Sudan's Bashir, says will normalise ties with S. Sudan

Sudan and South Sudan will normalise ties and start cross-border cooperation, Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir said on Friday during his first visit to the long-time foe since southern secession in 2011.
"This visit shows the start of cooperation based on a normalisation of relations between the two countries," Bashir said in a speech in the capital Juba.
South Sudan's Salva Kiir said he had agreed with Bashir to continue a dialogue to solve all outstanding conflicts between the African neighbours.
