Sudan says it furnished evidence to Kiir on Juba’s support to rebels


May 13, 2013 (KHARTOUM) – Sudan’s ruling National Congress Party (NCP) has disclosed that it had furnished senior officials in South Sudan including president Salva Kiir with detailed information on their government’s support to anti-Khartoum rebels prior to their recent attack in north and south Kordofan states.

The NCP’s spokesperson Yasser Yousef, who spoke following a meeting of the party’s political sector, called on Juba and its army to stop aiding rebels in Sudan, stressing that maintaining good relations between the two countries is contingent upon implementation of the cooperation agreements, especially ones relating to refraining from supporting and harbouring rebel groups.

Yousef, affirmed that information published by National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) yesterday on South Sudan’s government support for the rebels has been handed over to South Sudan’s leadership.

The NISS said that Juba provided rebels from Sudan revolutionary Front (SRF) with weapons, ammunition, vehicles, housing and medical care.

But South Sudan on Sunday dismissed these claims.

“There is no single truth in these allegations. The government of the Republic of South Sudan has always been clear on these unfounded allegations. We have said time and again that South Sudan does not provide any support to any rebel. We believe in peaceful coexistence with our neighbours,” said South Sudan information minister, Barnaba Marial.

Yousef, further renewed support for the armed forces, and called for negotiating with the rebels after defeating them militarily on the ground, saying “all Sudanese efforts must be combined to achieve that goal”.

He pointed out that President Kiir’S imminent visit to Khartoum is aimed at following up on the implementation of the cooperation agreements including maintaining secure borders and enabling functioning of verification mechanisms in order to disarm rebels and sever their relations with South Sudan.

President Kiir intends to visit Khartoum for the first time since October 2011 to witness delivery of the first oil shipment to international markets through Sudanese territory.

      On April 20 the SAF spokesman said they have no proof to link South Sudan with the SRF rebels. the same day they said that SPLM-N top military commander Abdel-Aziz al-Hilu was killed.
      Now Sudan tells us that al-Hilu is alive, and South Sudan is aiding the rebels.
      Which story do you believe, and why?

        This is what they said:-
        "Khartoum — The spokesperson of Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) Colonel al-Sawarmi Khalid Sa’ad said that Khartoum has no evidence linking South Sudan to the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF)".
        "The Sudanese information minister Ahmed Bilal Osman claimed that SPLM-N top military commander Abdel-Aziz al-Hilu was killed".

        How hypocritical are those Sudanese? They are supporting Yau Yau in South Sudan and here they are running their mouths that South Sudan is supporting their own rebel! If there is a way that South Sudan will support freedom fighters of Darfur and South Kordofan; I will welcome it in a second. Now we will welcome all Sudanese rebels to train and armed them in South Sudan that’s far game!

        You are very right and has the core point of our security problems. The unregulated communication network companies operating in South Sudan are the causes and bases for these accusations made by Khartoum. The problem we have in South Sudan is that even if people try as much as they can to inform the government security apparatus; they do not take the advice seroiusly.

          None of the security agents spent his/her time analysing these fruitful messages being posted on the websites except few when they have heard information from other media outlets like BBC,Radio France International, Voice of America, and many more. Lastly but not the least, Kiir should not attempt to go to Khartoum in the name of witnessing the first oil shipment to international market. That is..

            unacceptable.There are government branches managing it..the Ministry of Petroleum and Mining plus his Sudanese Counterpart are there to do it.This is a plot and we South Sudanese should not allow ourselves to be cheated like that.They want to announce to the world that they have peace with us, while forgetting the painful heart we have now after Late Chief Kuol-Adool was killed in Abyei recently.

    The NCP always make up stories when they are defeated. South Sudan has never and will never establish links with Sudanese rebels. NCP and Sudan should not listen to our SPLM-DC spies in South Sudan. NISS gets its wrong information from SPLM-DC that seeks to overthrow the legitimate gov’t of the Republic of S. Sudan. That is a dream that will never be realized. Just that!
