Sudan will continue to allow passage of South Sudan's oil exports
KHARTOUM (Reuters) - Sudan will continue to allow South Sudan to export its oil through northern pipelines and Port Sudan port, President Omar Hassan al-Bashir said on Tuesday.
"The agreements we signed call for the transport of South Sudan's oil through Sudan's facilities and ports," Bashir said at a meeting with South Sudan's President Salva Kiir.
Sudan had threatened to close the two export pipelines with the landlocked South unless Juba gave up support for rebels operating across the shared border. Juba denies the allegation.
