New Sudan/South Sudan oil deal likely to hold
Issued on: Modified:
Sudan and South Sudan have signed another deal to restart the flow of oil from south to north. South Sudan last year shut down the pipelines that allow it to export oil via Port Sudan. Analyst Aly-Khan Satchu says this agreement, unlike previous ones, is likely to hold, mainly because Khartoum and Juba no longer approach each other like sparring partners.
