North, south leaders meet on referendum
KHARTOUM | Northern and southern Sudanese leaders resumed negotiations on Tuesday on the ramifications of southern independence early next year, such as the distribution of oil wealth.
South Sudan, home to much of the country’s proven oil reserves, is set to hold an independence referendum in January as part of a peace agreement that ended two decades of civil war in 2005.
The first round of talks between the southern Sudan People’s Liberation Movement and the ruling National Congress Party began on July 20.
The talks center on four points: citizenship, security, the economy and the sharing of oil revenues. They are meant to ensure a peaceful conclusion to the vote.
Under the 2005 peace agreement, the south is entitled to 50 percent of the wealth despite sitting on most of the reserves.

MUMBAI | A fuel leak has been plugged in a container ship that struck another cargo vessel and spewed 500 tons of oil into the Arabian Sea, India’s government said Tuesday.
