May 27, 2018 (KHARTOUM) - The Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N) led by Malik Agar Sunday dismissed press reports claiming that its Vice-Chairperson Yasir Arman would return soon to Khartoum and accused the security service of fabricating the fake news.

On its issue of Sunday, Al-Watan daily newspaper reported that Arman would head an advance delegation to prepare the return of the SPLM-N political and military leadership to the country after waging a seven-war against the regime in the Blue Nile and South Kordofan states.

"What Al-Watan reported on the arrival to Khartoum of an SPLM advance delegation led by the Vice-Chairperson and others, is an abomination fabricated by the security apparatus, in which it used an affiliated newspaper".

"Our position is known and clear, we stand by calls for building a broad front to resist the regime, and we join our hands with the hands of our people and none other," further stressed a statement issued by the SPLM-N Agar.

Arman recently issued a paper about the Sudan general elections of 2020. The rebel leader said their group can take part in the electoral process, if the regime signs a comprehensive peace agreement with the opposition, restores freedoms and set up needed conditions for free and fair elections.

This position is also shared by the National Umma Party and some leaders of the Sudanese Congress Party which remains divided over the issue.

The statement underscored that the SPLM-N Agar leadership nowadays is taking part in the Sudan Call meetings in Paris to "build a wider front to resist the regime".

Further, the rebel group recalled the recent clashes with the Sudanese government forces in the Blue Nile state stressing the continuation of their political stance "in the trench of the people" to achieve peace, justice and democracy.

Following the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement with the government in January 2011, Arman and Pagan Amum led an SPLM delegation to prepare the group’s return to the country.

      You are the uninformed savage that just wants to spread mad ideas that you can’t even prove. And don’t worry your tribe won’t wipe out anyone other then their own backsides. It’s funny you’re still talking about your tribe like you just came outta the bush. Sudan is way past tribalism. It’s been slowly fading away for years making way for a educated modern society.

        Eventually the splm N will be forced to negotiate. The SAF is gradually improving its ways to make it a professional army. With little war or clashes in the past few years conscription has ended and soldiers are getting trained properly. Plus all the new equipment they made/bought. The SAF have refined their tactics and can crush the splm n to hiding in south sudan. This is 2018 while the spla was

          Fighting their current war since 2013 the SAF has been building and improving its methods for combat. Better coordination between the SAFs different sectors has been achieved through multiple training operations. Gaining the upper hand militarily is how countries win wars.
