KHARTOUM, Sept. 3 (Xinhua) -- Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir said Tuesday he and his South Sudanese counterpart Salva Kiir Mayardit have agreed on the continuation of the South's oil flow through Sudan's territories.
Al-Bashir said the two sides have also agreed to develop their ties in a manner that achieves the common interests of the two countries.
For his part, Kiir reiterated his country's commitment to open a new page with Sudan to implement all the items of the joint cooperation agreement.
Kiir arrived in Khartoum on Tuesday for talks with al-Bashir on bilateral ties and common interests of the two countries in the fields of oil, industry, finance, security and the implementation of the agreements signed earlier by the two sides.
Kiir's visit came 72 hours ahead of the deadline set by Khartoum to halt the South's oil flow via its pipeline.
Earlier, Khartoum gave Juba 60 days to stop supporting the rebels in Sudan or it would cease the exportation of South Sudan's oil through the Sudanese territories.
