Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir said that tensions with South Sudan could lead to war according to Reuters citing local television stations.

Asked about whether war could break out between Khartoum and Juba, Bashir said that now there is the possibility of such an outcome. However, he added that Sudan wants peace, but “will go to war, if it is forced to do it.” It is not the first time that such statements have been made by the government of Sudan.

In the fall of 2011 Bashir said that Khartoum was losing patience and was willing to start a war with South Sudan. According to the evidence at the time they were in fact preparing to wage war against the Sudanese and the threats were not empty ones.
