US can no longer be trusted, Sudan FM says


January 8, 2012 (KHARTOUM) – The Sudanese foreign minister Ali Karti on Sunday reacted angrily to the announcement by the United States that it has now added South Sudan to the list of countries which can receive weapons from it.

South Sudan officially became an independent state last July and Washington has taken steps since to exempt it from most of the sanctions imposed on its northern neighbor.

The U.S. president Barack Obama in his memorandum issued this week said that “the furnishing of defense articles and defense services to the Republic of South Sudan will strengthen the security of the United States and promote world peace”.

But Karti described the US decision as one aspect of imbalance by Washington in dealing with other countries adding that as a result “it is no longer in a place of trust”.

He claimed that the US has violated its own laws several times and provided support to South Sudan even before it seceded from the north.

The Sudanese top diplomat said that the US can do as it please but stressed that Khartoum will no longer await support from it.

Relations between Khartoum and Juba deteriorated dramatically since the country’s breakup amid accusations by the latter that the Sudanese army has launched aerial attacks inside its borders including one which targeted a refugee camp last year.

      Stop crying, the sooner you & your mafia colleagues disappear the sooner all of Sudan can benefit from all its international relations.

      NCP is the reason why this country is in the mess its in and not the US or Israel as you would like most Sudanese to think. Luckily most Sudanese are slowly but surely waking up to this fact.

    I think this reaction is entirely legitimate, Washington’s decision is more than questionable.

    Your govt is the one shouldn’t be trust any more because your govt gave recognition to South Sudan as the country and at the same time, the one bomb it on face of the world. What kind of stupid idea is that?

    Dear Ali Karti,

    How comes that the gov, of Sudan trusted U.S gov. and yet Sudan gov. doesn’t trusts itself in the first place? Don’t begin your words with panic comments before reality operation begins in Khartoum. Sudan gov. egotism in Khartoum will bury everyone of you sooner rather than later in humiliating way like Lybia leader M. Ghafi.
    Bashir will soon be on strret like Ghafi.

    Before anything, let us pray that the ongoing war between our people comes to an end, INSHALLAH.
    Sudanese and southern Sudanese want to go forward in life and see their country flourish with education, health, protection and a good life. This is what every human deserves.

    The only problem I believe taking this not so much to ask for simple dream is the corrupt government of Bashir and the ever since Sudan got its independence self-war. Our country is so rich of different types resources; and when we finally have peace Inshallah, I hope we smartly and ungreedily use them carefully and wisely.
