We are aware of recent reports of attacks on Ngok Dinka. The UK supports the mandate provided by the UN Security Council to the UN Interim Security Force for Abyei (UNISFA) to protect civilians in the Abyei Area under imminent threat of physical violence. It is for the mission’s leadership to decide how to fulfil the mandate. The actions of the mission are scrutinised by the UK as a permanent member of the UN Security Council.
