May 20, 2012 (JUBA) - South Sudan on Sunday said it is time the international community imposes "steep sanctions" on the government of neighbouring Sudan for its "deliberate" failure to comply with a UN Security Council (UNSC) resolution calling for an end to hostilities and the immediate withdrawal of troops from the contested region of Abyei.

Speaking in an interview with Sudan Tribune on Sunday, minister of information and media affairs, Barnaba Marial Benjamin said his government and people believe it is time the international community comes up with a “joint and clear position” to impose sanctions on Khartoum to withdraw troops from Abyei and to resume negotiations over oil and border disputes.

The UN Interim Security Force for Abyei (UNISFA) was established in June 2011 after Sudanese troops took control of Abyei, displacing tens of thousands of people in the weeks before South Sudan became an independent state.

In the UNSC resolution, the Council welcomed the withdrawal of South Sudanese military and police personnel from Abyei and demanded that Khartoum also redeploy all remaining military and police personnel from Abyei immediately and without preconditions.

Marial said that Khartoum "has not only been making statements rejecting resolution of the Security Council which we have already implemented, but you find that they are not interested in withdrawing troops from Abyei."

He said Khartoum is placing "illogical and unjustifiable" demands on withdrawing troops from Abyei and conditions to resuming talks over post-independence issues with the intention of “buying time”.

Marial claimed that "our team is ready" for discussions “but we have not heard from them [mediators] what Khartoum has said, instead we are reading from their media unjustified demands.”

Despite Khartoum’s positive talk, Marial claimed it has been carrying out aerial bombardments in areas inside the territories of South Sudan, after the UN issued a resolution on May 2. The resolution demanded the neighbours to cease hostilities with immediate effect and activate Joint Border Verifications Mechanisms (JBVM) and resume talks.

"They have violated all aspects of the resolution of the Security Council. So it is time the global community extends their support to the decision of the UNSC and imposes steep sanctions [...] against Khartoum," said Marial.

He also expressed his disappointment in what he described as the "reluctance" of both the UNSC and the African Union Peace and Security Council (AUPSC) to hold Khartoum responsible for its failure to abide by their demands, instead routinely defying the international community’s calls to withdraw troops from Abyei.

Marial said that his government would be forced to reconsider its position on Abyei.

“We have constitutional obligations and responsibility to protect the lives of our citizens and their properties. The citizens of Abyei are therefore no exception. They have the right to be protected by this government if the UN fails to take action," he said.

Abyei is a contested region, which was due for a referendum in January 2011 to allow residents to determine whether the area would remain in Sudan or become part of South Sudan.

However, the two sides disagree on with groups have legitimate claims to be considered residents. For this reason and the inability for the Khartoum and Juba to set up the body to implement the vote.

With regards to the traditionally Khartoum-aligned, nomadic Misseriya, who spend part of the year in Abyei, Marial said they, along with “allied militia groups" are "under the command of the Sudanese government in Khartoum to raid villages and take away cattle. They have so far taken over 600 heads of cattle and 195 goats. This happened on the 1, 3 and 10 May."

Marial added that the people of Abyei and South Sudan are losing faith in the global community, and in the UN in particular, due to the way they have dealt with the conflict between Juba and Khartoum.

      Nice game Juba and US are playing. Fake withdrawal from Abyei so the US can call for sanctions in the UN. You 2 are nasty dirty ! Abyei by LAW is in North Sudan - 1/1/56. Cry all you want, No one can order troops out of its territory. Until a referendum is completed and people clearly state they want to be in the South - Abyei is NORTH. Draw all the maps and cry all you want - Kiss my Blue butt

        Kiir, it is time for the SPLA to move in and retake Panthou and Abyei from those thugs. UN Security Council is a toothless dog that has betrayed South Sudan. Khartoum will not withdraw and the UN will not force it out. We are being cheated by this ignorant institution.

          The former President of South Africa H.E Thabo Mbeki is double standard,in khartoum he said a diffrent thing and in Juba he said a diffrent thing! There is a Proverb which says clean your own house before you clean someone house!!
          Thabo Mbeki was weak in his country,south Africa,how can it be possible he can be fair with south sudan? His coments shows he was bribed by the thug Omar Albashir.

