Sudan’s ruling party welcomes Bashir-Kiir summit


December 24, 2012 (KHARTOUM) —The ruling National Congress Party (NCP) welcomed the organization of a summit between the Sudanese president Omer Al-Bashir and his South Sudanese counterpart Salva Kiir before the African Union summit next month.

Negotiating delegations from both countries agreed last week in Addis Ababa to meet after Christmas and New Year holidays as the two parties agreed partially on the implementation of security deals. The next January meetings, of the joint political security committee, will focus on the rebels’ issue.

Initially the mediation was planning to organise a meeting between the two presidents on the margins of the African Union annual meeting to discuss to discuss besides the rebels’ issue, Abyei and the disputed areas.

NCP spokesperson, Badr al-Deen Ibrahim, said his party welcomes a presidential meeting between Bashir and Kiir before the African Union "if it is in the interest of the implementation of the agreements signed between the two countries".

Speaking after a meeting of the party’s political sector, Ibrahim said that Khartoum supports and welcomes any step leading towards the enforcement of Cooperation Agreement and paves the way for the establishment of good-neighborly relationship.

He expressed hope that the two parties would demonstrate the necessary political will to enforce what has been agreed, and reiterated Sudan’s commitment to what was signed in Addis Ababa.

The official was reacting to statements by Luka Biong, member of South Sudan negotiating team, to Khartoum based Al-Sahafa daily newspaper where he said that a South Sudanese delegation will arrive to Khartoum to discuss the presidential summit.

Ibrahim denied that Sudanese government has blocked the implementation of the agreements inked on 27 September. He further called on the mediation and the international community to exert the necessary pressure on any of the parties they consider obstructing its implementation.

Khartoum which has long accused Juba of supporting rebel groups particularly the SPLM-N, refuses to allow the exportation of South Sudanese oil through its pipeline and the Red Sea ports asking it to disengage with the Sudanese insurgents

In addition, it says Juba did not yet withdraw its troops from the disputed areas. The South Sudanese army due to the rainy session was not able to redeploy its troops and their heavy military materials from these areas.

    It’s just a matter of time till Mr. Kiir disarms SPLA-N and kicks their asses out of the south because the guy is left with no choice otherwise it would be like committing a suicide as his country is running out of money, economy is about to collapse, fighting, cattle raiding, killing journalist and now shooting civilians in Wau and killing Fartit people!

      Mr. Kiir is a liar, actually a big liar and no one trusts him except moron people, he hates disarming SPLA-N not because he loves them but because he hates Arab/Jalaba and won’t hesitate for a moment to support devil himself if that choice would destroy Sudan!
      Mr. Kiir and his thugs have no vision or clear road map at all on what to do next?

        2. Tease and harass Arab/Jalaba in the north
        3. Loot oil money
        4. Kill journalists and terrorize them
        5. Kill Fartit and other minority ethnic group
        6. Keep people busy and encourage them fighting over cows
        Mr. Kiir and his thugs have no vision at all and are useless people!

        SPLA-JIU Help to slash out JEM in May 2008 when they enter into Khartuom, SPLA-JIU did miracle by reinforce Khartuom bari bridge and dislodge JEM fighters from taking Khartuom because we were believing of power change in Khartuom through Dialogue and Election. NCP is a fake party killing Sudanese, South SUdan got her own affairs not disarming SPLA-N fighters, they are independant rebels in Sudan.

      Hi Jalaby, that is how you think and those are your words.
      If South Sudan has that capacity to disarm about 15,000 SPLA North rebels, then South Sudan should rather disarm SAF and the entire North Sudan instead of rebels.

    jalaby or Jalabia.
    Your comment is just a reverse to what happening to NCP who has nowhere to steal money. Right now RSS has decided to open some refineries in states of producing oil. Yes SS may except the collapsing of its economics compare to your criminal and most corrupted government of Sudan who has been there independently for 56 years depending on South Sudanese.
