Sudan to Start Talks With South Over Disputed Abyei, Border

Nov. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Sudan will start talks tomorrow with South Sudan over the disputed region of Abyei and parts of their shared border that aren’t properly demarcated, according to Khartoum-based Foreign Ministry spokesman Al-Obaid Murawih.

South Sudan said last week that Sudan was pulling out of the talks in the Ethiopian Capital Addis Ababa.

The African Union is facilitating talks between the two neighbors to deal with outstanding issues after South Sudan gained independence from Sudan in July. That includes the fees landlocked South Sudan will pay to transport its oil through a pipeline running across the north.
