On the first session of the UNSC (United Nations Security Council), on this Thursday (25), discussing the topics regarding the South Sudan Conflicts, focusing on the Children and Armed conflict and the Rebuilding of South Sudan. As highlighted by the Federal Republic of Germany'’ delegate in the middle of a discussion of which topic was more important to discuss first, “The children are the future of our nation. We need to take all steps possible to protect all victims, in and out of the conflict, especially the children!”.
The Republic of Sudan says that they will give all the assistance to South Sudan since peace is the only way to end this conflict. On that note, the Republic of South Sudan expects productive discussions and solutions for the problems.
As a humanitarian assistance for this matter, the Republic of Equatorial Guinea proposes that the neighbor countries should give the South Sudanese refugees a home so the children can live their lives away from the conflicts. The United States of America, French Republic, the People’s Republic of China, and the Federal Republic of Germany will give financial and transportation assistance to the the refugees' relocation.
It was also stressed by the State of Kuwait's representant that the female children are the ones suffering the most, since there are several sexual harassment testimonies from these girls. Germany wants to help by giving medical, mental and capital assistance to the victims.
All of the suggestions are still in discussion. Further agreements and suggestions will be discussed in the next sessions
