Sudan lifts threat to halt South oil exports

Leaders of Sudan and South Sudan agree to implement peace deal signed last year.

    Salva Kiir, South Sudan's president, has held bilateral talks with Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir in Khartoum to discuss the outstanding issues that remain following secession in 2011.

    As a result of the meeting, Bashir lifted a threat to block South Sudan's oil exports. The two sides also agreed to implement a peace deal signed last year.
