ADDIS ABABA - Leaders of north and south Sudan agreed on Monday to continue talks over a series of disputes after the south's looming secession, officials said, a move that will disappoint diplomats hoping for a quick deal.

Sudan's oil-producing south is due to declare independence in less than a week on July 9, a split agreed in a January referendum promised in a 2005 north/south peace deal.

Both sides, who fought each other during decades of civil war, have yet to agree on the position of their shared border and how they will manage oil revenues. The north's army and south-linked fighters have also been clashing in Southern Kordofan, the north's main oil state in recent days, according to the United Nations.
