PM Meles Zenawi has been helping mediating between Sudan and S.Sudan from his sick bed

Tigrai Online, August 18, 2012

Despite the illness he was suffering, Ethiopia’s Prime Minister, Meles Zenawi, didn’t quit to playing diplomatic role in the ongoing efforts to resolve Sudan-South Sudan outstanding issues.

According to AU officials, Zenawi has - from his sick bed - been supporting the Africa Union mediating panel during the latest round of Khartoum-Juba negotiating talks that saw a break-through in reaching deal on oil transit fees between the two former rival neighboring countries.

Ethiopia is seen as honest broker by both Sudan and South Sudan and has been a host nation for number of post-secession negotiation meetings over a number of pending issues remaining from the 2005 comprehensive peace agreement that ended decades of bloody civil war.

The Ethiopian government and Prime Minister Meles Zenawi in person have been exerting maximum efforts in pushing and encouraging the two parties to narrow their differences and peacefully resolve their dispute.

Sources inside the African Union headquarters in Addis Ababa said illness didn’t stop Zenawi from following up the Sudan peace talks and he has been in regular contact with the chief mediator for North-South Sudan peace talks, former South African president, Thabo Mbeki.
