August 26, 2012 (KHARTOUM) – An African Union group of experts on boundary demarcation is in Khartoum for talks on border demarcation and disputed areas with South Sudan days before the resumption of talks in Addis Ababa.

The delegation was in Juba where it held similar discussions to assess Juba’s point of view on the disputed border.

Sudan says there are only five disputed locations on the common border but Juba says their are nine disputed area that belong to the new republic, which seceded from Sudan last year as part of a 2005 peace deal.

Al-Obeid Marawah, spokesperson of the foreign ministry in Khartoum, told reporters on Sunday that the visiting delegation will hold intensive talks with the Sudanese experts on issues of border demarcation with the South Sudan.

He further said the upcoming talks on unresolved issues in Addis Ababa are expected to last for three weeks where the parties will discuss all the issues including border and security arrangements.

Regarding the date of the talks he said the process may start on Thursday 30 August.

However South Sudanese government spokesperson Barnaba Marial Benjamin told reporters in Juba he expects the discussion recommence after the funerals of the late Ethiopian Prime Minister on 2 September.

Officials in Khartoum and Juba say they are still awaiting the position of the mediation to learn more about the exact date of talks.

SUDANESE OFFICIAL IN JUBA

Foreign ministry Undersecretary, Rahmat-Allah Mohamed Osman, will fly to Juba next Wednesday for talks with South Sudanese officials.

This visit is the first since the deterioration of relations between the two countries.

Following a meeting with Rahmat-Allah, South Sudanese ambassador in Khartoum Mayan Dut Waal told reporters that the Sudanese official will discuss issues related to visas, and direct flights between the two capitals.

The South Sudanese ambassador also attended Sunday a commemoration ceremony held in Khartoum to honour the memory of Paulino Matip, deputy commander in chief of the South Sudanese army, who died last week in Nairobi.

The event was attended by many South Sudanese in the capital and Sudanese officials. Lam Akol, leader of the South Sudan’s main opposition party - the SPLM-DC - was among those who took part in the ceremony.

          A normal person can see if he is leading or being led in order to see the position of others.
          if you are not naive you could have not only comment alone while others are not, this show that your degree of madness is very high and can not know that the world has changed behind you in grieve for the death of God’s Loved creature (Man) while you are enjoying aimlessly.

          from the logical point of view, if the northern brothers could mourn about our dead and yet you are enjoying, how do you see yourself to be? whom will you mourn about? when your money is out of pocket? when you are not at bar? or when you have nothing to steal?

    AU, UNSC, US, UK, EU, AL should send facts finding teams about 2 Sudans borders or else they risk more border conflicts than that of Ethiopia n Eritrea in 2 Sudans. Khartoum should too know that North & South borders are well documented n available in UK archives, even though Khartoum attempted to buy these maps off libraries there! Shame on NCP & NUP of N. Sudan! The other 4 areas r South’s areas

      Ya Al-Obeid Marawah,
      You cannot dictate the duration of the discussions on the outstanding issue as if the "6-year interim period" was miscalculated for implementing CPA. If Juba says it will only take a day/week, what will you say? What are you capitalizing on? Are you the mediator, UNSC or a time keeper?

        ..Are you (NCP) popularly supported by the political forces whose members are likely to get teargased in the Mosques, arrested, tortured, jailed, and raped for peaceful demonstrations? Security issue that is geared towards refusal to demarcate North-South borders while encroaching on resource-rich South Sudan territory is unacceptable

          Sudan internal security problem is the result of intransigence to resolve the issue of conducting popular consultation in SK and BN in good faith including Darfur issue which led to Bashir’s indictment by ICC. International community should recognize the political rights and freedom of these two areas before listening more to Khartoum’s complaint of security

            The blame still goes to international community for failing to listen to Juba’s concern that implementation of CPA was moving at tortoise/snail pace . Juba knew the implications and warned Khartoum about holding Referendum on time but Khartoum’s political calculation was absolutely different and based on generating potential issues of setting preconditions for discussions on what would be called “

              ...“outstanding issues”.
              Khartoum believes that dwelling on setting preconditions of resolving all the “outstanding CPA issues” will resonate with mediation and international efforts so that Juba gets blamed for allegedly providing support to its former comrades (SPLM-N) who are still pursuing their political rights.

                ..Khartoum feels it cannot be blamed for failing to demarcate North-South Borders or supporting southern militia groups despite the captured- and-late r-released- helicopter transporting commanders of the late George Athor in broad daylight. However, Khartoum deserves blame for what we now call outstanding issues.

    Brother Paul, U talked well. SPLM raised all of these earlier than now, but this so-called UNSC or International Community, wherever it is did not follow n cautioned Khartoum about failures. Western world is so relax in dealing tough with Khartoum n one gets confused of what an issue is it? Look at what is happening in Syria, n z brutal king is being kept there after killing 17,000 pple n more!!

    I always wonder though, how would Lam Akol ever be a legitimate opposition leader in S. Sudan when he spends most of his valuable time in what supposedly be South Sudan’s number 1 enemy backyard(Khartoum)? I like the SPLM-DC by name. It’s a nice political party name but its doctrine is too delusional to galvanize voters.
