Tomori, NCMP – The head of the joint Boundary Demarcation Commission, Moaz Tengo, told reporters in Juba earlier this month that the meetings of the technical committee, held under the auspices of the African Union, will last a week.He further mentioned that they will then move to Khartoum and continue the negotiations on November 12.

The Commission will meet today in Khartoum as scheduled to continue the latest round of negotiations aimed at defining their shared border.

Having lingered on for nearly a decade since South Sudan seceded from Sudan in 2011, the border dispute is one of the major conflicts between the two countries.

According to the foreign brief website, the Joint Commission signed a border demarcation agreement in October 2019, several disputed areas remained, particularly due to the oil-rich nature of borderlands. The failure of the October agreement became apparent when a brutal attack in the disputed Abyei province killed 32 people in January.

Considering the recent trend of cooperation between the neighbors, there is a glimmer of hope in the negotiations currently underway.

Last month, Sudan signed a historic peace treaty with Darfur-based militias responsible for the country’s decades-long security crisis. South Sudan played a mediating role in the talks. Simultaneously, the neighbors signed a cooperation deal on oil production in a South Sudan oil field. 

The current rapprochement and ongoing negotiations are promising. Still, any political settlement will remain fragile on the ground due to the minimized presence of UN forces in disputed areas, making a potential outbreak of violence difficult to control.
