September 28, 2018 (NEW YORK) - South Sudan First Vice President Taban Deng Gai urged the Sudanese government to resolve the armed conflicts in the Blue Nile and South Kordofan states and Darfur region and called for a referendum in Abyei without the Sudanese nomads.

Speaking before the United Nations General Assembly on Friday, Taban dedicated the major part of his speech to the revitalized peace agreement his government has just signed with the armed opposition groups on 12 September.

He praised the role played to the IGAD countries and Sudan "in particular" stressing that "without their critical role this revitalized agreement would not have happened".

Taban further called for the "speedy normalization of relations between Sudan and the United States and the" total lifting" of sanctions on Sudan.

After what, he called on the Sudanese government to reach a negotiated settlement for the conflict in Darfur and the Two Areas.

"We urge the government of the Republic Sudan for the speedy resolution for the contentious issues in the Blue Nile, South Kordofan and Darfur disseminate stability in these areas is critical in our strong believe for a lasting peace in the Republic of South Sudan and the region as a whole," he said.

On the border area of Abyei disputed by Sudan and South Sudan, the First Vice President voiced his government support for a recommendation made by the UN chief last August providing to reconfigure the mandate of the UN peacekeeping for to include the police personnel.

Sudan rejects this proposal saying it will outdated the 20 February agreement that has allowed the deployment of the UNISFA in Abyei. Further, Khartoum underscored that the area is part and parcel of Sudan until a deal is reached by the two countries.

Also, Taban in his statements, which were not included in the official text released by the United Nations, called for a referendum in the disputed areas excluding the Misseriya nomads.

"We also urge this august house to support efforts still at the level of the African Union to find a political solution to the Abyei matter. In particular, we call for the implementation of the AU High-Level Implementation Panel (AUHIP)’s proposal of 21 September 2012 which has been accepted for more than six times to date by the AU Peace and Security Council," he said.

"It is high time that we bring an end to the suffering of the Ngok Dinka people," he concluded.

    Really? How can you ask another country about peace while you can’t control your own people?

    How in the word can Africa’s greatest embarrassment — the most conflict-ridden, most volatile, the gold medalist of human misery in this God-forsaken continent.. "have leaders" (chimps in suits) see fit to point their grubby little fingers at anyone else and beg (like children) for another State to return its own territories!? You all deserve death for what you’ve done...

      ..and should feel immensely embarrassed pretending to represent an actual ’Country’. South Sudan is not a Country - it’s a circus... a circus lorded over by psychotic, mass-murdering clowns. We’ve been so terribly debased by some of the most venal, most corrupt, myopic, mass-murdering monsters a people can have for a ’government’ - that we cannot pass moral judgement on anybody else for decades...

        ..So the collective (bullet-deserving criminal syndicate) - mis-representing itself as a ’government’, should take stock of the apocalyptic misery our people are enduring...and exercise a small degree of self-awareness (from guilt and shame) and just shut the f*** up! I really do wish there was a hell for these vermin to go to. Most South Sudanese wish death upon our so called ’leaders’.

            There is one essential difference between the despots in Khartoum and Juba -> a method to the madness. Successive regimes in Khartoum have committed many horrific crimes, but there was always an ultimate goal (s); I imagine that there would have been (mostly Northern specific) economic development after the Islamisation and Arabization programs....

              ..had succeeded and the insurgencies in Sudan had been pacified. The current regime in Khartoum is the worst the North has ever had, but even they had the sense to invest some resources into infrastructure. The criminals in Juba have no such desires or inclinations. The mass-murdering clowns in Juba kill for the sake of it... they are beneath animals.

                I don’t want anyone to misconstrue what I’m saying here. The Ignaz are responsible for the deaths of millions and are bonafide human rights abusers. Khartoum devotes 80% of the budget to the military and security services, but this is evil with an objective in mind. The Interim Period was wasted by both the North and the South — but Juba took the negligence to another level.

                  The level of naivety of some of our leaders is quiet mindbogglingly. The AU manifesto was that all countries in Africa have to remain as they were demarcated by the Europe powers. And the exception of South Sudan & Eritrea independence were allowed because because there was nothing that the AU can do about them. South Africa was reluctant about supporting South Sudan independence>>>>
