Khartoum urges South Sudan’s Kiir to implement security deal as he accuses it of scapegoating


November 20, 2012 (KHARTOUM) – Sudan’s ruling National Congress Party (NCP) has demanded that South South’s President Salva Kiir Mayardit demonstrates enough seriousness in implementing a security deal between the two countries as the latter accused Khartoum of using Juba as an excuse for its defeats in fighting Sudanese rebels.

NCP official spokesperson, Badr Al-Din Ahmad Ibrahim, reiterated Khartoum’s position that the border security deal must be implemented first saying it is the cornerstone for implementing all other agreements signed in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa on 27 September, including the one on resuming South Sudan oil exports via Sudan.

Ibrahim said that the oil deal leads to economic interests but will not lead to stability. He further accused South Sudan of continuing to support Sudanese rebel groups, mainly the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement North (SPLM-N).

Talks between the two countries on how to implement the border security deal, which provides for the establishment of a buffer demilitarized zone along the 1800-km common border, collapsed last week over demands by Khartoum that Juba severs its alleged ties to the SPLM-N which has been fighting the Sudanese government in the country’s border regions of South Kordofan and Blue Nile since last year.

South Sudan president Salva Kiir Mayardit confirmed on Tuesday that his country has delayed preparations to resume oil exports via Sudan after Khartoum made new demands in security talks.

"We were supposed to resume oil production on November 15, five days ago. Suddenly Khartoum people changed their minds, saying we must denounce the Nuba Mountains and Blue Nile," Kiir said in an address to supporters and reporters in Melut town in the oil-producing Upper Nile state, as reported by Reuters.

"The people (of Khartoum) are looking for an excuse for their defeat in Nuba Mountains and Blue Nile," Kiir said.

The NCP spokesperson said that Kiir must show enough seriousness in implementing the deal by issuing instructions to expel armed groups and stop supporting the “northern sector” in reference to the SPLM-N.

He added that Kiir must order the field commanders of South Sudan’s, known as the SPLA, to sever ties with their former comrades-in-arms, and communicate to them that the deal is signed by South Sudan as a country not as a group.

“The ball is now in the South [Sudan] court. If [Juba] wanted to implement the deals seriously, Sudan will be ready [to do the same].”

Plans to establish a buffer zone have been hampered by recent escalation of fighting between the government and the SPLM-N, which controls parts of the borders.

    Sudan (11/18/2012 number 2488) that 12 of the finest talent medical submitted their resignations. And was considered by the Ministry of Health in Khartoum that the migration of medical staff out of the country a disaster, and ministry attributed it to the economic crisis in the country!
    They need money very badly, South Sudan needs to watch that

            For your information if you don’t know it the referendum which you have now regretted having it conducted by the people of South Sudan and blamed it on Bashir and Taha was out of the control of the two bigots. It was predestined to happen any way. So stop crying over the spilled milk.

                Well, if we continue to support Machar & Matip group then the Dinka-Nuer war could probably continue until now with no clear winner!
                The south is very diversified and full of contradictions and as Joseph Lagu said it long time ago "We as southerners have nothing in common that relate us other than the black color"

How many of you would not even shoot a gun because theya are scared? How many ate rats and dogs while they were besieged? You talk of Panthou without quoting independent sources.

                      You must have been sleeping. Machar and SPLM outwitted your two leaders. He lulled them to sleep and woke up only when referendum’s result was out. Then they blessed it! Your support to Machar and Matip was another foolishness of Bashir and Taha. My friend they are alive today because they accepted self determination and independence. I salute them for seeing the inevitable!!!!

            Bashir’ uncle was celebrating when South secede hopping that Sudan will finally be peaceful but they were wrong given the fact that they forgot that they strengthen us to be in their nerves forever. Now this what we called payback in English. We’ll support SPLM-North till they get what they want. SPLM will Rule Sudan someday with remote control in Juba whether fake Arabs want it or not is a must.

    Kiir looks to be smiling with any terrorist systems within his leadershipness.He is keeping thousands South Sudanese innocent killers in Juba prison without finishments being taken.Disarment in Jonglei implicated thousands of innocent torturings & rapings.
    I don,t believe Kiir is a serious leader which can handle the terrorist system of Al bashir.

    Now South Sudan is clean in the eyes of international community.Economic gains that Sudan refuses are beneficial to both countries.Disarming more than a half million rebels is not a simple job.If Sudan fails to disarm its rebels how come that South Sudan will be able to do so.Its impossible,impossible,impossible.Yau Yau is not disarm with only less than 5000 rebels.Haaaaa alternative pipes.

    North Sudan Government should not talk about joint Security force cooperation with South Sudan Government again they are bombing South Sudanese people, so them solve their case with SPLA-North without South Sudan Government help. South Sudan need to prepare for any war coming from North Sudan.
