Welcome to the world's newest independent nation. I truly hope this leads to peace and prosperity for that troubled region of the world.

"I truly hope this leads to peace and prosperity for that troubled region of the world"

I predict there is more chance of hell freezing over.

Very sadly I agree with bremner. Everybody wants peace but it is usually at the expense of somebody else. It was ever thus.

have they joined the giveaway of aid packages from the UK yet I am sure we will give them the odd billion to add to our own debt crisis.

They have independence of sorts but in an unstable area can this "peace" enable a solid viable nation to progress.Now that President Bashir is "free" of concerns for his southern flank does this mean he can continue with the decimation of Darfur.?? Interesting how Netanyahu jumped in to recognise this fledgling "state" so he could quickly negotiate the return of refugees.
