South Sudan Sanctions

On February 2, 2018, the State Department announced they will be executing limitations on the export of defense articles and services to South Sudan. This announcement is in response to the worsening humanitarian crises in South Sudan, with killings of aid workers on the rise, in addition to a worsening famine and refugee crises.  The State Department additionally stated that the ITAR will be amended shortly to reflect this restriction, with a policy of denial with limited exceptions for all defense articles/services. Finally, the State Department calls for a UN Security council arms embargo into South Sudan to further combat this issue.
