SPLM-N is willing to sign a humanitarian ceasefire with Sudan


June 7, 2012 (KHARTOUM) - The Sudan People’s Liberation Movement - North (SPLM-N) is ready to sign a cessation of hostilities agreement with Sudanese government to facilitate the distribution of humanitarian assistance to the needy civilians in South Kordofan and Blue Nile.

Leaders of the SPLM-NThe SPLM-N was asking the international community to pressure Khartoum to allow humanitarian access to the rebel held areas in the Nuba Mountains and Blue Nile where thousands of civilians are deprived of food and are suffering from malnutrition.

However the rebel group, which formed an alliance with other rebel groups in Darfur region, says it is determined to topple the regime of the National Congress Party (NCP) and will engage in battles in different regions with the Sudanese army before attacking Khartoum.

Khartoum, on the other hand, has stated that the rebels have prevented civilians from regaining government controlled areas to exploit them, in its anti-regime propaganda, demanding them to accept a ceasefire to allow humanitarian access.

Malik Aggar SPLM-N chairman and his secretary general Yasir Arman informed the Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi on Thursday that they accept a cessation of hostility in South Kordofan and Blue Nile for humanitarian purposes, Sudan Tribune has learnt

Aggar and Arman discussed mainly with the Ethiopian leader issues related to the humanitarian situation in Blue Nile and South Kordofan where the SPLM-N rebels have been fighting against the Sudanese army since a year ago.

The rebel officials however showed some reservation against a proposition that Zenawi made to engage political talks with Khartoum to end the dispute in the South Kordofan and Blue Nile.

United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) said Sudanese refugees continue to arrive to the refugee camps in South Sudan from Blue Nile and South Kordofan.

"An average of 4,000 refugees per day have made their way into Upper Nile’s Maban Country from Sudan’s Blue Nile State", said the UNHCR last week.

On Thursday, the United Nations Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Sudan, Ali Al-Za’tari, said they were alarmed by reports of "raids and looting of markets by armed groups in both South Kordofan and North Kordofan that have recently forced yet more civilians to flee their homes."

Ali urged the clashes to stop and to allow humanitarian access to the civilian particularly women and children. While Amnesty International (AI) called for international action stressing that over half a million people had fled conflict areas in the two states.

Rebel sources said Sudanese official, members of the Khartoum delegation to the talks with the South Sudanese government, tried to conclude some understandings with the SPLM-N delegation but the latter refused to hold any meetings with them.

Sudan refused a provision in UN Resolution 2046 asking to hold direct talks with the SPLM-N on the basis of a framework agreement brokered by the African Union mediation and signed on 28 June 2011. President Omer Al-Bashir at the time denounced the deal.

Following the adoption of the 2 May resolution, the SPLM-N rebels also declined to hold talks with Khartoum stressing they demand a comprehensive process including their allies of Darfur rebels. Khartoum rejected this demand.

    No cease fire. these cowards will use UN planes maskerading as flight attendants, to survey your positions. Remember when they did back then in the 90s until Garan had to arrest four of them on UN planes. Cowards.

      You are not DARFURIAN.
      But you insist; then DARFUR is free big land and come for civil war.

      Try to concentrate on the way how secure the basic human needs "water, food and shelter" for your southerners.

    GOS and NCP must not allow those liars of what is called SPLA-N to speak on behalf of the majority.

    ALLAH will not forgive you.

    I wonder why DARFURIAN REBELS are opening their big mouth away from DARFUR and scatter all lies about DARFUR to IC !

        Most of SOUTHERN SUDANESE here in this website are very fluent in using bad, impolite, irrespectable, street women language and even behavior of bad boys.

        Is this what the universities and training centers in SOUTH SUDAN are developing the peoples there with it?

        No need for DOUBLE STANDARDS.

        The DARFURIAN rebels whom you strongly support killed my relatives in their land while many of them knew nothing about NCP and never seen KHATOUM.

        DARFURIAN rebels left SAF in peace

        Illogical i thought you might have been captured in Heglig !!

        SPLM-N is composed of mainly Nuba fighters, Ingessena and Funj. Therefore its is a racial militia, not even political party. Just like the darfur rebel groups, each group racially made up. Parties like these do not have political clout or support outside its areas. So when they talk of regime change it a waste of time. Maybe locally.

        Arman and Al Hilu are political parasites, looking after their own interests. The government of Sudan and Khartoum in general is filled with peoples of all these races. Locally they are empowered and still affiliate with the NCP and other northern political parties. So your talk of marginalization bla bla is bull. You are hypocrites after power and milking these people for your own interests.

          Land of the blacks you retard !! Im sure im just as black as you, blood or skin. But you paint this picture to your Zionist and evangelical nuts of this deference for your own interest.

          Like the moron that said arabs came to sudan in 1600. When did the whites come to Americas, Australia or south Africa. They own it and run it. So stick to you little waste land South Sudan and close the borders.

        No one from SPLM_N is indicted by the intrenational court and so they can not be criminals. Agar was a legitimate Governor of Blue Nile, elected by his people and forced out by the crimals in Khartoum.

          There are 86 suspected persons and 18 are from DARFURIAN rebels.

          Bear in mind ABDULWAHID is one of them who committed many genocides in south DARFUR.

          KHALIL was one of them.

          The criminals of ICC are very professionl in "Hide & Seek"

          Thank you very much for reminding me about my NIGHT DREAMS about 45 years ago.

          Tell your SPLA-N & SPLM-N to ask even my cattles in DARFUR if they will accept them.

          MUSA HILAL is an ARAB ROOTED DARFURIAN; ask your SPLA-N to arrest in SUDAN or in CHAD if they believe that they are men

        NM & BN warriors are more men than your Janjaweed ever will be, you abduct, rape and pillage all in the cover of darkness.

        SAF tried to disarm SPLA-N by force and look what happened, Al Hilu now has an arsenal of weapons that made the NCP beg for negotiations with him. Your coward Janjaweed will never rest unless you relinquish your claim to African land.

        Migrant RETARDS!

          The illogical Jalabbi, your thugs should lay down their arm and abide by the law and constitution before talking about humanity. They are being used by the SPLA in a proxy war to claim land of Sudan in Darfur, BN & SK to be annexed to SS. They are not worriers they are traiters. What is your/their postion about land taken from Sudan to SS; or you are just a traitor like them?!Seems so!

            Mohammed Ali,
            They are not traitors but truly freedom fighters who are trying to bring justice, freedom, democracy (secular with no Sharia), and equality for all Sudanese, instead of castigating them and pulling the moral equivalency crap. By the way Mohammed, are you the one I sometime meet at Sydney Uni?

            You wrote southern Sudanese. Southern Sudanese are Darfurians like yourself, people from Nuba mountains and Blue nile states.Know that the people of the new state are called South Sudanese. The current small Sudan has a new south.

          ARAB ROOTED DARFURIANS don’t rape women based on our culture.

          Many DINKA women who married to our men we call them "UMME".

          RAPING is main part of culture for many NON-ARAB ROOTED TRIBES. They tried raping our women but they were killed by our brave women.

          We are ready for fighting and kill or be killed.
          It shame in our believes even to fight women. We consider it DEGRADING ACT.

    A Nobel move by the SPLM/N . GOS should agree to the humanitarian cease fire once a distribution and monitoring mechanism has been established or agreed upon.

    I have see original Map of Sudan show that there were no West Kordofan and South Kordofan, what were there were North Kordofan and Kadugli province but Kadugli, and all Eastern Sudan Port Sudan were belong to South Sudan, So is better for all those to join South Sudan in case for them to live in peace with freedom.
