The presidents of Sudan and South Sudan have signed a series of eight agreements today in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The agreements address security, trade, oil, and citizenship. They are a major step forward.
However, several issues including the final status of Abyei area remain outstanding. The agreements also do not cover the conflict in the “two areas” of Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile.
