South Sudan: could restart oil by year-end after Sudan talks

KHARTOUM, Dec 2 (Reuters) - South Sudan could resume oil exports through Sudan by the end of the year, the South’s chief negotiator Pagan Amum said on Sunday, after meeting with Sudan’s defence minister and other officials in Khartoum.

“By the end of this year it is possible to load the first ship of oil, especially after the agreement in the meetings today and yesterday,” Amum told reporters.

“Implementation will begin in the coming days,” he added.
