February 10, 2013 (KHARTOUM) – The Sudanese government may soon ask Kampala to slash the diplomatic staff at its embassy in Khartoum, an official with the ruling National Congress Party (NCP) said today.

The NCP spokesperson Badr al-Deen Ibrahim said that Uganda is now classified as an enemy state adding that they have no mutual interests with Kampala.

Ibrahim said that Uganda is not home to a large number of Sudanese and as such any move to downgrade diplomatic relations would not impact their citizens living there.

"Even if a community of Sudanese exists [in Uganda] their status will be arranged in accordance with diplomatic norms," the NCP official said.

The ties between the two countries have reached a low point particularly after several Sudanese opposition parties and rebel groups signed a joint charter in Kampala last month calling for the overthrow of the Khartoum government.

Sudan has lodged complaints with several regional organisations to protest against Uganda’s hosting of anti-Khartoum groups.

This month Sudan voiced its objection to electing Uganda to a position at the Organisation of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC) commission office during a summit in Cairo.

Ugandan officials on the other hand continue to accuse Sudan of harbouring the notorious Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) rebel group, which has been forced out of northern Uganda.

Some reports have claimed that the Sudanese government continue to back the group, which it used a proxy to fight southern rebels in the civil war that led to South Sudan’s independence.

During the conflict Uganda was a strong ally of the former southern rebels who have governed the Republic of South South since 2011.

Uganda’s president, Yoweri Museveni, has infuriated Sudanese officials in the past for his public support to South Sudan’s independence and his views that Arab Muslims in Sudan are suppressing Africans in the country.

      Uganda is a poor country and fully relies on the western aid to fill the gap in their budget deficit and gives them some momentum in their fragile economy!
      Musseveni was behind all the massacres that occurred in Great lake area and behind the ongoing conflict in eastern Congo!
      Musseveni is ready for whom will pay more to conduct evil job against his African brothers!

                                        ’’calling every thing that you dont agree with is a lie’’ because it is a lie! everything you say is a lie, provie us with a source that says we sold Gezira Scheme or that we sold a gold mine or that we are ’’now’’ importing electricity!
                                        its $1 million not a billion (another lie) and all whats wrong with it is US sanctions which prevents us from using US banks!

                                          N Sudanese,
                                          To disclose my sources would be to disclose me.
                                          As for the UN I am talking about the UN OCHA Humanitarian appeal for Sudan - you can go find the link yourself. They are appealing for almost $1 billion for our country and $1.3 billion for S Sudan
                                          Guess you should read what I write better before you comment and make a fool of yourself - yet again

                                      small misunderstanding, if you said all or not its still a lie because there are ’’NO’’ goldmines sold to the chinese on the first place, you made it up! of course you stand by what you say, you try to make your lies look real by all means, thats how liars are!

                                        Yet again you do not read what is written- I said most of the gold concessions- not goldmines.
                                        And why dont you go to the Ministry in Khartoum and ask to see the gold concession map- then come back to me and accuse me of lying.

    Yoweri Museveni will be a winner at end and Homer AL Bashir would very much follow the same routes most of the Arabs leaders are going through now.

    Uganda is of no use to use as long as that old man is president. Diplomatic ties should be cut once and for all and a tit for tat policy initiated.
