On Friday, the arch-adversaries reached an interim deal on how much South Sudan should pay toexport its crude via Sudan, ending a row that led to the shutdown of southern oil production in January. Oil is the lifeline for both economies.
The accord marked a step forward towards ending hostilities between the nations that came close tooutright war after border fighting flared in April.
But north and south have yet to mark their disputed border and improve frontier security, one of several complicated issues left over when South Sudan became independent in July 2011 under a 2005 peace deal with Khartoum.
African Union-sponsored bilateral talks on remaining issues will resume on Aug. 26, El-Obeid Morawah, a spokesman for the Sudanese foreign ministry, told SUNA.
He said the oil pact would be signed in the coming days but be implemented only after a border security agreement had been reached. "Security ... is the priority for the government," he added.
There was no immediate comment from the South Sudanese in Juba.
