Sudan says may review decision to halt oil flow to south

Published: Updated:

Sudan may reverse its decision to close cross-border oil flows from South Sudan but its neighbor must stop supporting rebels, Sudan's Information Minister said on Sunday.

“We plan to close the oil pipelines within 60 days... but we might reverse the decision,” Ahmed Belal Osman told reporters. “The door is open for rational thinking... but we won't allow the support of rebels.”

Sudan said on Saturday it would halt oil exports from the landlocked South through northern oil facilities due to Juba's alleged backing of rebels operating on Sudanese soil.
