KHARTOUM - The United States is urging Sudan and armed opposition groups in Blue Nile state to immediately start talks to end fighting, the US Special envoy for Sudan said on Wednesday.

Princeton Lyman also told reporters after talks with Sudan's Foreign Minister Ali Ahmed Karti that Washington wanted to continue to normalize ties with Khartoum but violence in Blue Nile and South Kordofan states was an obstacle.

Last week fighting erupted in the northern state of Blue Nile between the Sudanese army and armed groups allied to the southern ruling Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM).
