KHARTOUM - Sudan will impose monthly fees on crude oil flowing from the newly-independent south until the two nations reach an agreement on transport payments, Sudan's President Omar Bashir said on Wednesday, in a hardening of Sudan's position.

Bashir, addressing a delegation from the Sudanese parliament, said landlocked South Sudan was benefiting for now from an absence of mandatory transport fees but that its stance in talks showed it was not serious about reaching an agreement.

"Because of this we had taken a unilateral decision to impose passage fees on the crude oil every month, and this is our right," Bashir said.
