Sudan, S. Sudan sign agreement on border demarcation


October 22, 2019 (KHARTOUM) - The Joint Technical Committee for Border Demarcation (JTCB) between Sudan and South Sudan on Tuesday signed an agreement on the full delimitation of the joint border parts between the two neighbouring nations.

The agreement, SUNA reported, was signed by Maj. Gen. Al-Amin Mohamed Bannaga on behalf of the Sudanese government while Ambassador Darios Garang Woul inked it on behalf of South Sudan.

The JTCB, with the support of the African Union Border Programme (AUBP), began its meetings in Sudan’s capital, Khartoum on October 13.

The committee, during its meetings conducted between October 13-22, prepared full detailed delimitation of the coordinates in the agreed-upon sectors on the borderline and also made an Atlas on the maps, documents and reference documents, which it has relied on in the delimitation of the explored and unexplored sectors.

Meanwhile, the joint technical committee is expected to complete its work by including the disputed areas alongside the claimed zones, according to the order that was established by the agreement on the border issues signed between the two countries.

The joint border demarcation committee is expected to submit its work in November to the joint border commission for ratification.

In December 2017, the JTCB developed a detailed report on the agreed and contested points of the three sectors along the borderline as well as the precise coordinates of all border points.

The claimed and disputed areas on the 2000km border between Sudan and South Sudan include Abyei, 14-Mile area, Joudat Al-Fakhar, Jebel al-Migainais, Kaka, and Kafia Kingi enclave (Hofrat al-Nahas).

    Border demarcation,

    If Garang Wuol signed those boundaries blindly, so, the war for that would be fought by Mathaing Anyoor alone since other tribes have no much borders with Sudan.

      Midit Mitot,

      63 tribes of South Sudan never united to fight a single war. Any tribe in South Sudan which instigate war and thinks other tribes of South Sudan will join them are dreaming. For our border with Sudan, we will put down our feet and do it alone like the way we did 22 years with Sudan.

      Ok if that’s true than why do you care so much? Fuck off and mind your own business. Worry about the nier getting fucked over by floods and not the dinka and their border with sudan dumbass.

      By the way the shilluk would also fight since sudan also occupies some of their land.
