South Sudan's chief negotiator has met with Sudanese officials for talks on security and economic concerns.

Pagan Amum described Sunday's meeting with Sudan's Defense Minister Abdelrahim Mohamed Hussein and senior official Nafie Alie Nafie as successful, but gave no further details on the specifics of the talks.

Sudan and South Sudan signed a deal in September to resolve a dispute over fees the South pays Khartoum to export its crude through pipelines, refineries, and a port in the north. But the agreement has not taken effect with the two sides disagreeing on how to withdraw troops from the disputed border region.

Sudan and South Sudan went to the brink of war in April after the south occupied a northern oilfield. Relations between the two countries have been mostly rocky since the South declared independence last year.

Some information for this report was provided by AFP and Reuters.

Our peace negation tore Comrade Pagan Amum Akech, said that
Sudan is going to allow our South Sudan Oil to be pass through their mine pipeline to Port-Sudan at the end of this month
And I am sure that Sudan is going to cancel this agreement soon before the implementation ; because Sudan have higher experience of canceling hysterical agreements ;
Like Anyanya one’s leader: Joseph Laku agreement with Sudan, in 1972 in Addis Ababa Ethiopia and some protocols in CPA like Border demarcation, Abyei referendum poplar consultation in Nuba Mountain & Blue Nile and some agreement after we separate from Sudan in July 2011 up to now no agreement implemented by Sudan.
So this agreement is going to reject soon by Sudan government when it rich to the time of implementation
