The UN Security Council on Wednesday gave South Sudan President Salva Kiir until September 1 to get fully behind a peace deal after he signed the accord with reservations.

"The deadline for him is September 1," said Nigerian Ambassador Joy Ogwu, who chairs the council this month.

"He has room to play," she told reporters.
