The close-door talks concentrated on how the two countries should better the implementation of the deal, Dr. Barnaba Marial, the South Sudan Minister of Foreign Affairs told press after the meeting.

“She briefed the President on all the issues which are related to the Cooperation Agreement, the commitment of the Republic of South Sudan towards implementing the Cooperation Agreement, on the issues of Abyei, on the issues of border demarcation, the issues related to European Union particularly the continuo agreement,” Marial said.

Rosalind had also called Sudan and South Sudan to accept the AU proposal on the conduct of the Abyei referendum.

The Cooperation Agreement, a deal stroke in September last year had defined how best the two long term foes; Sudan and South Sudan should finalize the remaining protocols of the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreements (CPA).

Until April, the effort of the two countries was hardly realized on the full implementation of the deal.

However, in recent days the international community has lauded for their commitment following high-level talks between the South Sudanese President Salva Kiir and Sudanese President Omar Hassan Al Bashir held last month in Khartoum.
