February 4, 2013 (KHARTOUM) - The Sudanese army accused South Sudan forces (SPLA) of not fulfilling prompt and unconditional withdrawal of its troops from five disputed areas stressing that such position negatively affects security and stability of the border between the two states.

Sudan and South Sudan agreed in September last year to activate a buffer zone between the two countries in all the disputed zones on the common border to avoid a return to war between the two countries.

However, the operationalisation of this demilitarised zone is not yet effective due to the divergence of the two parties over the inclusion of South Kordofan and Blue Nile borders in this zone. Also, on Mile 14, the two parties disagree over the surface of the claimed area.

In a press release published on Monday, the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) spokesperson Al-Sawarmi Khaled Saad said that Juba’s non-compliance with withdrawal is a rejection of the Security Council Resolution 2046 and all the agreements signed by both parties.

The military spokesperson cautioned that Juba failure to withdraw troops has a serious impact on the achievement of the common interest of the two peoples, and adversely affect the security and stability on the border between the two countries.

He added that Sudan, in its letter to the UNISFA commander forces, confirmed that SAF forces have no military presence south to the centreline of the demilitarized area.

The South Sudanese government on 16 January announced the withdrawal of its troops from the disputed area.

Juba also stressed it accepted in a meeting held in Addis Ababa on 15 January at level of the joint political and security committee that the full demilitarisation of Mile 14 will be completed by D-day +47 days.

"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", said South Sudanese defence minister John Kong Nyuon, as reported in the statement.

Al-Sawarmi also denied reports that James Gai, leader of the rebel South Sudan Liberation Movement is conducting military attacks against the SPLA saying he is under arrest, reaffirming Khartoum’s commitment to not support or harbour South Sudanese rebel groups.

        Where is the independent confirmation that Sudan has withdrawn its SAF from the centerline of the demilitarized zones? Sudan always rushes to the media to give impression that she is a nice lady and South Sudan is a bad man in his land. When did the withdrawal begin and end? Who confirmed it? AU that Khartoum knows or the one I know?

          Paul, SAF wrote to the UN to verify its postion on the ground & did’t went to the media to declare until it’s letter reached the UN.On the contrary, your habitual SPLA liers " who were forced several times to apologize internationaly for their lies" went to the media to claim that they have withdrawl unilateraly from the borders before the African summit in a very stupid bid to " bluff"the leaders

      Mr. Jalaby, I believe you are not a North Sudanese otherwise you shouldn’t have said whatever you have been saying about South Sudan for the past two years. I believe you are conscious that who has won after all the bloodshed in old Sudan. Know that History repeats itself. So refrain from your negative talk about South Sudanese if you are really enlighten person.

        He is the younger child and has two brothers and his older brother is working in Khartoum. He had graduate at one of the best University in USA in political science with minor economy. He influently speaks Nuer more than I do. Hey Jalaby, I am sure you exactly know who are talking to you now and will expose your identity more to Southerners till you have stop say shits about South.

PATHETIC... THAT OIL SHOULDN’T BE LET GO LIKE THAT OTHERWISE THE MONEY IS SOUTH SUDAN’S.

      Mr.Wang,
      I want that vision to be possible. We needs SPLA troops to be within Khartoum so that Arabs in Khartoum can face the same problems that we have in the South. I wish to go back and carry PKM to confront that fucken city call Khartoum.

    Arabs are just the same every where in the world. People in from other parts of the world always keep asking how managed to stay with these devils for so many decades. And we continue to them that apart from Israel the only people Arabs know so well are ’us’. Arabs have big mouths but they don’t fight.

    Arabs have big mouths. They are the best pretenders. In 1967, most people they would wake up not to see any Isreal again after many Arab nations combined troops to attack Israel. After 6 days of war there was no Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Syria leave alone small ones like Sudan. Then Arabs lost Jeruslaem in totality, Sinai and vast parts of their territories to Isreal. They knelt for Camp David for an ans
