Khartoum rejects South Sudan’s criticism over Abyei meeting


November 27, 2012 (KHARTOUM) - A Sudanese official said his government is conducting consultations on its nominees for Abyei interim institutions, refuting South Sudanese criticism over the delay in the formation of these regional bodies.

On 20 June 2011 Khartoum and Juba agreed to establish a new administration in Abyei where the head of the executive will be nominated by Juba as Khartoum will select the head of legislative council.

The parties failed to agree Abyei administration as Juba asked to appoint a Ngok Dinka as speaker, a demand that Khartoum declined.

However, President Salva Kiir recently agreed to proceed with the implementation of the deal, following a decision taken by the African Union Peace and Security Council on 24 October providing to hold a referendum in October 2013 and urged Juba to go ahead with the formation of the local administration.

Sudan’s top negotiator for Addis talks with the South Sudanese government Idris Mohamed Abdel Gadir issued a statement on Tuesday saying that consultations are still underway to complete the government’s list of candidates for all the functions of Abyei institutions.

He further regretted a statement released by the co-chair of Abyei steering committee, Luka Biong, saying Juba was the cause of the delay during all the past period because of their refusal to accept that a Misseriya be appointed at the head of legislative council.

Luka Biong released a statement on 21 November where he blamed Sudan for the postponement of the meeting which was supposed to take major decisions to fully implement the resolution of the African Union Peace and Security Council (AUPSC) as per its 24 October communiqué.

Khartoum is hostile to the African Union decision to hold the referendum on Abyei future without the participation of the Misseriya nomads and rejected it.

The African Union gave the parties six weeks to strike a deal over the referendum organization, but seemingly none of the two sides is willing to make any concession.

On Tuesday, a delegation of Misseriya traditional leaders, headed by Al-Khair Al-Fahim co chair of Abyei steering committee, met in Khartoum with the Russain ambassador to Sudan to discuss a role his country can play at the level of the UN Security Council to counter any American move aiming to pass a resolution supporting the organisation of a referendum without their participation.

The UN Security Council is scheduled on Wednesday to hold a consultations the situation between Sudan and South Sudan.

The meeting which is mainly dedicated to discuss the UNMISS may handle the recent accusations of bombing the South Sudanese territory and the implementation of the 27 September deal as well as the situation in Abyei.

    Because of your backwarded government of Arab liars, there is no progresse to be made at any times. But you must keep in minds that the Ngok Dinka Land will never be shared with those animals called Misseriya. One day and one time you will be sorry for your stupidity decions against Land owners, no matter how long it take for us to fight those Homo-Muslims.

        Khartoum is demonstrating its stupidity to the whole world by using Messeriya to beg the Russian Ambassador so that they can participate in the referendum of October, 2013. Let a Messeriya leader become First Vice President/President of Sudan to help beg Russia or UNSC for dreamed participation in the referendum.

          Whether Juba nominates head of executive or legislative council, the outcome of the referendum is crystal clear; Abyei will roll back to its original place in South Sudan with all its resources where it belongs historically, linguistically and culturally. Resource-stricken Khartoum doesn’t have to be reminded every now and then.

            We only need to keep reminding Khartoum about Panthou (not the Arabized name-Heglig) that it belongs to South Sudan and we will take it back. Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) just pitied Khartoum temporarily to at least have a source of getting hard currency for its political survival.

              And now Khartoum starts yelling to the local and international media that it will be pumping from 107 bpd this year to 180 bpd next year which is impossible and unbelievable. Khartoum needs mathematical orientation conducted by IMF,World Bank or IEA. What is annual upsurge since 1996?

    It’s a big surprise to me personally for the person like Dr. Luka Boing Deng to say this. he is accusing the government in Juba, by saying that Juba was the one causing the delay of formation of Abyei Administration by refusing to accept the Misseriya to be appointed for the post of head of Abyei Legislative council. I understand that Comrade Luka is the co- chair for Abyei steering committee.

      Never listens to those animals, you know them very well as they usually lies to themselves and even to their deadly-god called Mahammed. I believed Luka Boing is a distance man and responsible person who can be trusted more than any traitor in Abyei. Don’t let your self to be drive by such stupid message, just catch some breath and wait for clarification. Thanks
