Military forces of Sudan and South Sudan have started to withdraw from the border parting the two countries. Sudanese Minister of Defense Abdel Rahim Muhammed Hussein made a press conference at the Khartoum Airport, on his way back from Addis Ababa on Sunday.
Hussein stated that the withdrawal would be complete within a week, according to the agreement they have signed with his South Sudanese counterpart John Kong in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa on Friday.
Hussein said that they have agreed to set up a long-delayed demilitarised buffer zone along their disputed border as soon as possible, a condition for the resumption of oil exports.
The deals, which were signed in September but were never implemented, include the restarting of Southern oil exports through northern pipelines, as well as the reopening of border points for general trade.
