U.N. sanctions push for South Sudan stalls on arms embargo – envoys

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – A push at the U.N. Security Council to impose sanctions on South Sudan’s warring parties has reached an impasse due to a dispute over whether to include an arms embargo, diplomats said on Tuesday.

Washington informed fellow council members last month that it would circulate a draft resolution establishing an U.N. sanctions regime for conflict-torn South Sudan. So far no draft has reached the 15-nation council.
