The Arab League on Thursday condemned South Sudan's "military aggression" against Heglig, saying the oil-rich border region belongs to Sudan.

A statement by Arab foreign ministers meeting in Cairo also supported what it called Sudan's right to defend itself and called on South Sudan to respect the borders between the two nations and stop what it called its support for rebel movements in Sudan's western Darfur region, south Kordofan and Blue Nile.
