May 27, 2012 (JUBA) - The United Nations Special Envoy for Sudan and South Sudan, Haile Menkarios, has downplayed Khartoum’s claims over ownership of Heglig (Panthou) based on the court’s ruling in The Hague in 2009 on Abyei.

The UN envoy met on Thursday in the Council of Ministers hall with the South Sudanese Vice President, Riek Machar and the UN Secretary General’s special representative to South Sudan, Hilde Johnson. Also present were a number of ministers and United Nations officials.

Menkarios who held talks with the leadership of the new country on the resumption of peace talks in Addis Ababa on 29 May told the meeting The Hague’s ruling had never stated that Heglig (Panthou) was part of North Sudan.

The Eritrean diplomat further explained that the court only determined only the boundaries of the territory of Abyei area and not the borders between South Sudan and Sudan. He said the court simply stated that Heglig did not fall within the territory of Abyei.

He urged the two countries to resume the negotiations and find solutions to the outstanding post-independence issues.

The statements of the envoy seemed to have tallied with the arguments of the South Sudan government which dismissed Khartoum’s claims of Heglig based on the ruling of the court.

Officials in South Sudan argue that Heglig, which is locally known as Panthou in Dinka language, has always historically been part of the present Unity State or Western Nuer district during the British colonial era.

Leaders of the Sudanese Misseriya pastoral tribe, who claim the ownership of Abyei say the oil producing area is part of their territory in South Kordofan.

However, officials of South Sudan accused the successive Khartoum governments of attempting to annex Heglig to North Sudan following the discovery of oil resources in the area in late 1970s.

The latest attempt, according to the Vice President, Riek Machar, was when the President Omer Al Bashir’s assistant, Nafie Ali Nafie, instructed the former governor of Unity state, Joseph Nguen Minytuil, not to include Heglig in the map of Unity state in 2004, which Minytuil resisted.

Officials say they have the copy of the document which was communicated to the former governor by Nafie Ali Nafie.

Machar said Heglig continued to be administered under the jurisdiction of Unity state’s Pariang County until 2009 when North Sudan unilaterally misinterpreted the ruling and occupied the area.

Even during the population census of 2008, he said, Heglig’s population was officially counted to the population of Unity state.

These, he said, included a number of many other resource endowed areas including Karsana in Unity state in addition to others in Upper Nile, Northern and Western Bahr el Ghazal States.

"We did not want to immediately confront Khartoum over its occupation of our territories because we wanted the referendum [on self-determination] to take place," Machar said.

The two countries are going for the renewed negotiations in Addis Ababa on Tuesday with Sudan’s President Omer Hassan el Bashir demanding that the issue of security including cutting any support to insurgency groups of each country by the other should feature first in the talks.

Machar, however, said addressing the security issues should also mean resolving the long awaited border demarcation between the two countries and the fate of Abyei, which are also needed to achieve long term security.

        Unfortunately Khartoum has the bad culture of lying to its people and the world. Of course the court never gave them Panthou.

        And without border demarcation and Abyei, no security settlement will come to fruition.

          You see how Sudan is now dumbfounded, Sudan can win this argument when they are the only one at the UN claiming Panthou is their territory but if there one person on the other side from South Sudan to counter their argument with facts, Sudan will just end up looking like an idiot the way it just happened! >>>>>>>

            This is exactly what Sudan did during panthou takeover by SPLA back in April; they were there alone at the UN, telling the UN all the lies and the UN believed them without asking the Southerners if it’s true Panthou was their territory.

              Now if the UN and AU wanted this border issue be solved as soon as possible and avoid confrontation between SPLA and SAF, then the oil operation at Panthou is needed to be shutdown immediately otherwise the SPLA will do it alone, just in the way they did it in Unity and Upper Nile State!

              It’s illegal for Sudan to operate in Panthou/Heglig without South Sudan consent or awareness!

                It is khartoum always to blame for all the ill’s taking place in Sudan.Border issue would have been done long time ago six months into the CPA,but khartoum with its hungry and selfish atitude has been dragging its feet to solve all the problems pertaining to the border specifically a concern for insecurity.

                Demarcate the border and see where the issue of insecurity will come from simple logic.

      Good voice from UN!!

      According to the Hague Court, Panthau (Heglig) does not fall within the Abyie boundaries, and this does not means the rest of the towns(Juba,Bentiu,Malakal,etc) in the Sudan by then belongs to the north. NCP statement that Panthua(Heglig)belongs to the North Sudan because it is outside the Abyie boundaries is no logic. It is for consumption by stupid north Sudanese .

    The CPA was signed with reference to the 1/1/1956 borders. Higlieg, Abeyi and all other land claimed by GOS lie within these borders. If SPLA does not recognize these borders then it shouldnt have signed the CPA.

        Ban Ki-moon, the UN secretary-general, has called the south’s seizure of Heglig an "illegal act" and urged the two nations to negotiate to avoid all-out war.

      I agree, Khartoum misunderstand what the ICC were very specifically focusing on Abyei only. Khartoum went out with wrong information thinking the ICC gave them Dinka land and it is not going to happen. Now the South Sudan have already announce official Map of South Sudan nation and Khartoum must not be allow to continue oil production in Panthou because it will be illegal for them to do so

        In July 2009, the international organization, Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) redefined the boundaries of Abyei, a county that lies between Southern Sudan and Northern Sudan. The decision placed the Heglig and Bamboo oilfields in the Northern Sudan district of South Kurdufan, but the decision did not specify oil sharing.

    Lies and deception are the modus operandi of the ruling NCP in SUdan. They have no shame in telling the whole world that "Higlig" (Panthou) had been handed to them by the PCA (2009 ruling on Abyei).

    The UN, AU, UE, etc. should take the Higlig conflict as a lesson and now be careful in dealing with Khartoum when it comes to dispute(s) between Sudan and RSS.

    Bravo Menkarios.

          Based on the decision, the Government of Sudan announced they would not share any oil revenue with the Government of South Sudan, as the (PCA) established that Heglig was part of the North.

            "The numbers of killed from SPLM are 1,200," Sudan’s military commander Kamal Marouf told thousands of troops in the area, from which Southern forces said they had withdrawn on the weekend.

              The toll is impossible to verify, but an AFP correspondent who accompanied Marouf said the putrid bodies of dead South Sudanese soldiers lay beneath trees scattered among the oil fields.

              He said the number of bodies was so large they were "uncountable."

    Now what will JALABA say.It is clearly stated that South Sudan border was not addressed at Hague,quote’The Eritrean diplomat further explained that the court only determined only the boundaries of the territory of Abyei area and not the borders between South Sudan and Sudan. He said the court simply stated that Heglig did not fall within the territory of Abyei.

            Hague court ruling
            A ruling by the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague in 2009 appears to put Heglig in the Sudan state of Southern Kordofan, which the South now disputes.

            MESSERIA has roots in all these countries and regions of SUDAN.

              CHAD was "FRENCH SUDAN" and SUDAN was "BRITISH SUDAN".

              NO borders before but the devil colonizationist made them.

    It’s true,even since,as the Southern Sudanese,Panthous was our land and we hope,that international justice will put Panthous under Unity State adminstration system,because Panthous in Dinka language means,the tree with sharpen thorns as well as Abyei is the largest tree with productive shading. Dinka is not divided to the reginals.They are in Southern Sudan as well as Nuer.We don’t know mersireya.
