JUBA: South Sudan on Wednesday called on the international community to fund efforts to implement a peace deal, which is already four months behind schedule due to lack of money, reports AFP.

In an address to diplomats, deputy foreign minister Deng Dau Deng said the money was needed to move warring forces into cantonment areas, a move seen as vital to addressing security in the country.

“Our specific appeal is for our partners and for the diplomatic community in Juba to give support to plug the gaps... so that we can move,” Deng said.
