June 10, 2013 (KHARTOUM) – The spokesman of the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) Colonel Al-Sawarmi Khalid Saad dismissed accusations made by South Sudan of incursions into its territory calling it "baseless".

The army spokesman speaking to state media stressed that Khartoum is fully committed to the international borders in accordance with the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA).

Col. Sawarmi also reiterated Khartoum’s assertions of an "occupation" by Juba of six Sudanese border areas.

On Sunday, South Sudan army spokesman Philip Aguer claimed that SAF troops invaded Kuek, an area located about 10km North West of Renk county in Upper Nile state forcing SPLA to retreat.

“The Sudan Armed Forces violated the security arrangement and crossed into Kuek. They have remained there. They are still in the area until this moment. They are in control”, Aguer told reporters yesterday.

But SAF official said that Juba’s allegations were made in response to the announcement by director of Sudan’s National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) about SPLA’s occupation at a time when Khartoum has completed its withdrawal according to signed agreements between the two countries.

Relations between the two countries took an abrupt turn to the worst last weekend after Sudanese president Omer Hassan al-Bashir ordered the government to halt oil flow from landlocked through the pipelines in response to Juba’s alleged support to rebels.

    Dear my fellow South Sudanese Intellectuals,
    it pained me so much to read your comments on this side and the nature at which you write frankly speaking never showed any dignity nor maturity. May be because of your different ethnic back grounds but indeed very sorry for you.

    I would appreciate, you think twice before putting your fingers on the key board and reason out what you would like to comment on, so that, readers feel interested in your articles.
    Not insult or abuse can attract readers to your article. Be Diagnostic in your respond but not emotional. That is why Ruling party SPLM failed the direction and lost the vision of South Sudan.

      Khartoum can fabricate intelligence info/evidence that South Sudan is supporting SRF simply because SRF has been lately making significant advance. Khartoum is upset with the low morale of its army on many fronts since April. The fighters of Khartoum’s proxy war against South Sudan are realizing the evil plan of Khartoum and how the gallant SPLA forces are advancing on David Yau Yau.

        In addition, the military chopper downed in Blue Bile, coupled with especially the return of Gen. Johnson Uliny, watched live on SSTV and other media outlets, with a good number of vehicles and weapons which do not need briefing international media/community as a counter accusation have placed Khartoum back to the drawing board.

          The footage and the testimony of Gen. Johnson Uliny alone triggered this emotional decision on oil shutdown without a 60-day notice to Juba because the recently announced international media briefing by Khartoum is cancelled to avoid a stream of questions pertaining more to the return of Uliny than its constant song of accusation against South Sudan.

            However, the only option left for Khartoum, following these predicaments, was to surprise its domestic audience in particular and international community that South Sudan oil would never ever pass through Sudan’s oil pipe line again because the former supports SRF.

              Is there any proof similar to Gen. Johnson’s return? No. What sense does it make here? Again big NO. It is not an attempt to confiscate South’s oil again as usual or a declaration of economic war on South Sudan?

                I’ m not neither personally surprised nor concerned by this impromptu decision taken out of frustration and continued unpredictability since June 1989. This is the typical behavior of a frustrated leader, not knowing: how resolve its internal conflict, how to transform his country democratically for the sake of peace and freedom, and how to implement agreements.

                  What Khartoum has, is only good track record of dishonoring agreements since 1972.
                  President Omer Hassan Al-Bashir believes only in his useless military campaign which often failed Khartoum to win any war but resulted in partitioning the old Sudan for the sake of freedom and as a result triggered other rebellions because of continued political and economic marginalization of areas in the North.

                    A reliable source says if President Omer Hassan Al-Bashir looks at maps of two separate Sudan (once the biggest country in Africa but ruled “only” by successive Islamic regimes), he gets mad and madder; that is why he unpredictably and frustratingly make such emotional decision on baseless grounds.

                      However, the two Sudans are interdependent, can only live as good neighbors peacefully till borders are completely demarcated but can never get back as one country through direct/indirect military campaigns of President Omer Al-Bashir and his cronies or by staging economic sabotage that affects both countries currently.

                        The question that should be asked is why Khartoum does not even realize its continued failure to fool his friends in the AU/Middle East/international community about finding realistic political solution to its internal conflict and at the same time keeps blaming Sudan who is already an independent nation but not manufacturing any weapons or ammunition for useless military campaigns?

    @Dumez Davis, we say in Dinka that a ’Hyena says, even he who broke my hip can receive justice from me’, your comments are perfect. I think those who’re focused for better would absorb them for better. How can we address our common problem when all we do is position ourselves on our tribal lines and begin to attack one another. A good nation is where citizens have mutual respect for one another.
