World's newest nation becomes Horn of Africa donor

Majok Guandong

The world's newest nation, but also one of the poorest, has made a one million dollar contribution to the crisis-stricken Horn of Africa region.

South Sudan says as a regional neighbour it cannot stand by and watch the suffering in Somalia, caused by drought and conflict.

Gerry Adams asked Ambassador Majok Guandong of South Sudan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs what was behind the donation.
