ADDIS ABABA - Former civil war foes Sudan and South Sudan are expected to resume security talks on June 21, a South Sudanese official said on Friday, after negotiations to help ward off a relapse into conflict floundered this week.

The longtime rivals, which split apart last year, have clashed repeatedly in their contested borderlands, while rows over oil payments have continued to stoke tensions.

The two edged dangerously close to resuming full-blown war in April when Juba seized the Heglig oil region, before withdrawing in the face of international pressure.

African Union-mediated talks to create a demilitarized zone resumed last week, but broke off on Thursday over conflicting versions of a boundary line, which both presented in lengthy press conferences, often coupled with jingoistic zeal.
