Sudan’s Bashir heads to Juba: SUNA


January 5, 2014 (KHARTOUM) – The Sudanese president, Omer Hassan Al-Bashir left Khartoum for Juba on Monday to hold talks with his southern counterpart, Salva Kiir on the current political crisis, the state news agency said.

Bashir, according to SUNA, is accompanied by his defence minister Abdel Rahim Hussein, foreign minister Ali Karti, oil minister Makawi Mohamed Awad, presidential affairs minister Salah Wansi and director of security and intelligence Mohamed Atta.

Last month, clashes erupted in South Sudan with fighting among a group of soldiers in the capital, Juba. The violence quickly spread to several states, cleaving the nation along the ethnic fault line of rebel leader Riek Machar’s Nuer and President Salva Kiir’s Dinka.

The pro-government Ashorooq TV reported that sources in South Sudan’s foreign ministry affirmed Bashir’s visit to Juba on Monday to meet with his South Sudanese counterpart, saying that talks between the two leaders would mainly complement the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) mediation efforts.

The IGAD is attempting to broker a deal to end weeks of conflict that has killed over 1,000 people and forced tens of thousands to flee their home.

Delegations of the two conflicting sides have held the first round of face-to-face talks in Addis Ababa on Sunday.

South Sudan’s foreign minister Barnaba Marial Benjamin was to visit Khartoum on Monday, but cancelled the planned trip due to the Sudanese president’s visit.

      One can see the diff btwn Kirr and Riek here. Bashier is getting fruitful deal abt ss oil with Dr. Riek but he uses with Kirr who doesn’t care abt ss pple he will get all he demand as b4 he never missed what he demand from Kirr. So as ms. Kirr bring in new man in person of Bashier other will go out aka M7. What a shame to be rule by that person?

      I am worried for the safety of Dr. Riak Machar with his senior oposition figures, the deal taking place in Juba now today will have a great impact on Dr. Riak Machara in the few coming days.

    Kiir or Machar doesn’t matter pple are dying in hundreds.Forget about the figure given by Sudan Tribune! That was only on the first day.The death toll is frightening!Machar has the right to be president as anyother S.Sudanese.But, he can never be president by force or through war.This is going to be endless war.Dinka, small or large can never be ignored and will never accept to be defeated!

      I hate to see fake Arab pretending to be a man of peace. You and your uncles killed 2 million people in South Sudan. You are your uncles are terrorists who train young people to blow up themselves and take away the life of innocent people in the name of Allah. Leave us alone fake Arab and find (GATHA JAMARA) to enjoy it.

        South Sudan,
        As usual you failed to read what lies between the lines. Sudan will never help Machar or whoever else to topple an elected Govt. in SS. Forget about politics and previous civil war, both Dinka and Nuer are our brothers and sisters, we want them to live in peace. Since, we are familiar with the geopolitics and topography of SS certainly, Bashir is qualified to resolve this issue.

          It is shame for Bashier to copy m7 tactics of killing powerful brothers so that he install poppet leaders in the region. How abt when they need to confront other regions who will help him substantially? We all know Dr. Riek n other 11 in the hand of "incompetent leader in juba are amongst the best leaders in Africa. God safe them!!!

        Mohamed Ali is right to inform you about the truth, this is not a game of personality betwn Bashir, M7 and Salva Kiir but about the people of South Sudan. those who have died are now upto 7,590 soldiers and innocent civil. but because of your ignorance you are believing false report of UN that say 1000 people. shame on primitive nation.
        this is really senseless war with no objectives.

      Basher is highly welcome to teach folish Kiir how to swept a wick man from people’s sight.
      He (Kiir) doesn’t stick on presidential degrees and than was why several key leaders rebel against him.
      Whatever Basher declared comes to action positively, but whatever Kiir declared cuases everyone sneer at him.
      If he agreed for "join force" Machar will shake his troop.

    Sudan official position is like AU & IGAD, Mr Kiir represents the legitimate government in S Sudan and toppling his government by force will never be accepted, calling for both sides to stop this war immediately and engage yourself in peace talking!
    It’s true this conflict is over power but unfortunately it took immediately its power from tribalism which is deeply

      rooted in S Sudan
      Dinka & Nuer are considered to be performing 50% or a bit more of the population in S Sudan hence the future of S Sudan cannot be determined without them and both have historically ties and relationship with people in the north of Sudan therefore Khartoum government made it very clear from day one that they will never point their gun to Dinka or Nuer

        it is unbelievable that pple like u are missing the point here. The war is not abt the power alone. For Kirr yes it is power but for Machar it is abt surviving at the hand of Kirr but what abt the thousands of Nuer massacred in Juba last month, what do u think the war mean to their relatives?
        It is unbelievable Bashier, M7 n SRF on same side against the Nuer n South Sudanese!

          Don’t forget Machar and his white army massacred thousand of Dinka in 1991. if Dinka forgives Nuer and accepted Machar as their VP , then Nuer should do the same. Sudan is not siding any party and don’t intend to buy a free enmity with Nuer or Dinka. Moreover, many Nuers support Kiir and many Dinkas support Machar.

            Don’t forget Machar and his white army massacred around 30,000 Dinkas in 1991. If Dinka forgives Nuer and accepted Machar as their VP , then Nuer should do the same. Sudan is not siding any party and don’t intend to buy a free enmity with Nuer or Dinka. Moreover, many Nuers support Kiir and many Dinkas support Machar.

              Don’t be naive to buy into cheap policy of attaching 1991 Bor attack by Lou to Dr. Riek. Did u every asked yourself why Gajaak massacres by Dr. Garang in 1980s are not speak off by Gajaak n other Nuer? It is becoze of patriotism. We have to leave our past behind for us to live peaceful pple. But we have to prevent it frm repeating itself. U shld not massacre Nuer now becoze of 1991

        The news that’s coming from Bentiu and Unity State where Machar is controlling that area, the news shows that SRF (Darfourian rebels & SPLA-N) are allying with Machar rebellion and fighting with them SPLA, Machar allowed them to mobilize and rearrange their militia inside Unity State and offered them a safe haven to attack SAF and terrorize

          the innocent civilians in S Kordofan!
          Machar is using them as a pressure tool against Khartoum, he desperately needs support from Khartoum as the people over there at the edge of starvation, he needs more weapons more ammunition, more over, he wants to secure his back and gets assurance from Khartoum not to surprise him and attack him from behind!

            I think Machar is playing with fire by harboring SRF, he could easily outrage Sudan and Sudan could easily attack him from behind and clear off Unity State from his troop, he experienced this before when he outraged Khartoum and then Khartoum and Paulino Matip allied together and launched a powerful attack against his troop and chased him away from oil fields in Unity

              Machar needs to think wisely and behave rationally and keeps Khartoum out of this conflict, he shouldn’t drag Khartoum foot in this war otherwise he will end up paying high price as he did before after signing Khartoum peace agreement with Sudan government in 1997 and then started to play dirty game with Khartoum!!

        I understand your point of view but I just don’t trust global media whatsoever. as soon as they hear sudan they will blame us. just look how jewish media exaggerated and lied about darfur from 10,000 to 300,000. the truth is, it doesn’t matter to us who’s in office the only thing which matters is the oil so we should stay out as much as we could.
