In January 2012, South Sudan cut off oil production for 10 months after accusing Sudan of stealing its crude. The shut down escalated into border conflict in April 2012, but the two sides later signed deals to restart the oil. Kiir claims the restarting of oil production has been delayed due to further demands made by Sudan after the agreement was reached.
