January 25, 2013 (KHARTOUM) - US Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice has called for international support to end hostilities between the Sudanese army and rebels in South Kordofan and Blue Nile states.

“It is crucial that there is outspoken support in the region for a cessation of hostilities and international humanitarian access” to rebel-held areas in the Sudanese border states, Rice said in statements to AFP released on Friday.

The call comes before a meeting of the African Union Peace and Security Council (AUPSC) on 25 January to discuss unresolved issues between Sudan and South Sudan, as well as press for talks between Khartoum and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N).

She said the Sudanese government must negotiate unconditionally with the rebels to achieve “real security”.

Khartoum so far refuses to engage in talks with the rebel group, saying Juba must first disengage with SPLM-N fighters before talks can be considered. The two sides also failed to implement a humanitarian deal struck in August last year due to disagreements over how to manage food distribution and humanitarian access.

Rice stressed that the African Union (AU) and United Nations should be involved in achieving such a deal.

In accordance with the UN resolution 2046, the Sudanese government and SPLM-N have to negotiate a peaceful settlement on the Two Areas.

SPLM-N secretary general Yasir Arman says they are ready to sign a cessation of hostilities deal with the government, but asked Khartoum to first allow the access of humanitarian aid to the region.

The rebels say they control 40% of the border with South Sudan in the two states and point out that the buffer zone cannot be operationalised without such agreement.

UN agencies estimate that some 220,000 Sudanese refugees fled to Ethiopia and South Sudan since the eruption of hostilities in Blue Nile and South Kordofan in June 2011.

It is also estimated that over 700,000 people in the two Sudanese states are affected by the severe humanitarian situation.

    Strange that Rice is still in the UN...
    She was proved unworthy by the senate because she is a very biased person.
    She does not represent the US.
    Why let her represent US in the UN?
    Who is she working for?

      Mohamed, it’ s none of your business to discredit the United States representative to the UN while your government in Khartoum is broken and about to hit it’s end. Glad and cannot wait to witness most of you face the full court of justice and feel wrong and sinister to your crimes committed in the South, Sudan , Blue Nile , Nuba mountains and the people of Darfur. Your time has come and you run!

    I think the time of condemnation is over now, Nuba and Blue Nile people need action.
    International community must play it’s role, i know Sudan is frustrated and humiliated with defeat in Nuba Mountains ,hence they want to make South Sudan as an scapegoat.
    No way, go to hell.

    Dear Rice and H.Orgs,
    This people do undermine all humanitarian Orgs which are working on the ground. What you should do is to pressure President Omer Bashir and those with him in power or you should took Bashir as ICC charges are concerned.
    Thanks,

      No poor Wadbakad, we don’t have any problems at all; you’re the one who have issues. Remember, we cut-off your survivable off South Sudan oil and that made your life miserable. No billions of dollars that you usually earned over South Sudan oil. You can pretend to have no problem at all but it’s not helping you a little bit!

          For your information Peacock...the fighting in South Kordofan was initiated by the SPLA/N and not the Khartoum govt. So if you want to blame someone for killing of innocents blame the one who started the fire.
          Not the one who has been attacked and dragged into a war that they don’t want or need.

      Wadbakad or Wadpakana.
      South Sudan is for Southerners not for American. H.E.Rice is telling the truth about the SAF and NCP attrocities they had committed in Nubian Mountains.they World is so concern on their fate not South Sudanese.. US and others are funding the refugees in Darfurs which was caused by Bashir Thugs and Criminal. Sudan shall never be the same again. You accept the SPLM/SRF or Not

    Lucifer has strictly warned his initiates not to disturb Al Bashir, there is a reason why he is allowed to stay in power, if he is removed blood sacrifice supplies will run out.
