4 August 2010 (Al-Rai al-Aam, UNMIS Media Monitoring Report)

The NCP and the SPLM have resolved to address all outstanding issues in the implementation of the CPA ahead of the 2011 referendum and to respect the choice of the people of southern Sudan at the self-determination vote. The two sides agreed at the conclusion of a workshop in Cairo on the referendum to conduct the exercise on schedule. A joint statement issued at the wake of the meeting also revealed that they also underlined the need to develop appropriate channels of cooperation between the north and south of the country and to preserve the historic ties between the people in the border areas between the two sides. They also agreed to conclude the border demarcation exercise before 2011.

The two sides also resolved to exert sincere efforts to overcome the obstacles to the implementation of the Abyei Protocol and to conduct Popular Consultations for the Blue Nile Area and Southern Kordofan as prescribed by the CPA.
