Nine countries voted in favor of a U.S.-drafted resolution, while Russia, China, Ethiopia, Bolivia, Equatorial Guinea and Kazakhstan abstained. Ethiopia said the timing was not right given attempts to revitalize the peace process.

The United States, which drafted the action, has been one of the South Sudan’s friends but relations with the world’s youngest country soured after the nation descended into a bloody civil war in December 2013.

Sources at the UN in New York said that the action will deter South Sudan’s unwillingness for peace.

Somalis living in the United States under protected status have been given permission by the Trump administration to remain in the country for at least another 18 months, because of ongoing violence in the North African nation.

At least 500 Somalis in the United States with Temporary Protected Status will be able to re-register for an extension of their status through March 17, 2020, according to a Thursday statement from the Department of Homeland Security. The status grants beneficiaries the ability to legally work while they are in the United States.
