United States ambassador Haley evacuated from S. Sudan camp

US mulls South Sudan pressure, cutting aid may not work: UN envoy Nikki Haley and the awful dilemma posed by South Sudan

"The United States is at a crossroads and we have to decide how we're going to look at South Sudan going forward", Haley told Kiir after two lengthy meetings in the capital Juba. She did not give details.

They "became upset that [Haley] was not able to meet with them, due to time constraint", the person said. A spokesman for the US mission to the United Nations said Haley was meeting with a recently reunified displaced family but had to shorten her visit because of security concerns. But first, she will see how the conflict has threatened to spillover through deadly cross-border raids into Gambella, Ethiopia by gunmen from South Sudan.

"People are not happy", said one resident of the United Nations camp, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of his safety.

Haley had been scheduled to meet camp elders, women and youths.

"This is a very productive engagement, and this engagement will continue and open a new page in relations between the USA administration and South Sudan", said Nhial.

"We are disappointed by what we are seeing, this is not what we thought we were investing in. This is not what we thought we were investing in", Haley said in remarks released by the UN.

"The president emphasized the commitment and readiness of the government of South Sudan to commit itself fully to a revitalization process through the IGAD high revitalization forum", Nhial said, referring to the Intergovernmental Authority on Development African trade bloc.

Haley began her Africa tour in Ethiopia, which is leading the latest peace efforts in South Sudan, where the United Nations has deployed a 14,000-strong peacekeeping mission.

The US envoy to the UN, Nikki Haley, was evacuated from a UN refugee camp in South Sudan due to a demonstration against the country's president, US media outlets have reported.

A fragile peace deal broke down past year amid gun battles between soldiers and rebels in the capital Juba.

The United States is South Sudan's largest donor and was instrumental in the country's creation. It has plunged parts of the world's youngest nation into starvation and forced a third of the population - some 4 million people - to flee their homes.

Brian Adeba of the Enough Project advocacy group that closely follows the South Sudan conflict, told AFP that the new peace push came as government was particularly "intransigent to peace".

Haley said last month she wanted to salvage a tattered 2015 peace deal that collapsed in July past year, as regional mediators launch a fresh bid to "revitalise" the agreement.
