War warning over Abyei

Omar al-Bashir discusses the issue of Abyei, and the future of his presidency.

    Sudanese president Omar al Bashir tells Al Jazeera that the oil-rich Abyei region could be the flash point of any renewed conflict in Sudan.

    He also said that the status quo in Abyei should remain unchanged with the same administration and components until a solution is reached.

    The Sudanese president has also given Al Jazeera his strongest hint yet that he is considering retirement.

    Mohammed Adow reports from the capital Khartoum.
