UN resumes flights, says it has resolved issues with government

UNMISS confirmed Tuesday that it has resumed flying after security clearances were issued.

In a press briefing the Cabinet Affairs Minister and IGAD ambassador said the issue has been resolved.

The government declined to approve UN flights last week forcing all UN flights to be grounded on Friday and Sunday.

The government was unhappy with the deployment of RPF outside their agreed base of Yei Road. Minister of Information has since said that RPF will be withdrawn from Thonpiny to Yei Rd base solving the problem.
