The article argues that the prospect of a sustainable peace in Sudan is fading, after the Comprehensive Peace Agreement between North and South Sudan ended a 23-year civil war and initiated a six-year interim period of peace. Salva Kiir, president of South Sudan, and Omar Bashir, president of Sudan, recognized the danger for the first time in their public statements at the commemoration of the second anniversary of the peace agreement in Juba.
