U.S. Draft Proposes Sanctions for Sudan, South Sudan

The United States circulated a draft resolution at the United Nations Thursday proposing sanctions for both Sudan and South Sudan if they refuse to comply with the African Union’s plans for peace. 

Also last week, the president of newly independent South Sudan told China's president that attacks by rival Sudan amount to a declaration of war on his country.