          In conclusion, the NCP is indeed the obstacle to peaceful co-existence between South Sudan and Sudan, and within Sudan. If a poll was taken it would be most probable that the overwhelming majority of people in Sudan would prefer peaceful co-existence to Sudan belligerence. Also if a poll was taken in South Sudan the majority of people might agree to share resources with Sudan on the basis of mutua

                          Did your ancestors consider themselves *Arabs*!? The answer is of course a resounding no! To the people of Kush, Irtjet, Yam, Wawat, Setjau, Medijay (the Beja) and those of Kemet (’Egypt’) -before the Arab conquest- ... Arabs were merely unsophisticated desert wanderers, bereft of the qualities of civilization.

                            You speak Arabic and *some* of us speak English... the essential difference is that we do not consider ourselves English in the ethnic sense, by virtue of our use of the English language.

        "With regards to the traditionally Khartoum-aligned, nomadic Misseriya, who spend part of the year in Abyei, Marial said they, along with ’allied militia groups’ are ’under the command of the Sudanese government in Khartoum to raid villages and take away cattle. They have so far taken over 600 herds of cattle and 195 goats. This happened on the 1, 3 and 10 May.’"

        I believed now that SPLA learnt a very valuable lesson! You were fooled to full out in your own territory at Panthou last April, now the SAF refuse to full out inside South Sudan! So, how do you like that now?

          Daniel, may be you are dreaming about your country Australia, but SS is a place from where you could get money transfer, if the oil pipe-line opens again. You are Australian now, your kids will be Australians and will never live in SS! Keep dreaming, Daniel!

      Problem is your government of insects and thieves lie and distract you hungry brains (average IQ of 10) with War and hate. South Sudan will only be civilized when it actually starts to feed and educate its people. As long as the insect guerrilla, jungle creeps called SPLM rule south sudan, its people will continue to act like apes !

      Why call for "steep" sanctions on Sudan over Abyei?
      Sanctions can`t work this time,it is the time for action!
      The dancing ground was south sudan from 1956 to 2005,
      now is the turn of North sudan ,now we have to dance in the North,whether khartoum it like or not!! Luti (Gays) people don`t negotiate,they understand only the luanguage of gun and bullets TelmeWhich negotiations sudan agreed pacefully?

      To Gay call Darkangel,

      the only way Khartoum can make it is to surrender give it up boys the time is over

      the situation is getting worse day in day out

      SRF is the only hope left for old Sudan to make it
      people in Khartoum are already talking about SPLM/North the direction is changing
      by the way that’s is only hope left for Sudan

      Mohammed, I thought you are wise but you become dumb these days. How could you talk about security arrangements without border demarcation? First, the issue of borders must be settled before talking on the issue of security because talking about security will make sense if each of the country knows what its borders are. The issue disputed areas including Panthou (Helglig) must be settled first,

        And then the issue of citizenship because those nomadic tribes like Misseryia will be vulnerable if "Four Freedoms" between North Sudan and South Sudan. I don’t care about oil talk because our oil will stay safe down there until the time the pipeline will be constructed. I have seen your politicians campaigning about talking on security first but it is due to lack of reasoning. Borders first.

How many time they bomb south? after SPLA withdrawal in Abyei, how many cattle,goats,sheep, and property of Dinka Ngok looted? This is a time for South to think about their population in Abyei than fake resolution that Omar invade.

    You had never been to Juba since 2005 otherwise you would have lay witness to how South Sudan do its business with Sisterly countries of Eastern Africa. Juba knows ever since that nothing good ever come from North Sudan. Remember this, you don’t have to curse Marial Benjamin, but your NCP. Slowly but surely NCP is taking your country toward another SANCTION.

    GOS made its position clear since Abeyi protocol. No other agreement can overide abeyi protocol. We will withdraw under the conditions we have set to avoid power vacum and we will defend Abeyi protocol until it is implemented to the last line. No misseriya means no Abeyi. It is you who should be sanctioned for "ILLEGALLY" attacking higlieg not us for defending Abeyi.
