The U.N. Security Council warned on Wednesday it is ready to consider "appropriate measures" against warring parties in South Sudan if they do not stop the violence in the world's youngest nation and negotiate a transitional government. South Sudan has been in political turmoil since President Salva Kiir sacked his deputy Riek Machar last year, triggering a conflict that reopened deep ethnic tensions in the world's youngest country, which only won independence from Sudan in 2011.
