Sudan has pledged to end fighting with South Sudan and abide by the terms of aUN resolution passed yesterday.
In a statement, Sudan said it “welcomes the U.N. Security Council resolution which was issued on Wednesday” and would "fully commit to what has been issued in the resolution about stopping hostilities with South Sudan according to the time limits issued".
It added that it hoped the "other party will commit to stop the hostilities completely and withdraw its troops from the disputed areas so as not to put SAF [Sudanese Armed Forces] in a situation where it has to defend itself".
The resolution called on both sides to cease armed hostilities immediately and to commit to an African Union roadmap, which gives the neighbours until Tuesday to restart negotiations and another three months to reach an agreement.
South Sudan has already said it accepts the resolution and the terms of the AU roadmap, paving the way for a resumption of negotiations.
