Radio Miraya (South Sudan), 21.01.2013 : Oil export agreement failed


South Sudan and Sudan have failed to reach an agreement on security arrangements and oil exports after several days of talks in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa.
The two sides were negotiating the implementation of a safe demilitarized border zone, which called on both Juba and Khartoum to withdraw their armies at least 10 kilometers (6 miles) from the contested border region.
Associate Press, reported that South Sudan’s negotiating team said in a statement that a key sticking point has been the demilitarization of a contested 14-mile strip of land bordering Sudan’s Darfur and South Sudan’s Northern Bahr el Ghazal states.
Meanwhile African Union High implementation Panel said that negotiation team from the two countries are continuing with dialogue.
