JUBA - South Sudan will not accept a 4,000-member United Nations protection force to ensure peace in its capital Juba and will not cooperate with the world body, a spokesman for President Salva Kiir said on Friday after the UN Security Council authorized the troops.

"That is very unfortunate and we are not going to 'cooperate' on that because we will not allow our country to be taken over by the UN," Kiir's spokesman Ateny Wek Ateny told Reuters. "Any force that will be called Juba Protection force will not be accepted."
