Decades of conflict have decimated trade between the two nuclear armed South Asian neighbors. Now, with peace efforts between the rivals stalled, officials are hoping that trade could lead the way to easing tensions. They have liberalized their commercial ties, inaugurated a new border depot and promised to throw open their economies to each other by the end of the year. (AP Photo/Altaf Qadri)

    South Sudan's President Salva Kiir gives a press statement on his reasons for rejecting an African Union proposal to resolve its oil crisis with its northern neighbour, in Juba February 2, 2012. South Sudan has totally shut down oil output in a row with Sudan over export transit fees and will only restart after the two reach a deal covering border security and the disputed Abyei region, its oil minister said on Sunday. Landlocked South Sudan took about three-quarters of Sudan's oil output when it broke away, but still needs pipelines running through its northern neighbour to export crude.
