South Sudan's president says not fighting U.N. over troops plan

JUBA South Sudan is not fighting the United Nations over its plan to intervene to end fighting in the country, President Salva Kiir said on Monday, confirming a softer stance toward a U.N. vote to send in extra troops.

The U.N. Security Council authorized an extra 4,000 troops on Friday, something Kiir's spokesman immediately said the government would oppose. On Sunday, however, the information minister said the proposal would be considered.
