Sudan, South Sudan committee to meet in Juba next week

In statements to the official news agency SUNA, Waal said the JPSC would discuss ways to implement the cooperation agreements signed between the two countries.

He expressed hope that Sudan witnesses security and stability to enhance cooperation between Juba and Khartoum.

The Ambassador further conveyed good wishes of South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir Mayardit to the Sudanese peoples and leadership on the occasion of the 62nd anniversary of Sudan’s independence.

He hoped that Sudan enjoys prosperity and that the anniversary of independence would be an opportunity to achieve development and stability in the country.

In September 2012, both Sudan and South Sudan signed a series of cooperation agreements, which covered oil, citizenship rights, security issues, banking, border trade among others.

The two countries in March 2013 signed an implementation matrix for these cooperation agreements. However, the execution of the agreements didn’t go according to the plan.

South Sudan seceded from Sudan on July 9th, 2011 following a referendum on whether the semi-autonomous region should remain a part of the country or become independent. 99% of the southern voters chose independence.

Relations between the two nations soured after South Sudan’s independence following a series of disputes over a number of issues and accusations of support to rebel groups.

    Salva Kiir and his entire ’government’ of mass-murderers and thieves deserve to die for killing thousands of civilians; for igniting a terrible and needless war under a false prospectus; for being ultimately responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of lives; for being dictatorial; for enabling tribal land theft; for killing journalists; for being corrupt and incompetent...

      ..For enabling Khartoum’s occupation of our lands; and most importantly, for betraying our struggle and putting it into utter disrepute. The death-deserving traitors in Juba are so keen to engage in the continual theft of our oil resource that they will compromise everything. There is no need to continue exporting oil through the North...

        and being liable to pay Khartoum $1.3 billion dollars in ’debt’. Juba should just focus on its recent agreement to supply Ethiopia with oil products. Ethiopia imports $2.8 billion dollars worth of oil products and Juba should do everything possible to meet that need. Ethiopia and Juba have already agreed to build a road that would serve as a conduit of our oil to Ethiopia...

          ..All talk pertaining to splitting Khartoum’s $50 billion dollar debt should be immediately shelved. The debt is none of our concern; we apparently still have $1 billion dollars in debt of our own to attend to. A significant portion of what we’re slated to earn from selling oil products to Ethiopia should be directed towards an alternative pipeline through Ethiopia and Djibouti...

            ..and when our largest (and not yet exploited) oil blocks are brought on line, we can significantly increase our oil exports without subsidizing Khartoum’s occupation of our lands. This is precisely why it’s absolutely essential that the morons in Juba should stop the war and put an end to the suffering of our people and actually commit to improving their lives.

              ..Block B is over 120, 000 km2 and its vast deposits have not been added to our active production; Block B is so large that it has been split into multiple blocks. The other un-utilized block is Block E and it covers all of Bahr el Ghazal. Each one of these blocks dwarf our current active blocks in Upper Nile State and Unity State.

                ..These large Blocks should only be activated once the alternative pipeline has been completed. The alternative pipeline should have been completed years before independence but greed, corruption and myopia prevented this exceedingly important task from being achieved.

                  These are the issues that l for one, would like our people to spending a lot of time discussing with passions if you like. Yes, the current group in the govt & the opposing sides made a terrible mistakes during the interim period from 2005 to 2011. And yet again, they are still at it again. But to be honest, Khent, during the interim period, everybody wanted to get his/her due since no one>

                    was paid a dime during the war and because a lot money was brought from Khartoum in "cartons & bags" and there was no proper institutions like Central bank---a lot of looting of public money occurred. People like Malok Aleng & Arthur Akuendit were the heads of Central Bank of South Sudan & minister of finance respectively & we all know the rest>>>

                      However, South Sudanese should acknowledge that some mistakes were made, but dwelling on those past mistakes is more damaging to our country & our people. Our enemies want to keep South Sudan at constant instability like DRC while at the same time siphoning our oil wealth beneath us on our watch while we are at our throats>>>

                        The US, the UK & some of their allies want to destroy our country at all costs. And this is simply because they are desperately after our oil fields, lands, Nile waters & to Geo-politically proxy fight the China’s present in our country. The US, the UK, their UN, NGOs & their allies have failed badly to regime change the current govt. But they throwing every slime after slime & they hoped that>>>

                          any of their dirty intrigues against our country & our people is going to fly. But the criminals are wasting their times & our times. This is the real game being played in our country & our people behind the scenes in the foreign hotels, brothels & bars----to Geopolitical football play our country & our people like what they did during their then Cold war in DRC, Angola, Mozambique, Cuba>>>

They (the US, the UK, their UN, their NGOs & their allies) hope that they can re-unite our country with their North Sudan like their then East & West Germany. And then the criminals can go & boast about their Western civilization>>>>

                              Some South Sudanese are pretty short-sighted to discern the dirty game the foreign criminals are playing against our country & our people. The idiots like Lam Akol & Thomas Cirillo were forced to run to North Sudan & ethiopia respectively by the US, the UK & their allies purposely to go & use them as their blackmails or bargaining cards against the current govt & the South Sudanese people>>>

What do the evils really think they are to our country & our people? The US was given the first priority right after country’s independence in 2011 to come & invest in our country. But it refused citing lack of infrastructures>

The US went berserk & wanted a regime change, Salva Kiir & his then were govt were considered Communists or socialists over night & were considered dangerous to US & the West interests in Africa & his govt was to be destroyed at all costs>>>

                                        that was why they pushed their Riek Machar & Co. to stage their 2013 foiled coup. Some South Sudanese have closed their minds & eyes to the obvious. Why are the US, the UK, their UN, their NGOs & their allies so fixated on South Sudan & the South Sudanese issues when there are many problems in DRC, CAR, Darfur, Nuba Mts, Southern Blue Nile, Libya, ethiopia, Somalia & even Kenya?>>>

                                          It is pure bullying, simple & square. And as l stated before, it is all about our resources, land, Nile waters & to fight China present in our country by proxy---it is this simple. And to re-unite our country with their North Sudan like their then East & West Germany during their cold war. But that is not gonna under the sun>>>>
