Al Jazeera quotes Africa Center Director J. Peter Pham on US policy for addressing the ongoing conflict in South Sudan:


J Peter Pham, Director of the Africa Center at the Atlantic Council in Washington DC, notes that even within the US State Department, policy has been incoherent.

While most South Sudan specialists recognise that Kiir is part of the problem, Washington's top diplomat, John Kerry, has made strong public displays of support for him, he said.

"Until you agree on what’s going on, it’s very difficult to agree on a solution," Pham said.
