KHARTOUM, Sudan (AP) — Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir says South Sudanese oil will continue to flow through his country's pipelines.
His decision was announced Wednesday after meeting with South Sudan's President Salva Kiir in the Sudanese capital city of Khartoum.
Earlier this year, al-Bashir had ordered the pipelines closed and accused South Sudan of supporting rebel movements in his country. But the decision was never implemented.
In comments carried by the official Sudan News Agency, al-Bashir said the two presidents agreed to "remove all obstacles" in relations and fully implement cooperation agreements, including the flow of South Sudan's oil for export through Sudanese pipelines.
In a joint statement after their meeting, the two said discussions were carried out in a positive environment and with a strong political will to reach understandings.
