David Miliband: 'Sense of foreboding' over South Sudan

David Miliband has said he feels a "deep sense of foreboding" about the situation in South Sudan, where conflict erupted last December.

Both sides have agreed to end fighting and form a transitional government within 60 days following a rare meeting between President Salva Kiir and rebel chief Riek Machar in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The International Rescue Committee president told the Today programme that we should not "breathe a sigh of relief" and turn our attention elsewhere when so many of the country's residents continue to live in poverty.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Wednesday 11 June.
