Sudan drops compensation demands for confiscated oil assets


January 26, 2013 (KHARTOUM) - Sudan has dropped its demand for financial compensation over oil assets South Sudan confiscated after gaining independence, president Omer Al-Bashir announced on Friday ahead of a meeting of the African Union Peace and Security Council (AUPSC).

The two countries sealed nine agreements over disputed issues on 27 September but Khartoum’s demand of $1.8 billion as financial compensations for the confiscation of Sudapet assets in South Sudan had been left unresolved.

“As a show of good faith, and in response to their request, I announce that Sudan has dropped its arbitration suit,” Bashir said at the AUSPC meeting between heads of states and governments in Addis Ababa.

Sudanese foreign minister Ali Karti told Sudan News Agency (SUNA) that Khartoum had dropped the claim to allow the resolution of other financial and economic issues, such as an international pledge to support Sudan for the loss of oil income after South Sudan become an independent state in July 2011.

Juba has in the past refused Sudanese demands, saying it was normal to take control of assets within its territory after gaining recognition of its status as a sovereign state.

The South Sudanese government has also demanded Khartoum drop compensation claims before its participation in an international campaign to support Sudan’s demand to cancel some $40 billion of external debt.

Sudan has also stopped demanding compensation for damage to its oil installations in Heglig following its 10-day capture by the South Sudanese army (SPLA) in April 2012.

      BRAVO Mawien,
      Even if Khartoum city was destroyed South Sudan can not even pay one cent bcoz it was build with South Sudan resources.
      Instead of them paying us back those you mentioned they claim compensation shame on them.

          After all this year and half, why do you think your economy is crambling? Why do you not have dollars available to provide much needed essentials? Why does your country need debt relief from my beloved and beautiful south sudan? your desert is full of thugs and crooks stealing resources from Nuba and fur and that is why they are fighting to benefit from their resources.

          @northern Sudanese, Ding is not shit. You’re the shit. What’s wrong about telling the truth LOL? Yeah, Khartoum was built with our money. Explain it to me then, on how Khartoum wasn’t built with our money. Anyway, I don’t negotiate with the terrorist. We already killed your leader Osman bin laden. South Sudan, Israel, united states are the only super powers.

    That is the crazy idea. How come Bashir needs compensation while he looted most of our oil since 2005. Sudan should not play around! Let them tell the truth. No more looting of this Crude oil this time.

    To all my fellow South Sudanese.
    Watch out. The Khartoum govt is setting a trap to repay their loan to the international communities via our resources, since their meangre resouce can not repay back their borrowed loan.
    Lets keep our head high & you’ll be surprise to hear that Khartoum is sold to China to repay their debt.
    That’s what i’m waiting to hear.

    Thks, you said all. Modern Khartoum including their current jet fighters, weapon factory, among others directly comes from South Sudan oil. If Khartoum asked to to be compensated for a decade old, rusted oil assets left during division of Sudan, then ordinary South Sudanese must be concerned about knowledge of their representatives....

    Whether you are North or South Sudanese, KHARTOUM OWES SOUTH SUDAN & NOT OTHER WAY AROUND. Always remember South Sudan oil start following to North Sudan since 1990s. The very assets NiF in Khartoum try to use as a bargaining chip are actually South Sudan’s assets in the frist place. Or you tell me what make them Khartoum assets?

      Dr. Claimer Holocaust Traitor Machar was wrong by signing the FAKE Agreement called Oil-Self-determination. If Riek didn’t inking on that days, I believed our SPLA would have controlled 99% of Sudan. Which is supposedly to be done. Unfortunately, our blinded Dr. Macieth give this opportunity away, we have to be careful with those animals who are defending on us.
