KHARTOUM - South Sudan's chief negotiator said on Sunday he had held successful meetings with Sudan's defense minister and other officials, in an attempt to resolve a border security dispute and restart southern oil exports, but gave no further details.

The two former civil war foes agreed at talks in Ethiopia in September to end hostilities and restart oil exports - including creating a demilitarized border zone - after coming close to war in April.

But the neighbors have been unable to agree how to withdraw their armies from the disputed border, a step both had said was necessary to resume oil exports from landlocked South Sudan through Sudanese pipelines.

On Sunday, South Sudan's chief negotiator Pagan Amum said he had met with Sudan's Defense Minister Abdel Raheem Mohammed Hussein as well as senior official Nafie Ali Nafie and others.

"The meetings were successful and we will continue to hold meetings," he Amum told reporters in Khartoum, without elaborating.
