WAU, 25 June 2012 [Gurtong] - Hassan told Gurtong the talks organised under the auspices of the African Union mediation should clearly define the implementation of the various resolutions passed.

“Lasting peace will be attained once Sudan accepts the January 1956 border zone between the two countries. South Sudan needs this so as to be able to provide services to its citizens, especially those in disputed border areas”, he said.

The Governor urged the international community to support the ongoing talks in a bid to normalise the frosty relations between the two states.

“Establishment of a border conflict resolution mechanism will allow the economic ties between Sudan and South Sudan. The closure of the borders after South Sudan’s independence last year has dented the economy of the two countries”, said Hassan.

The African Union and the United Nations have  demanded that Sudan and South Sudan to put an end to their hostilities as stipulated in the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) before the beginning of August 2nd this year.
