Sudan Announces Pullout from Contested Area in South

Sudan announced, Monday, that it will withdraw all its forces from contested areas on its border with South Sudan. A Sudanese army spokesman said that the action is intended to remove the main obstacle in the negotiations between the two countries.

In recent talks, South Sudan accused the north of bombing its territory and killing ten people. Sudan denied the allegations.
