AU appointed negotiator Mbeki brings the two Sudans together
Posted by African Press International on August 13, 2012
South Sudan and Sudan became two seperate countries from July 2011. Immediately thereafter, they started fighting one another due to disagreement on how to share resources.
After many killings, loses on both sides, the African Union saw reason to intervene. Negotiator Mbeki the former South African president was tasked to bring the two parties to the table.
He can now report that the two countries have agreed on a formular to share oil revenue. The one point remaining is when to start exportation of oil.
The dispute almost brought the two countries into a full war in April this year.
