South Sudan: no agreement reached on AbyeiListen /
Preparations to resume oil production in South Sudan will soon begin, following an agreement with Sudan on issues of security, border and the use of oil infrastructure.
That's what South Sudan's Vice-President Riek Machar Teny-Dhurgon announced to the General Assembly on Thursday.
If each country upholds its part of the agreement, noted Mr. Teny-Dhurgon, the most significant causes of dispute between the two will have been amicably resolved.
However, he adds, the oil-rich town of Abyei remains in dispute.
"President Beshir has rejected the proposal of the African Union High Implementation Panel, as stipulated under Resolution 2046 of the UN security Resolution. It is now incumbent upon the AU Peace and UN Security Council to take the necessary action for the way forward." (Duration: 27″ )
