The United Nations is walking "side-by-side" with the people of South Sudan as they pursue a path towards peace, prosperity and development, says the head of the Department that supports UN peacekeeping operations worldwide.

Atul Khare was recently in South Sudan where the UN has been protecting thousands of civilians displaced by two years of bloody fighting between government troops and opposition forces.

Despite an agreement signed by both sides in August, the UN says the country remains at a "critical stage" as it works to ensure its implementation.

Susan Dokolo spoke with Mr Khare, the UN Under-Secretary-General for Field Support, before he left South Sudan.
