North and south Sudan have agreed in principle to accept a ruling by the Permanent Court of Arbitration which hands control of an oilfield and grasslands to the north.

The Hague was called upon to redraw the borders of the oil-rich Abyei region which became a bone of contention during a 22-year-long civil war between north and south Sudanese forces. Both sides now appear content with ruling. The judges reduced the size of the area from the 2005 peace accord. Though it appears the north has been handed more, the region’s people will get the chance to vote in a referendum in 2011 on who governs Abyei, north or south, and the new demographics suggest Abyei will go to the south.
