African Union committee and the zero-line

Author : Staff Writer | Published: Wednesday, August 7, 2013

A special committee from the African Union is determining the zero-line which will assist in establishing a demilitarized zone between South Sudan and Sudan.

The committee has determined three potential zero- line areas, prior to the determination of the temporary zero-line according to the Sudanese Al-Ray Al-Am newspaper.

Last week, a security committee meeting of officials from the Military Intelligence agencies from South Sudan and Sudan met in Juba to discuss allegations of support being given to rebels fighting both governments.

The committee agreed to meet next week.

A senior government official, Michael Makuei Lueth told Eye Radio that a delegation of the committee has already arrived in Kadugli, in South Kordofan.

’’There is a committee that has already travelled. The Joint Security Committee will go to Kadugli and they will go to all the areas, he said. “This is the work of the Joint Political and Security Mechanism Committee on the temporary security arrangements.’’

On September 27 last year, Khartoum and Juba signed several agreements on the issues of security, status of citizens, border, oil and others.
