KAMPALA - US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will press South Sudan to resolve disputes with its former rulers in the north, on her first visit to the world's newest country on Friday.

On an 11-nation African tour, Clinton will be the most senior US since independence last year, warning that bitter divisions over territory and oil threaten to wreck the economies of two nations.

"We're encouraging both sides, South Sudan and Sudan, to meet and negotiate the differences between them as expeditiously as possible," a senior US official said, briefing reporters traveling with Clinton, who arrived in Uganda on Thursday.

Clinton will underline US support for the government of South Sudan, which Washington helped guide through years of negotiations with Khartoum that finally led to independence following a decades-long civil war.
