USA has welcomed the signing of the agreement between South Sudan and Sudan concerning their border dispute.

The agreement was signed last week on March 8th 2013. This comes after several deadly battles between the two countries which led to death of both soldiers and civilians.

A statement issued by department spokesperson, in the office of the spokesman, Victorua Nuland said. ‘The United States welcomes the technical agreement signed between  Sudan and South Sudan establishing a Safe Demilitarized Border Zone (SDBZ), a firm timeline for the withdrawal of forces, and a way ahead  for the deployment of a joint border monitoring force.

‘At the same time, the parties should begin the immediate  implementation of all nine September 27 Cooperation Agreements. Each  of these agreements should be implemented independently without  conditions or delay.

‘We commend the parties, the African Union High-Level Implementation  Panel and the UN Interim Security Force for Abyei for their continued  efforts to implement the African Union Roadmap and UN Security Council  Resolution 2046.’
