Post-referendum negotiations continue in Juba on Monday


December 12, 2010 (JUBA) - The meeting between members from the south’s ruling SPLM and their northern counterparts the NCP on post-referendum issues will reconvene on Monday, according to communiqué from the African Union High Level Implementation Panel on Sudan (AUHIP).

Currently under the mediation of the AUHIP, the meeting was reportedly adjourned on December 08, the lead panel composed of members from both parties requested for more time to deliberate on the key issues.

The questions of citizenship, national debt, security arrangements, resources (oil and water), border demarcation and international treaties, among other legal treaties currently constitute the main issues under negotiation by the two parties’ signatory to the 2005 peace accord, which gave the south the right to secede.

Thabo Mbeki, the former South African President and current chair of the AUHIP has, according to the December 11 communiqué, urged the two parties to apply themselves diligently during these negotiations, describing it as “critical” for addressing the future of the people of Sudan.

The AUHIP, however, remains optimistic that the two parties will reach a compromise on these post-referendum issues under discussion and that the panel will work closely with the parties, regardless of the outcome of South Sudan’s referendum.

South Sudan is due to hold it historic referendum on self-determination on January 09, 2011. The vote is key part of the 2005 CPA, which ended over two-decades of a bloody civil war fought between north and south.

    post.referendum negotiation in Juba do not correspond with CPA because ,it said in CPA that South Sudan and Abyei referendum will be last thing to be implemented and after it ,then two partners can agree on the post referendum
    negotiating from Juba while our people are suffering from bombing by Sudan armies forces .
    which kind of agree are they doing from Juba.
    Mbeki is pretending to negotiate the peace while he is hearing of bombing from both 2 states of North Bhar El-Ghazal and western bhar el-Ghazal not event concerned about it .

    bor town the beginning of liberation
