Russia urges Sudan, South Sudan to obey peace agreement


10:13, April 13, 2012

MOSCOW, April 12 (Xinhua) -- Russia called on Sudan and South Sudan Thursday to obey the Comprehensive Peace Agreement and not to undermine stability in the region.

"Moscow firmly expects both sides will rigorously obey the obligations of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement and other agreements reached at the stage of formation of South Sudanese statehood," the Russian Foreign Ministry said on its website.

The conflict between Khartoum and Juba seriously undermined the process of establishing good-neighborly relations and dimmed constructive cooperation between the two sides, it said.

The escalated conflict threatened the region's peace and stability, the ministry said.

Russia also called on Sudan and South Sudan, as well as the African Union, to devote additional efforts to immediately ending hostilities and returning the two sides to the negotiating table.

Sudan and South Sudan have been at odds over how much the landlocked South should pay to export its oil through Sudan.

The Sudanese parliament announced Wednesday a general mobilization and stopped negotiations with South Sudan following a large-scale attack by the South Sudanese army on a strategic region of Heglieg.

South Sudan became independent from Sudan in July last year, six years after the signing of a peace agreement that ended decades of warfare between the north and the south.
