The Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (JMEC) says the deployment of the Regional Protection Force is of ‘paramount importance.’
“There is no doubt that Juba is relatively calm at present but this calmness can be deceptive and the situation is volatile,” said JMEC Chairperson Festus Mogae at the opening of a plenary meeting of stakeholders to the peace process.
The 4,000-strong force was authorized by the UN Security Council in August to provide extra protection following renewed fighting in July.
