Bashir, Kiir agree to establish “hot line” to accelerate implementation of signed deals


Sudan's Omar al-Bashir shares a moment with South Sudan's Salva Kiir in Equatoria Guinea, November 23, 2016 (AP)
November 24, 2016 (KHARTOUM) - Sudanese and South Sudanese presidents agreed to communicate directly to solve problems the joint committees encounter in their discussions to implement the signed agreements between the two neighbouring countries.

Sudan President Omer al-Bashir and South Sudanese President Salva Kiir met on the sidelines of the 4th Africa-Arab Summit in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea on Wednesday.

’’The meeting was candid on the relationship between the two countries," said President Omer al-Bashir at the end of meeting according to a report by the official Sudan News Agency reported in the early morning of Thursday.

The Sudanese president said he and Kiir reiterated their commitment to implement the signed cooperation agreements, and that the joint committees should continue their meetings to ensure its enforcement.

He also disclosed that "it was agreed to communicate directly to remove all obstacles hampering the work of committees or any violation to these agreements," SUNA further reported.

Sudan recently said that the South Sudanese government continue to harbour and support Sudanese rebel groups. But, Juba said they ordered rebels to quit the country.

Also, South Sudanese Defence Minister, Kuol Manyang Juuk, earlier this month said he ordered troops to withdraw from the joint border with the Sudan in line with security arrangements under the Cooperation Agreements the two countries signed on 27 September 2012.

Al-Bashir pointed to the importance of political stability in the two Sudans and its impact on the people of the two countries.

    Ya Omar el Bashir, you know we need to work like brothers inu the two countries are for Sudanese people. You know my brother Bashir, I thought by running away from Khartoum to create my own country will lead to me leaving like a king. You know what, I was almost killed my palace in July this year. My people are dying of hunger....the line went mute!!

      The President of Mathiang Anyor Salva Kiir Kuethpiny can’t be trust. Last month a meeting was held in Juba where the SPLM _N question Taban Beshir agreement with Sudanese authorities which allowed the 4 Sudanese rebels groups such as JEM, SLM, SRF and SPLA-N to quit RSS’ territory. Salva Kiir Kuethpiny told them it was just a political gimmick to deceive Sudan government.Kiir is a big liar

      You will never get open heart and trusted leader in South Sudan if he left president office. Even all South Sudanese people are not happy with his managing state affairs. Don’t you know that his amnesty principles is the one prolong civil war in South Sudan. If rebel were to be killed immediately then we would no rebellion at all. Bashir is not good friend for South Sudan.

        That’s why Kiir has surrendered Abyei to Bashir and the rest jienges to be slaves to the Messiriya and Muraheleen. The jienge cowards target civilians instead of defending their Abyei. If you are from Abyei, sorry Akuma prepare to spend the rest of your jienge life in exile. We have no squatter camp for you, unless you carry for us water like in the 70s and early 80s in Juba.

        @ Akuma
        You are semi-educated or ignorant. There’s different between personality of being kind, good hearted and leadership. Kiir is leader of the country and we need his leadership to managed country affairs such as politics, economic, development and social cohesion. Amnesty and decree are not character of good leadership.

    President Salva and President Bashir are always right given the nature of their work in the two Nation. Things connected with the cooperation and security stability doesnt require third party or middle men. I therefor wish to thank them for agreeing to flash out rebels in and around their teritories.
