Hillary Clinton lays out new strategy on Sudan

This morning, Secretary Hillary Clinton laid out a bold new strategy for Sundan. According to reports from State, in the past, the United States' approach to Sudan has been reactive rather than proactive and narrowly focused on emerging crises. The new strategy focuses on reinvigorating the international support that is critical to building peace and security in Sudan.

The strategy is the first comprehensive U.S. policy on Sudan that recognizes the links between the Darfur and implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement.

The Secretary also met with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki today as well. Watch their remarks below:
