Sudanese President Omar al- Bashir threatened to cut South Sudan's oil exports through Sudan's pipelines if South Sudan continued supporting the rebels of the Revolutionary Front in South Kordofan, Sudan.

Al- Bashir addressed a crowd gathered in Khartoum following the capture of Abu Karshula in South Kordofan from the rebels of the Revolutionary Front saying  "If there is any support from South Sudan to the rebels  in Darfur, South Kordofan or Blue Nile, we will close the pipelines forever."

 Referring to the agreements between the  two countries, Al- Bashir said those agreements included not only oil exportation, but also not supporting the rebels of the Revolutionary Front which is fighting the government in Sudan's South Kordofan State.

"Any violation against any part of these agreements will cancel them all," said al-Bashir.

Sudan and South Sudan have recently agreed to resume exportation of South Sudan's oil through Sudan's pipelines as part of the implementation of a cooperation agreements signed in Ethiopia in 2012.
