June 10, 2013 (JUBA) - South Sudan leader, Salva Kiir on Monday questioned the credibility of the African Union (AU), saying the continental body failed to take the lead in resolving its current oil row with neighbouring Sudan.

Kiir said the 54-member body specifically failed to impose its own recommendations as per its communique, which stipulated that both countries must resolve their differences according a designated time frame before any unilateral decision can be made.

“This latest turn of events brings into question the credibility of the African Union mediators but we remain optimistic that they will intervene accordingly”, Kiir told reporters in the capital, Juba.

"We urge both regional and international governments to diplomatically engage with Sudan in order to protect the lives of the citizens of both nations and to encourage Sudan to engage in peaceful dialogue with their internal rebellion," he added.

In September last year, Sudan and South Sudan signed a series of cooperation agreements, which covered oil, citizenship rights, security issues, banking, and border trade, among others.

On 25 January, at the AU Peace and Security Council (PSC), convening during the AU Summit in Addis Ababa, adopted a communiqué on Sudan-South Sudan, which among others, stressed the need for he two countries to unconditional implement the 27 September 2012 agreements.

But while Kiir and his Sudan counterpart Omer Hassan Al-Bashir met on the margins of the AU Summit on 27 January, the two failed to make progress on how to implement the 27 September agreements.

Meanwhile, the South Sudanese leader said his government had still not received any official notification from the government of neighbouring Sudan despite its president threatening block its oil flow to export markets.

He warned that any attempt to block the flow of oil to international markets would undermine implementation of a cooperation agreement signed by both leaders in September 2012 as part of attempts to resolve a number of ongoing disputes over post-secession issues.

The South Sudanese president was forced to call an emergency cabinet meeting on Sunday following remarks made by Bashir, in which he ordered his oil minister, Awad al-Jaz, to block the flow of South Sudan’s crude oil to international markets via Sudanese pipelines.

Bashir’s announcement on Saturday came in response to allegations that the new nation supports Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF) rebels fighting Khartoum on multiple fronts.

Kiir said his government had been relying on media reports for information, following the threatened shut down, but had yet to receive any further communication from its northern neighbour on the matter.

“We are reading these statements and orders to block the oil flow from the media, but the oil continues to flow. Sudan cannot just decide to stop the flow. There are certain things and procedures to be followed because it involves other stakeholders. Closing it abruptly will undermine implementation of the cooperation of the agreement”, Kiir told journalists on Monday.

According to the cooperation agreement, however, Khartoum has to inform Juba two months in advance before it can take any decision to shutdown its oil pipelines.

It will be a huge setback, analysts argue, to the agreements brokered by African Union mediation team, should Sudan implement its plan to shut the oil pipeline.

KIIR DENIES REBEL SUPPORT

Meanwhile, the South Sudan leader denied his government was providing support to the SRF – a coalition of Sudanese rebel groups fighting to topple the Bashir regime in the war-ravaged region of Darfur and in the two border states of Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile.

“It is not true that we support these groups. Where do we get these facilities when there are a lot of demands and needs to provide basic services to our people? Our people need roads to link them. They need health service. If we have these facilities we will channel them [in]to improving the lives of our people. We will not buy weapons to other armed any other groups”, said Kiir.

He maintained his government was still committed to fully implementing the cooperation agreements, despite ongoing disagreements, saying ultimately it was in the best interests of the two countries to live in peace and develop better relations.

“We are committed to implementing the cooperation [agreements] so that we build mutual trust and live in the two viable states in pursuit of mutual benefits. This is what we are after. We are not after anything that will destabilise any of our neighbours, including the Republic of Sudan”, he said.

“NO BENEFITS FOR WAR”

The former rebel commander turned politician, who went on to become president after the South gained independence in July 2011, called on South Sudanese people to remain calm and exhibit self-control despite provocative remarks from his Sudanese counterpart and members of his administration.

He also reiterated his government’s commitment to peaceful dialogue.

“While president al-Bashir has declared jihad (holy war) and is mobilising for war, I maintain my pledge to you and the world that I will not take the people of South Sudan unnecessarily back to a state of war. I therefore call you to remain calm and be patient as we work with the African Union (AU) to resolve this impasse with Sudan”, Kiir told reporters.

"There are no benefits for war. We know it. This aggressive attitude of Khartoum is not new and we should not be surprised," he stressed.

      Brave H.E Gen. Pres. Salva Kiir has been never called a coward during 21-year fist civil war. The coward person is your Dr. Defector Riek Machar who defected for the sake of food in khartoum. Greater Equatorians like Mzee Ali Gbutala, Samuel Abu John and many more remained loyal to SPLA til Arabs and all defectors surrendered to SPLA, Dr. Defector Riek Machar is among them. Shut up!

        The incompetent president of the "no agenda" cabinet has run out of ideas and looked gloomy on TV. If I were a Gogrialian I would wisely advise him to resign and try a free life far from politics and complicated governance. Otherwise, it will be too late for him.

                  No answer at all because the goal was to separate the south and never to build a country, that explains clearly why southerners succeeded in separating the south with 98% votes in favor of the separation and only 2% achievement in building a country and nation, they failed and they will continue to fail unfortunately and their ongoing interfering in Sudan issues shows

                    clearly that they’re in great conflict with themselves about their identity and their internal psychological feeling pushes them hard to Sudan belonging and give themselves the right to interfere in Sudan issues because they still believe in their minds that they’re still belonging to it, unfortunately, that what their mindset for and now they behave accordingly!!

                      Sudan problem was never and will never be with southerners ordinary people but the real problem lies on elites southerners who are leading the south now and who really led southerners to separate from north and failed to build them a country but stole their money during the daylight!!

          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.

                        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.

    I believe that Sudan is doing all that to make us loose our self control and go back to war, which I don’t think will happen. The report says “The former rebel commander turned politician”, which is not bad, but he must learn to play politics the right way especially when it comes to Jalaba. History has shown us that Jalaba are not trustworthy.
