JUBA, Jan 7 (Reuters) - South Sudan hopes to establish a
demilitarized zone along its border with arch-rival Sudan within
a month, paving the way for vital oil exports to resume, a
southern official said on Monday.
Sudan leader Omar Hassan al-Bashir and South Sudan's Salva
Kiir met in Ethiopia at the weekend to try to quell tensions
that have rumbled since a flare-up of violence along the
disputed border in April last year, the worst since the South
seceded in 2011.
