November 26, 2016 (SSB) — The Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission welcomes the decision taken today by the Council of Ministers of the Transitional Government of National Unity (TGoNU) on the issue of the deployment of the Regional Protection Force (RPF) pursuant to United Nations Security Council resolution 2304 (2016).

Honourable Dr. Martin Elia Lomuro Minister for Cabinet Affairs communicated this decision to JMEC, UNMISS, regional and international partners. Minister Lomuro stated that “all outstanding issues” related to the deployment had been resolved with the United Nations and that deployment of the RPF could commence with immediate effect.
