BASHIR TO MAKE 1ST VISIT TO SOUTH SUDAN SINCE SPLIT

Muslim World

Sudan’s President Omar Bashir will visit South Sudan for the first time since its independence next week, an official said, cementing new deals on oil and border security between the two countries. The African neighbours agreed this month to resume cross-border oil flows and defuse tensions that have plagued them since South Sudan seceded in July 2011 following an agreement which ended decades of civil war. Bashir had originally planned to visit Juba a year ago but cancelled the trip when border skirmishes between the countries’ armies in April brought them close to a full-blown conflict. He has now accepted an invitation from his southern counterpart Salva Kiir to go to South Sudan’s capital Juba next week. The two countries went their separate ways without resolving a long list of disputes over the ownership of disputed territory, the legal status of each other’s citizens and how much the landlocked south should pay to transport its oil through Sudan.
