November 1, 2017 (KHARTOUM) - Sudan’s President Omer al-Bashir said his government would not allow South Sudanese opposition leaders residing in Khartoum to carry out any political or military activities hostile to Juba.

Khartoum hosts several South Sudanese opposition leaders who were in Ethiopia and Kenya during the first three years of the conflict. Also, Khartoum seems disposed to play a greater role in the resolution of the four-year conflict after refusing to interfere in the conflict leaving for the other IGAD countries.

Speaking at the opening session of the joint talks with the visiting President Salva Kiir Mayardit on Wednesday, al-Bashir said that the purpose of Sudan’s hosting for the consultations on the High-Level Revitalization Forum (HLRF) and its participation in the preparatory phase is to support the ongoing efforts to reach a peaceful settlement through the adoption of the ceasefire and creating a conducive atmosphere for the political process.

"Sudan’s steadfast stance towards South Sudan in regional and international forums is to support the initiative of the national dialogue in South Sudan, preserve its security and stability, and not allow South Sudanese politicians and leaders in Khartoum to engage in any political or military activities against the South Sudanese government"

Last October, IGAD Special Envoy for South Sudan, Ismail Wais held a series of meetings with the South Sudanese opposition groups in Khartoum, while the Sudanese Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour travelled with his Ethiopian counterpart Workneh Gebeyehu to South African to meet with the leader of SPLM-IO Riek Machar.

Under a deal reached with the United States on the lift of economic sanctions, the Sudanese government has to support the ongoing efforts to end the South Sudanese conflict and to abstain from supporting the warring parties.

Al-Bashir in his speech said Sudan supports all the efforts to unite the South Sudanese.

He further called to include those who were not part in the 2015 agreement, saying it the only viable option to achieve peace between the South Sudanese parties.

A South Sudanese presidential aide disclosed to Sudan Tribune last week that the discussions during the visit includes a briefing on the progress made in the implementation of the 2015 peace agreement, Juba position on the IGAD role in the implementation process, the role the member states will play in the revitalization and other complementing initiatives the government has undertaken.

He further pointed to the national dialogue, the reunification process of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) factions facilitated by the Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni as some of these complementing initiatives which the government has undertaken to complement the implementation of the peace agreement.

For his part, President Kiir pledged to involve the South Sudanese opposition groups in the national dialogue. Further, he pointing to the "successful national dialogue process in Sudan saying that his country would like to benefit from the Sudanese experience.

The South Sudanese leader pledged that his country would not harbour any opposition groups threatening Sudan’s peace and security and renewed his country’s desire for good neighbourliness with Sudan.

Khartoum accuses Juba of harbouring armed groups from Darfur region to fight the rebel groups.

    You always aganist to every situation which supposes to bring to South Sudan,
    Please for your sincere information, Riek Machar, and others arms groups which are operating in South Sudan should not be honored forever and ever unless they agrees with Salva Kiir government to support it for better change rather than to engulf by force.

        South South,

        As one of Kiir’s bootlickers, do the needful. RAPPROCHEMENT is the word my knowledge or lack of diplomacy notwithstanding. Bashir is now dancing to the tune of the Yankees and the heat on his arse is being slowly turned down. Ga and ask Kiir to stop throwing tantrum and behave like a good boy......

          Eastern,
          Reference to the 4-Freedoms and submissive approach the Kiirminal made in 2012 to Bashir, groundwork is already being made for re-uniting with the Sudan. SS exists only as Bashir´s surrogate state and it is only a question of time.

            jubaone,

            Only if we have very dumb people in South Sudan to believe your bogus claim that re-union of two Sudan is a real thing, but if we have people with simple education, they will tell you that you are lying to your teeth. Re-union of two Sudans will come only through agreement of two countries, then following by another referendum Majority of People in South Sudan MUST vote yes for re-union.

                South South,

                Just listen to the meek speech from a worn-out Kiir aka Mr. INU....I counted about 13 INU in that short speech..!

              South South,
              That is the most stupid assertion. The Kiirminal unilaterally consented to the 4 Freedoms even as we still getting over the jellaba trauma. Jellabas including your Darfur cousins were literally running SS as if liberation and referendum meant nothing. Kiirminal doesn’t care for SS, he cares for himself. Just follow him like an idiot and shut up Jienge.

                jubaone,
                Moron, shut up, you have no point to make here, just throwing out bogus comments. Your tribe speak Arabic Juba and abandons their native language, Bari. If you do not like fake Arabs, you will start liberating your own people first. Just sitting under computer and talk like a real man.

    Shame on Dinka President. His visit shows lack of concern for the refugees. I had wished he relates to Omar el Bashir the concern of mistreatment of South Sudanese refugees, by Sudanese authorities. The Arabs are busy fucking Dinka women here around Konyokonyo, Custom and Jebel Market, for a cup of floor given the economic crisis, yet their King aka Salva K.M is pleading with Bashir for cooperatio

      Fair Man,
      I was in Wau and traversed jienge territory: Turalei, Gogrial, Wunrok, Gok Machar and also spent some time in Aweil close to the old airport. I have seen how they live and so no jienge can tell me shit 💩. In Wau, they talk about nyanjienges and say "mor girishen". I wondered what it meant, it was a fuck for girishen.

    Stupid South South
    Dinka primitivism goes beyond control everyday. Idiot, why are you denying the realities? Kiir is the Commmander in Cheat of the Sudan PLA. Sudan is distinct from the South Sudan and SPLM/A is either a foreign unit in South Sudan or working with SPLM/A-North Agar/Hilu factions, hoping to destroy NCP to reunite two countries. You are monitored.

    False Millionaire
    Let the peace begins with communities of South Sudan. All tribes should execute their own sons they believe they are threatening the peaceful co-existence of South Sudan. Assigned are:- the Dinka Bahr el Ghazal community, to do away with Salva Kiir, Paul Malong, Mawien Tor, Awet Akot, Marial Chanuong, Akol Koor, Gogory, Ayiendit. For Bor Community, get rid of Makweir Lueth, Kuol
