April 28, 2012 (KHARTOUM) — Sudanese foreign minister, Ali Ahmed Karti, on Saturday rejected the involvement of United Nations Security Council in the resolution of outstanding issues with the South Sudan.

Following the recent clashes between the two countries over Heglig, the African Union Peace and Security council adopted a seven point road map demanding the two countries resume talks and reach a negotiated settlement to all the pending matters with three months.

As requested by the African Union, the UN Security Council is considering a text of a resolution prepared by the Council chief for April US Ambassador Susan Rice, who is seen as hostile to Khartoum.

The draft resolution allows the 15-member Council to "take appropriate additional measures" under article 41 of Chapter VII that allows to impose sanctions to give effect to its decisions.

These sanctions "may include complete or partial interruption of economic relations and of rail, sea, air, postal, telegraphic, radio, and other means of communication, and the severance of diplomatic relations," as provided in the article 41.

"Sudan confirms that it rejects any efforts to disturb the African Union role and take the situation between Sudan and South Sudan to the UN Security Council," Foreign Minister Ali Karti said .

The minister in a statement released Saturday renewed Sudan’s confidence in the African Union and its organs the Peace and Security Council and the high-level mechanism headed by former South African president Thabo Mbeki.

"However, any action to abort this role, or skip it can not help us in laying the foundations of peace and security in Sudan, especially under the current situation," the minister further emphasised.

Sudanese officials said recently that the settlement of security issues should be the first issue to discuss between the two countries before tackling other issues.

Presidential adviser, Mustafa Osman Ismail, said on Saturday that Sudan would resume the AU process on the outstanding issues with South Sudan only if Juba withdraw its militias from the Sudanese territory.

The official was referring to the combatants of Sudan People’s Liberation Movement – North (SPLM-N) who are fighting the Sudanese army in the Nuba Mountains of South Kordofan and Blue Nile.

Karti said several days ago that Juba should stop its support to the rebel groups in the bordering areas.

The SPLM-N, and three Darfurian groups the Justice and Equality Movement, two factions of Sudan Liberation Movement led by Abdel Wahid al-Nur and Minni Minnawi sealed an alliance last November aiming to bring down the Sudanese regime.

    South Sudan don’t need Africa Union either but IGAD which was the mediator of 2005 sudan peace. Another thing is that SPLA North was under CPA but you NCP interrupt their right through vow to solve all problem by war. while South already separated with Sudan. So, it is only your mess. We know you don’t listen to border issue because you don’t have rights in disputed areas and other areas.

Sudan and not welcome when they need to be nearby to know exactly what is happening. i think you are afraid that if they come in, they will of course know who is telling lies and stealing the oil of others. let them come in, they ’re same UNSC during Panthou crisis

    "If South Sudan withdraw it militia in Sudanese territories" which mean that Khartoum govt need only land but don’t need people. Nuba and Blue Nile are Africa and so, South Sudanese people go with their brothers and sisters and leave land to Arab. That is rights, the world hear that very well. That is why they bomb them without question from the world.

    It is only through the security council that the remaining issues between sudan & South Sudan can be resolved. AU is full of Islamic oriented republics in Africa. If the world want peace between these two countries, let the UNSC intervene in these pending issues between the two sudans

      Sudan is now sending out lies through their media (Akbaar Alyom newspaper) that our leader Pagan Amum has disappeared while they don’t know that Amum with his team is now putting diplomatic things in a correct position in Europe. they will see soon how the world is going to tackle issues after knowing the facts and who is who in this conflict. Amum, just walk and leave the dog barking as they say

    Is the world ready to wait for incessant murder of the innocents - childen, women and the old for no sound reasons. In any case there is no justification for killing a human being and most especially for greed, plunder and imperialism. Jallaba has no reason to fight for what is clearly belongings of the people of South Sudan. Refusal to accept UN to step in to sort the mess is cover for wrong.

    First and foremost, it has to be for the peoples (through their governments) of Sudan and South Sudan to sort these problems out but negotiations for a whole range of reasons have failed and therefore the AU and UN have stepped in to try and make a settlement through jaw jaw rather than war war. Let us also take a diplomatic step and stop using insults such as "insects" and "fake arabs"

    north sudanese, what do you mean by saying Bashir is a man? are you sure about that?. Bashir is not a man, if he is a man why did he run away from Panthou at least twice? Bashir has two wives now but has no children (his own bilogical children) so how come you tell us that Bashir is a man. S. Sudanese are not insects either. Tell us what is Bashir please

    Indeed, Mr Kharti

    UNSC visa vis AU, you cannot circumvent the former because it has all necessary tools to force you to comply. secondly, IGAD was the chief mediator during the CPA. All you need to do is come up with IGAD is the chief mediator. Third, if you were to succeed in Panthou, then you could insist on security. But you were defeated and accused US, Israel and Uganda when they did not
