Sudan “dangerous” place to travel

Juba, November 29, 2015 (SSNA) — The government of the United Kingdom has declared the Republic of South Sudan “dangerous” and “unsafe” place to travel, warning all its citizens to take the advice seriously, according to a statement published on the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) website.

The UK admits that it has no control over the deterioration of the security in the volatile young nation and asks its citizens to remain alert and monitor local security and the media.

The warning comes as the implementation of the IGAD-Plus compromise peace agreement becomes uncertain. The UK government also cites terrorism as an issue for its decision.

UK, a member of three nations’ bloc, Troika, has been supportive of the ongoing South Sudan’s peace talks.

However, the document appears to be an updated version of UK’s regular worldwide travel warnings, according to the South Sudan News Agency (SSNA) investigations.
