Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma congratulated leaders of Sudan and South Sudan on an agreement reached between the two countries, the department of international relations said on Friday.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank both presidents for the leadership demonstrated by them in achieving this milestone," Zuma said in a statement.

"We are confident that Sudan and South Sudan, through the implementation of these agreements, will introduce a new era of increased co-operation and mutually beneficial co-existence of the peoples of Sudan and South Sudan."

President Omar Al-Bashir (Sudan) and President Salva Kiir Mayardit (South Sudan) agreed on a comprehensive settlement on security, soft borders, oil transportation and economic co-operation, as mediated by the African Union High Level Implementation Panel, department spokesperson Clayson Monyela said.

    Always the statesman,eh Jacob. You should be watching your back, not trying to play the international arena. At home things are getting tougher by the day. NOBODY respects you anymore. The circus is falling apart, and the clown is not funny anymore.Wake up.Jackson is hitting the bottle whilst you play your fiddle.

    Our President, in one of our country's hardest times in recent years, he is commenting on the Sudan issue, while unprotected strikes, violent truck drivers reign our streets and lands, he is as useless as Mbeki, if anything Mothlante for president
