South Sudan withdraws from border with Sudan

Published: 01.17.13, 18:34 / Israel News

South Sudan says it is withdrawing its troops from a disputed border region with Sudan so that a demilitarized zone can be established.


The decision could be a first step toward South Sudan getting its oil industry online again. The south hasn't pumped oil since early in 2012, depriving its impoverished government of needed funds. The oil flows through pipelines in Sudan, and Khartoum has also seen a steep drop in revenues because of the south's oil shutdown. (AP)
