UNITED NATIONS - UN peacekeepers should be able to stay in the volatile areas of Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile after South Sudan secedes from the north, the US ambassador to the UN said on Thursday, days before the United Nations' mission is set to end.

"The United States is extremely concerned by the government's decision to compel the departure of the UN mission in Sudan from Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile states and elsewhere in the North on July 9," Susan Rice, the US ambassador to the UN, said in a speech in Washington.

"It's vital that the United Nations be allowed to maintain a full peacekeeping presence in these areas for an additional period of time," Rice said.

She said a full force in the areas was necessary to facilitate the distribution of humanitarian aid and to protect civilians.
