Press Release

South Sudan started the withdrawal of its troops for the establishment of a demilitarized border zone between South Sudan and Sudan

In compliance with African Union Peace and Security Council Communique’s (24 April and 24 October 2012), United Nations Security Council Resolution 2046 (2 May 2012) and the Agreement on Security Arrangement between the Republic of Sudan and the Republic of South Sudan (27 September 2012), and in line with the implementation plan approved by the two Joint Political and Security Mechanism (JPSM) co-chairs (19 December 2012), the Government of South Sudan has completed the withdrawal of all its troops south of the centre line on the administrative and security map presented to the Parties by the AUHIP in November 2011 for the establishment of the Safe Demilitarized Border Zone (SDBZ). This withdrawal was completed within the timeframe (D-day (19 Dec 2012) + 28 days) that has been agreed by the Parties. This is the first step in the separation of forces and the full operationalization of the SDBZ (10km withdrawal from the centreline).

At the current meeting of the JPSM, convened by the AUHIP from 14-15 January 2013 in Addis Ababa, the Government of South Sudan has also fully accepted the full demilitarization of the “14 mile area” – the land of the Malual Dinka as per the 1924 Wheatley-Munro Agreement. This will be completed by D-day + 47 days.

The Acting Chief Negotiator, Minister John Luk Jok noted: “By withdrawing its forces south of the centreline of the temporary administrative and security map of the AUHIP and agreeing to the full demilitarization of the SDBZ and the 14 miles area, the Government of South Sudan is clearly demonstrating its full compliance with the signed security agreements and full commitment to their implementation. Indeed, RSS is fully committed to the unconditional and timely implementation of all agreements it has signed with the Government of Sudan. The GoRSS expects the Government of Sudan to similarly implement fully and unconditionally the security agreements and all other agreements embodied in the Cooperation Agreement of 27 September 2012. These agreements lay the foundations for mutual viability of both our nations and enduring peace between our peoples.”

The South Sudan Minister of Defence, John Kong Nyuon remarked: “In addition to the withdrawal of RSS troops south of the centreline we have also started the redeployment of our forces from the Safe Demilitarized Border Zone (10km withdrawal from the centreline), which will be completed by the deadline of 4 February 2013.”

    I’m Al Bashir president of Northern Sudan. I now get a chance to settle my Misseriya who do not have right in Abyei. I can not allow my enemy to run their oil through my land unless they let me settle Misseriya in their land.
    I’m Al Bashir I have no reason of settling Abyei and other disputing areas if S. Sudan keep accepting my demands because they think thatI would open oil but no forever.

    Along with the whole thing which seems to be building throughout this particular subject material, a significant percentage of opinions happen to be fairly exciting. On the other hand, I beg your pardon, because I can not subscribe to your whole theory, all be it stimulating none the less.

    I’ve learned some new things as a result of your blog site. One other thing I’d really like to say is the fact newer pc os’s tend to allow additional memory to get used, but they in addition demand more memory simply to run. If one’s computer is unable to handle a lot more memory along with the newest computer software requires that memory space increase, it could be the time to buy a new Laptop
