Juba in full control of Heglig area, dismisses Khartoum’s claim of takeover - Kiir


April 20, 2012 (JUBA) – South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir Mayardit on Friday said his forces were still in full control of the disputed oil-rich area of Heglig and dismissed claims by the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) that it recaptured the town.

In a televised address to the nation on Friday evening, Kiir said Khartoum was fooling itself by celebrating the imaginary recapture of Heglig, adding that the SPLA will only voluntarily withdraw from the area over the next three days according to the plan laid out by Juba earlier in the day.

On Friday Salva Kiir ordered the withdrawal of the SPLA forces from the area, saying he was responding to the pressure exerted on his government by the international community including South Sudan’s friends who had been calling for withdrawal of his army from Heglig.

Khartoum on Friday following news of the decision by Juba to withdraw its forces from Heglig announced the recapture of the town and organised street celebrations that were broadcast on state television.

Sudan’s Defence Minister Abdel Raheem Muhammad Hussein said in a speech also broadcast on state television that the Sudan Armed Forces had "liberated" Heglig.

But Kiir challenged Khartoum to prove to the world that they have recaptured Heglig by showing live fresh pictures of its forces inside the disputed town. He said as of Friday, the SPLA was still in full control of the area, and held positions 24 miles north of Heglig town and that SAF was still in retreat northwards.

He said the withdrawal will take three days to complete, but warned that should SAF resort to attacking SPLA forces and bombarding South Sudan’s territory, South Sudan’s army will hit back hard.

He said Khartoum was attempting to fool the world with propaganda about Heglig, saying SAF has lost badly in their several attempts to recapture the town.

He urged South Sudanese citizens of the country to remain calm and vigilant, warning that the SPLA is ready to hit back should SAF attempt to advance after the decision to withdraw.

He said his country was ready to go for international arbitration over all the disputed border areas with Sudan.

The minister of information in South Sudan, Barnaba Marial, also speaking on South Sudan TV on Friday evening mocked the announcement of Heglig’s takeover by Sudan’s Defense Minister, saying he wondered why such a senior official would lie to his people that they had recaptured the town.

Marial said the South Sudan army was in full control of Heglig and will withdraw at will in three days in implementing the resolution of the UN Security Council.

A reporter for Sudan Tribune based in Unity State said that according to his sources SPLA forces were still inside Heglig town on Friday and that there had not been any fresh clash with SAF forces during the day.


Earlier on Friday Kiir released statement saying his country would still claim ownership of Heglig - known as Panthou in South Sudan - at the International Court of Arbitration if diplomatic and bilateral efforts fail.

“The decision to pull out troops from Panthou (Heglig) without prejudice to our stance that Panthou remains an integral part of the Republic of South Sudan is in the interest of this nation," the statement from office of the president said.

“We expect that the final status of Panthou (Heglig) and other disputed borders areas will be referred for international arbitration on the final determination of their status”, the release adds.

Highly placed sources in the office of president told Sudan Tribune on Friday that president Kiir did not sleep the whole night of Thursday due to telephone calls from world leaders and diplomats.

The source said he can remember president receiving seven international calls one after the other from world leaders including, US President Obama, Japan, China, UN Security Council president Susan Rice, UK prime minister David Cameron, the AU, all of them advising Kiir to withdraw. Sudan Tribune was not able to reach the countries mentioned to verify the calls on Friday evening.

The SPLA troops would remain on the ground in the key oil area for a further three days, the source said.

The country’s minister of information and broadcast, Barnaba Marial Benjamin, while reading out the presidential statement, said Kiir still believes that Panthou remains a part of the new nation but would allow its final status to be determined by the International Court of Arbitration in The Hague.

“The decision of the president to order withdrawal of the troops from the area does not deny us the right we have on this area. Panthou”, he said.

Juba says that Heglig was administratively transferred to the north only after oil was discovered in the 1970s.

Colonel Philip Aguer, spokesman of the country’s army said the army will respect the decision of the president to withdraw from the area and that withdrawal process would be completed within three days.

Aguer, however, added that withdrawal of the forces from the does not mean the army was not able to defend it or that it was defeated by the Sudan Armed Forces but were obeying orders from the president whom he said is South Sudan’s commander in chief.

“The withdrawal of the troops is not that we were defeated and it doesn’t also mean that we are abandoning the area. No. we are accepting it because we do not want to contradict decision of the president. If our territory is being occupied we will not wait for the international community," Aguer said.

He said SPLA troops "will remain around the area to react to any incursions and react" is SAF’s "bombardment" of Unity State "doesn’t stop."

            President Kiir doesn’t need to withdraw his troops from Panthou, the president need to tell the UN where the 1956 border is located. The UN need to put its peace keeping forces right on the 1956 border.

            There is no point for the SPLA to withdraw. (SAF) will be on the other side of 1956 border and (SPLA) will be on this side of the border which is Panthou.

But there was no sign of an imminent drawdown; several hundred red-bereted commandos arrived from the south, packed like sardines on heavy trucks, heading north.

        The withdrawal by SPLA is to follow all the legal procedures of the land dispute, and not because the land doesn’t belong to South Sudan.

        Remember this is just the beginning of what will be long war. make no mistake, we are coming back!

          South Sudanese are people of that loves peace and not war mongers Just like President Bashir and all his followers in Sudan
          our leaders have made the decision to withdraw so that you the people of sudan don’t die of hunger and shortage of fuel, food, hard currency among others.
          The ICC gang should never insult the elected gov’t of RSS as insects.

    Pls. make things easy for yourselves and admit it, SPLA is defeated and kicked out of Heglig by SAF, as we did when SAF was defeated by SPLA. Mr. Slave Kirr is moron, one day Heglig is part of SS, the other day he set conditions for withdrawal, yesterday he ordered the withdrawal, now he is still in control of Heglig.

      The foreign minister Nhial Deng and the bitch who is representing us in general assembly of UN must resign their positions immediately. We never heard anything from those guys, they faill us seriouly. Mr. Kiir also fail to address the nation for the current situation on the ground? Medias shouldn’t only be used as the sources providers but as a tailback through leadership’ideas!

    I still don’t understand, why is there no anti-aircraft weapon capable of shooting down the Antanov? how are going to protect civilians? how are you going to protect Juba without air defense weapons? something is very wrong with this man.

    The SPLA operation had proved to Bashir intention on negative aggression and agreediness espects against our people in Southern Sudan.Southern Sudan had respected the law, and we demand the law enforcement to value the situation of people in Southern Sudan.Therefore, respect and don’t be submissive again.Mr.president Kiir was right, "any bormement in Unity State",SPLA Bright star compaign will act

          Your prostitute bitch, Northern government is coward and SPLA had shown them how a man act.

          Your government is a liar. we promise to withdraw without being forced but your Bashiit lied that he captured Heglig.

          More than five attempts by SAF to recapture Hegig have failed to mighty SPLA.

    These northern Sudanese are here celebrating when just the other day they was embarrassed to even comment. It just shows your cowards but on the other hand my Janubi brothers and sisters are here commenting whether you claim to have "recaptured Heglig" or not it shows we have a strong heart just like our soldiers who chased you out SPLA oyieeeeeeee

    This is a decision made by our president so that you do not suffer the problem of fuel. remember it is his decision. Try again to attack any part of the south Sudan, Neither the president or UN, the Arab league, USA, EU will save you anymore. We will fuck you again and this time, no single south Sudanese will agree with these idiots. This is the last humanitarian cry to save you dogs
