HE Pa'gan Amum, Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) Secretary General and Chief Negotiator of the Republic of South Sudan
Chair: Alex Vines OBE, Research Director, Area Studies and International Law; and Head, Africa Programme, Chatham House


In the last few weeks there has been increased militarization in the border areas of Sudan and South Sudan. Dispute over the ownership of oil-producing Heglig and the aerial bombing of Bentiu in South Sudan has led to noises about war from both sides. HE Pa’gan Amum will discuss the increased tensions between Sudan and South Sudan and give his thoughts about how to solve the pressing issues of security, oil revenue sharing and border demarcation in order to prevent further deterioration in relations.
