September 2, 2017 (KHARTOUM) - Sudan’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Investment Mubarak al-Fadil Saturday said Sudan and South Sudan would hold bilateral talks next week to discuss ways to develop oil production.

Al-Fadil told the official news agency SUNA, that “joint talks will be held next week with ministers from South Sudan to develop oil production and discuss ways to benefit from this production”.

Juba and Khartoum have recently signed a framework agreement to promote the economic cooperation and particularly on trade and oil between the two countries.
According to the agreement, Sudan would provide the personnel, electricity and technical assistance to restart the oil fields in South Sudan.

Sudan lost 75% of its oil reserves after the secession of South Sudan in July 2011. Oil revenue constituted more than half of the Sudan’s revenue and 90% of its exports.

KIIR TO VISIT KHARTOUM

Meanwhile, Sudan’s Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour told SUNA that he expects South Sudan’s President Silva Kiir Mayardit to arrive in Khartoum at any time.

He said President Omer al-Bashir and Mayardit have earlier agreed on the visit, hoping it would open a new chapter in relations between the two countries.

    Riek Machar-Pagan Amum and Lam Akol they think that they’re the only ones who knows how to talk to Sudan government’s, but my advice to you is that, Sudan people they want a real talk, I mean business talk not a politics talk and not a friendly talk I mean original business talk, we are not going to play anymore about business like Riek Machar-Pagan Amum and Lam Akol because they used to

    South Sudan is only politically independent but it is economically still being badly colonized by Sudan through oil economy( Pipeline fees, transit fees, refineries, and port rent) all in billions of dollars in fact more than the share of South Sudan. South Sudan should quickly open other oil routes( South Sudan-DRC Congo, South Sudan - Kenya, South Sudan - Ethio-Djibuti, South Sudan -CAR-Cameroon

    and refineries inside South Sudan, and air tanks/planes. We cannot allow ourselves to be cheated in broad day light like the current scenario between South Sudan and Sudan. It is a " Not Yet Uhuru " situation here in South Sudan.
