Newly independent South Sudan has signed new agreements with foreign oil companies to replace deals made by the previously unified Sudan.

South Sudan’s oil minister has confirmed to VOA that representatives of the Chinese, Malaysian and Indian national oil companies signed deals in the southern capital of Juba Friday.


This is probably the reason the White House announced the export of defense related armaments to South Sudan, and U.S. military officers.
