July 22, 2012 (KHARTOUM) - Sudan’s ruling National Congress Party (NCP) said that the South Sudanese government is not serious about reaching an agreement over their unresolved issues, accusing Juba and some members of the international community of concocting new sanctions on the country.

Talks between Sudan and South Sudan witnessed a setback on Friday after Juba accused Sudan of carrying out new aerial bombardments in Northern Bahr el-Gahzal State. The accusation was followed by its decision to stop the direct talks with Khartoum in Ethiopia.

Earlier this month on 7 July, the two countries agreed to hold direct talks in a transparent manner and to respect each other’s sovereignty. The strategic approach also aimed to speed the comprehensive talks as the deadline fixed by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) is looming.

Mohamed Mandour, deputy chairman of NCP in Khartoum State, said that South Sudanese negotiators count on the support of some members of the international community and pressure groups that influence Western governments "to the extent that makes them unwilling to solve disputed issues through the African Union brokered talks".

Mandour added that the South Sudanese negotiators "are obstructing" the talks hoping that by the deadline of 2 August, the UNSC will impose economic sanctions on Khartoum despite its repeated commitment to continue talks in order to reach a peaceful agreement, as he said.

"Obviously, from these practices there is a foreign agenda determining the conduct of the South Sudanese delegation and the path of negotiations in general", he went on to add.

Sudan, which sticks to the security first approach, rejects a map proposed by the mediation to establish a buffer zone between the two countries aiming to stop cross border attacks by rebels. This position hampered any progress in the talks as the mediation, long time accused by Juba of favouring Khartoum, refuses to change its plan.

In accordance with the UNSC resolution 2046, by 2 August the mediation team has to file its conclusions on the disputed issues. After which the Council can impose economic sanctions on the two parties for violating the deadline.

Mandour said that Sudan, which is already subjected to US economic sanctions, is ready for all possibilities adding that the sanctions will increase Sudan’s strength.

After the independence of South Sudan, Khartoum is experiencing a severe economic crisis due to the loss of the majority of the country’s oil revenue. However, the government resisted the "Arab Spring" and the popular movements that brought down several regime in the region.

Analysts in Sudan are divided over the impact of the dispute with the South Sudan and the fight against the rebel groups in South Kordofan, Blue Nile and Darfur.

Some say this situation weakened the regime but others say it allowed the government to play the patriotic card and to easily intimidate the opposition and severely suppress anti-austerity protests organised by youth groups and students.

    There will be no solution unless South Sudan government must prepare for the war since they don’t want the pending issues to be solve peacefully instead. President Kiir must not rely on the International community alone.

      Peopel of Abyei must not hurry to return to their home now.
      It is stil too early to do so.
      SPLA must be prepared for a long war with khartoum.
      From 2005 up to now ,khartoum never shown seriousness of talks. By the way why people of Abyei have to vote for their lives? These people belong to south sudan,and why should they have to vote? To be slaves or to be arabs? Our war with arabs is not over!

      Gandour or Ant’s hill,
      South Sudan is foreign. It is not Sudanese any longer. Which ever agenda that persue is not Sudanese, it is its own. And do not expect us to be like Chad or Libya after the death of Gadafi. Step again on the tiger’s tail. Not only a bite, but a crush that will bring a new regime on power in Sudan.

          BREKING NEWS:

          Kiir says its no longer appropriate to call his army SPLA and will change the name soon. Now we have been saying this for a long time. He is a bit slow but he finally gets it.

    Certainly hope no agreement would be reached ,any agreement will strengthen the corrupt goverment in the north at the expence of its own citizens. Any life line to the drawning heynas(Bashir and co) would only prolong the suffering of their people.

    Why are these greedy Northern Sudanese government seem to be serious about oil negotiation not borders disputes? The Oil is belong to the Sudan and we cannot be force to signed unconditional agreement in Addis Abba. Our corrupt chief negotiated (Pagan Amum) seem to play some little gambling in Ethiopia so that they can secure their looted Billions of dollar again. Death to Pagan and Gogrial mafia.
