May 5, 2012 (KHARTOUM) – A number of opposition parties in Sudan called on the government to accept the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolution issued this week ordering Khartoum and Juba to resume negotiations on post-independence issues including oil, Abyei, border demarcation and citizenship and reaching agreements within a specified timeframe

Both countries were threatened with sanctions if they failed to comply with the resolution which is based on an African Union roadmap.

Sudanese officials have given contradictory statements regarding whether they will comply with the resolution. Yesterday, Sudanese foreign minister Ali Karti criticized those calling on the government to reject it.

The UNSC resolution was in response to the worst military clashes that erupted last month between Khartoum and Juba since they parted ways in July 2011. South Sudan briefly seized oil-rich Heglig which supplied half of Sudan’s oil production

The National Consensus Forces (NCF) opposition umbrella stated that peace is not attained except through peace and dialogue on the negotiating table and called for looking into humanitarian issues and delivering aid to affected population in conflict zones.

Sideeg Yusuf, a leading figure in the Sudanese Communist Party (SCP), said that war leads to nothing but destruction and losses noting that the UNSC resolution caused divisions within the government and called for immediate implementation of the council’s decision.

In a related issue, the Sudanese former Prime Minister and leader of the National Umma Party (NUP) al-Sadiq al-Mahdi said that the government must sit down for talks with the leaders of the Sudan People Liberation Movement North (SPLM-N) fighting the government in the border states of the Blue Nile and South Kordofan.

He described SPLM-N leaders Yasser Arman, Abdel-Aziz al-Hilu and Malik Agar as the "wisest people" urging Khartoum to find a way to deal with them. The Sudanese government labeled those leaders as fugitives and asked the Interpol to issue Red Notices for them.

Al-Mahdi said that opposition carried arms as a reaction to government choices of subordination or rebellion.

The ex-PM criticized president Omer Hassan al-Bashir for his fiery speeches describing South Sudan ruling party as "insects" suggesting that it contains racist connotation.

He further added that the government has no means to change the Juba regime like the president vowed to calling it "suicidal" and "impossible".

Al-Mahdi statements mark a stark departure from his positions in the past in which he criticized the rebel alliance known as Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF) for carrying arms against the central government.

            Which international law r u following? Higlieg is internationally accepted to be a part of Sudan. Where is your proof of 6000 n 120 vehicles? Why did u only retreat after Bashir said you will hear good news soon? Why did SPLA say they will withdraw under certain conditions, then say 3 days and then withdraw in few hours?

            The answer to all the questions is one word .. INSECTS !!

              North Sudan’s president thinks it is ok to act like a fool in the media calling people "insects". Clearly, This Omer idiot is delusional, he has lost his mind (if he even has one). One thing is for sure, North Sudan is reacting to the realization of distruction, North can’t do anything without stealing. North Sudan is desprate and worn out trying to kill, but guess what? SOUTH SUDAN WILL PREVAIL!!

              A man does not live by insult. I don’t think continue calling South Sudanese will make them an insect, but make you look like a fool that run out of inferable ideas. Does it offend me to call us insects? No, because I know criminals run their mouths. The fact you still calling the most wanted criminal a president indicate that something is wholly wrong with North Sudan and entirely Arabs

              (Africa confidential) When President Omer Hassan Ahmed el Beshir told the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM), ’Either we end up in Juba and take everything or you end up in Khartoum and take everything,’ he was acknowledging that the stakes could hardly be higher.

                What he didn’t say, in his 19 April speech at the National Congress Party headquarters, was that the Southern armed forces have proved a match for those of the ruling NCP. The 10 April takeover of Heglig by the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) - and withdrawal under international pressure - were a significant show of power.

                  On paper, the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) are far more powerful than the SPLA - in materiel, training and, most obviously, airpower. Yet several Western military sources told us they thought the military balance fairly even on the ground. Tactically, the SPLA should have stayed in Heglig, said one. Militarily, it certainly could have done. NCP protestations seemed aimed at disguising the extent of th

                    Militarily, it certainly could have done. NCP protestations seemed aimed at disguising the extent of the SAF defeat. The SPLA Spokesperson, Colonel Philip Aguer Panyang, said the SPLA had killed some 500 SAF men, in the town Southerners call Pan Thou. Other sources say around 3,500 troops died, of about 6,000.

          We are technically at war with homosexuals and pedophiles, worshipers of nothing but Satan called Allah. Allah is a name for Greek goddess and pedophile god who used to go around looking for young children to abuse. The present generations of Sudanese in the north are nothing short of majority of children conceived out of wedlock and pedophile affairs and above all, sons....
