ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) - The presidents of Sudan and South Sudan have agreed to the unconditional and speedy implementation of deals reached in September to demilitarize their shared border and allow oil exports to flow from South Sudan's oil fields north through Sudan's pipelines.

Sudan President Omar al-Bashir and South Sudan President Salva Kiir met on Friday and Saturday in Ethiopia's capital to revive a stalled oil exportation deal that has lagged for months over disputes on the setup of security arrangements across their borders.

AU mediator Thabo Mbeki told reporters late Saturday that the two presidents agreed for the "speedy, unconditional and coordinated" implementation of the agreements.
