The government of southern Sudan is accusing the north of provocation. Khartoum has begun recalling ambassadors nominated by Sudan Peoples’ Liberation Movement under the Comprehensive Peace Agreement. It has also stopped sending passport books to Juba, leaving many southerners stuck without new passports.

Southern Sudan’s Information Minister Barnaba Marial Benjamin discusses how long they can put up with these apparently provocative acts by Khartoum.
