Sudan: Khartoum, Juba delegations to meet in Addis next week

Khartoum, Sudan (PANA) - The African Union High-level Implementation Panel (AUHIP) has invited Sudan and South Sudan to an extraordinary meeting in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, next weekend to resume discussions on pending issues and the implementation of the 2012 cooperation agreement between the two countries.

The Director of the African Union Liaison Office in Khartoum, Ambassador Mahmoud Kann, told reporters on Monday that the two countries have agreed to attend the two-day meeting.

He said the Sudanese delegation would be led by Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour and would include the Minister of State for the Interior and the Armed Forces Chief of Staff, while the South Sudanese delegation would be led by Information Minister Mickael Makwe and would include the Chief of Staff of the Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA) and another SPLA general.

The two sides concluded a number of agreements a year after they agreed on the separation of the South which formed a new independent state. However, they failed to implement those agreements, with Khartoum and Juba accusing each other of being behind the stalemate.
