Arbitration deal on Sudan's oil


news.bbc.co.uk

Northern and southern Sudan have agreed to abide by international arbitration on the status of an oil-producing region both sides want to control.

Agreement was reached in Washington at talks mediated by US President Barack Obama's envoy to Sudan, Scott Gration.

Both sides said they would accept a ruling due next month from the Court of Arbitration in The Hague.

The dispute, over the region of Abyei, threatens a peace deal signed four years ago to end a 22-year civil war.

I am glad the 22 year old war may be at an end, I just also feel that any agreement will not change the atrocities that have been committed during the twenty two or so years. The oil may be in the southern portion of Sudan but there is still the genocide which was going on in the Dafur region. With the amount of money that is involved with the oil resource what ever the out come is I fear there is going to be more violence.
