US prolongs sanctions on South Sudan for 1 year

On 1 April 2019, President Trump declared that the US sanctions in relation to South Sudan will continue for 1 year.

The sanctions are implemented through Executive Order 13664, and was announced prolonged in this White House Notice.

The sanctions on South Sudan impose asset freezes and travel bans on those who have been determined to be responsible for actions or policies that, inter alia, threaten the peace, security, or stability of South Sudan; undermine democratic processes in South Sudan; obstruct reconciliation in South Sudan; or commission acts of violence against civilians. The content of the sanctions regime has, however, not changed.
