    South Sudan's President Salva Kiir gives a press statement after rejecting a proposal to resolve its oil crisis with its northern neighbour, in Juba

    Posted: 2/2/2012 8:29:03 AM EST
    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.
