Egyptian troops are unwelcome in Darfur - SLM


Sudan Liberation Movement/Army

Statement from the military spokesman of

May 1, 2007 — It has came to our attention that Sudan and Egypt Governments have signed an agreement, where by Egyptian troops will be send to Darfur, we in the Sudan Liberation Liberation Movement/Army and with due respect to the Egyptian Government would like however, to state the following:-

1. We strongly warn Sudan Government to stop playing politics, these Egyptian troops where have they all been this time while our people are dieing? And why in this specific time? And why from Egypt? Its Sudan Government’s policy of "drinking wine and preaching water" that let to these desperate states of affairs in Darfur.

2. We in the Sudan Liberation Movement/Army are full a ware of the bilateral agreement between Salah Gush, the head of Sudan Government’s security and Omar Suleiman the head of Egyption Intelligence , to change the scenario of spelling innocence blood in Darfur , and we strongly condemn and reject this. Unethical and untimely move.

3. It’s beats logic for the Egyption Government to think of sending troops to Darfur, while the Islamist still posing a great threat to the regime of President Mubarak and it will be good if these troops are kept to stabilize the internal situation in Egypt.

4. The Sudan Liberation Movement/Army highly welcome UN forces from western and neutral countries to protect civilian and urge the International community to show sense of and urgency in sending the troops " more delay more death"

    First the SLM should learn how to spell Egyptian. It ends with ian and not ion!

    I strongly believe that the Sudanese and Egyptian people are one. We drink the same water and share a lot of history. It’s sad what is going on!

      Let Ahmed Kamel know that Egypt is only inerested in the Nile water but not the security of the Sudanese people.Egypt will have reacted before all what which occured in Darfur,not in the late stages.As a main player in the Arab league and African/Arab Nation,Egypt will have been very effective in the solution of the Darfur issue without favouring each side.
