In press statements Osman insisted that Sudan has paid its share in the UN regular budget for 2012 "in full" adding that as of December 31 his country remains up to date.

He added that Sudan’s finance ministry will "immediately" send its 2013 dues "in accordance criteria laid down in the general budget".

A UN General Secretariat report states that Sudan has been assessed to pay 0.010% of the UN regular budget in 2012 which amounts to $236,317.

The Sudanese diplomat did not provide details on when the 2012 dues were actually disbursed.

The "UN honour roll" published at the UN Committee On Contributions website as of December 31 does not list Sudan as one of the countries that has paid its fees in full by year end.

Sudan is among fifty UN member states that have not paid into the 2012 budget which also includes countries such as Comoros Islands, Jamaica, Lebanon, Mali, Venezuela and the United States.

South Sudan, which became independent in July 2011 has yet to be assessed by the budget committee which met in June 2011 to determine the 2012 contributions.

According to the UN committee on contributions, the UN expenses are split among members "broadly according to capacity to pay".

Under Article 19 of the UN charter "a member State in arrears in the payment of its dues in an amount that equals or exceeds the contributions due for two preceding years can lose its vote in the General Assembly".

    There is no doubt Sudan has mastered the art of denial to the fullest. I wonder whether this guys will one day accept anything. If you tell them there is a sun in the sky, they will surely deny.

    Why is the Sudanese currency called the Pound? Is it maybe because you need to bring a pound in weight in bills to buy some meat?
