South Sudan's President Kiir holds hands with First Vice President Taban Deng Gai and Second Vice President James Wani Igga inside the Presidential Palace in the capital of JubaBy Michelle Nichols UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The United Nations warned South Sudan's President Salva Kiir on Tuesday that any political appointments must be consistent with a peace deal that ended nearly two years of civil war after Kiir replaced his vice president and rival Riek Machar. Machar left the South Sudanese capital Juba earlier this month after an eruption of violence in the city when forces loyal to Kiir and Machar battled each other for several days with tanks, helicopters and other heavy weapons. An August peace agreement states that the vice president must be chosen by the South Sudan Armed Opposition.
