June 6, 2012 (KHARTOUM) - Sudan said on Wednesday that the meeting of the Abyei committee which will start on Thursday should swiftly agree on the formation of Abyei Area Administration, stressing that Juba has no reason to freeze it.

Sudan and South Sudan signed the Temporary Arrangements for the Administration and Security of the Abyei Area (TAASAA) on 20 June 2011 to end a crisis that erupted between the two parties after the seizure of the contested area by Sudanese troops one month before.

The deal states that the Chief Administrator is nominated by the South Sudanese ruling party, while the Chairperson of The Abyei Area Council, the legislative organisation, will be nominated by the Sudanese government.

However the parties failed to implement these provisions. Khartoum accused Juba of refusing to give the chairmanship of the legislative organisation to the Sudanese government.

Al-Khair Al-Faheem, co-chair of the Abyei Joint Oversight Committee (AJOC), met today with President Omar Al-Bashir and First Vice President Ali Osman Taha before leaving for Addis Ababa where the Abyei committee will meet under the auspices of the African Union mediation.

Speaking to the press after his meeting with the Sudanese president, Al-Faleem told reporters that the meetings will discuss Juba’s refusal to appoint a Sudanese at the head of the area’s legislative organisation, contrary to the provisions of last year agreement.

He further stressed that Sudan adheres to the provisions of the TAASAA, denying any justification to delay the formation of Abyei Area Administration.

Besides the establishment of Abyei administration, Thursday’s meeting is expected to discuss the formation of the joint security force, the humanitarian situation and the return of civilians displaced since May 2011, and the demarcation of Abyei border.

Delegations headed by defence ministers of the political and security committee continue their meetings in Addis Ababa over the implementation of security agreements including Abyei.

Khartoum had refused during the past period to withdraw its troops from the disputed area saying the vacuum of the administration might create troubles in Abyei as the army was also administrating it. Al-Faheem stressed that Sudan has pulled out all its troops from Abyei.

Juba accuses Khartoum of maintaining troops there. But Sudan says that only a special force protecting the oil fields are still there. The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) last week reiterated that Sudan must move all its forces out of the disputed area including the oil fields.

But Sudan still refuses and alludes to the attack on Heglig, which was captured in April by South Sudan’s army with alleged participation of Sudanese rebels who are waging war against Khartoum in South Kordofan state.

The Abyei population has to conduct a referendum on whether they want to remain in Sudan or to join the newly independent South Sudan, but the both sides disagree on who can participate in this vote.

        Is this what the universities and training centers in SOUTH SUDAN are developing the peoples there with it?

          Dear, See Me

          I respect what you are saying and I think you are much concern about behaviours of the people of South Sudan parriculary in this forum while Jalaby, Sudani ana, Northern Sudanses and their alike copying their great "Luti" Omer Albashir words of insects in this forum. So, I do not know if you are aware of that? I hope you are from South Sudan. Thanks

        Abyei was transferred to North in 1905.

        SO IN 1956 IT WAS AND STILL IS IN NORTH SUDAN.

        Im sorry people The Court said Dinka Njk are residence yes, but they are Northerners until they vote to be with the South.

      We can only accept establishment of Abyei Administration by people of Dinka Ngok, as defined in the court of Arbitration, which gave Dinka Ngok as real inhabitant and owners of the definer Abyei territories!! No inclusion of any Messiriya in the administration, will be accepted by RSS!!

    Abyei is to be governed by South Sudan government as it is South Sudan territory not new administration what so ever otherwise you will experience SPLA venom.
    Running after resources will not give Sudan’s peace and this time round is different compared to 80’s.

        The problem with you Southerners is you deal with everything in emotions and hatred. Which will lead to your destruction.

        Abyei is owned by North Sudan. Get it in your head. Try and use your brains for once and emotions aside.

        You and everyone knows, Abyei was transferred to North in 1905. SO IN 1956 IT WAS AND STILL IS IN NORTH SUDAN.

        So cry all you want for your Dinka.

          Darkangel, it’s not about what Southerners don’t get. what you don’t get in your head is the name Abyei! The name Abyei, its meaning and the language in which the name comes from doesn’t get in your head.

        absolutely, there is nothing call formation of Abyei Area Administration. You already disregarded CPA requirements that gave each of both North and South Sudan to bring their representatives within Dinka Ngok People. It does’t worked because of your ignorances, lies, and denials. This chance is for UN and the world to jugde.

      Northern Sudnese
      Then you dont know what law is, leave alone international law. In law, possession of land does not necessarily mean ownership. Get that properly.You have created a false assumption that because no body challenged the british decision, that you land is northern sudanese. Remember, the courts held that ownership predetermined possession of Abyei. Therefore, it is south sudanese

    All I know is arabs immigrated with their own people back in 1600s..And they found us with our own people..There is nothing to argue here...Plus 1956 boarder is the aim..finish, we do not need to this belittle situation of having to go to every nation on earth to FIND SOLUTIONS TO THE PROBLEM...The fact that people have to always seek a third part is due to difficulty of arabs.

    Dear All,

    Abyei and it’s people, Ngok Dinka, belong to South Sudan.

    First things first!
    Referendum needed not to be disrupted, and no one in the South needed an all-out war at the time we needed something even more: the referendum!

    The time for Abyei may soon come. Down the line, we shall see who permanently will own Abyei. Yes, just that!

    Khartoum is dreaming, it will never happen, and south Sudan should not allow such claim. South Sudan should claim Khartoum as theirs — that would be fare. Oh, south Sudan should also claim Darfur, Blue Nile, and Kordufan as part of south Sudan. Bashir does not know went to quit while he is ahead. Bashir and Hussein are the world’s most wanted criminals dead or alive.
