The United States, the UK and Norway have held a conference in the US capital, Washington, to discuss economic development in South Sudan, the world's newest recognised country. The US is now being allowed to invest in the country's oil industry.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says South Sudan faces difficult times ahead and is calling for wide support for the country.

Hillary Clinton said, "South Sudan is one of the least developed nations on Earth. It faces a difficult, mutually dependent relationship with its northern neighbour. It is confronting continued violence in that border region. Deficits and health, education, infrastructure, governance, the rule of law, ethnic tensions: a combustible mix of extreme poverty, natural wealth and fragile institutions. South Sudan survived by being born, but it does need intensive care and it does need intensive care from all of us. And it needs all of those developmental milestones along the way to be reached."
