Sudan, S. Sudan agree on resuming agreements

Sudan and South Sudan have reached consensus on resuming the agreements which were previously announced to be cancelled.

Meeting in the Sudanese capital Khartoum, Sudan's Vice President Ali Osman Taha and South Sudan's Vice President Riek Machar, reconciled on maintaining the agreements which Khartoum previously announced to have been cancelled.

At a press conference held following the meeting, the parties said they agreed on a mediating delegation headed by South African President Thabo Mbek to solve the bilateral disagreements.

Besides, the two parties called on the African Union and the Head of East African Community (EAC) to implement the proposal for a mediating delegation as soon as possible.

Sudanese President Omar al Bashir announced last June to halt the oil export of South Sudan over Sudanese soil justifying their support to rebels in the country, saying the decision meant the annulment of the protocol signed bilaterally in practice and covering 9 agreements.

In line with the protocol signed between Sudan and South Sudan in last March, South Sudan is proposed to transfer its oil over Sudan and not to support the rebels in both countries.
