On September 17, Karti told reporters upon his arrival at Khartoum airport from Cairo where he attended the summit of Arab foreign ministers that the LAS was going to hold a conference on development projects in southern Sudan.

Karti revealed that the conference had been named ‘Juba 2’ and would be launched in Bahrain on 25 November this year, adding that efforts to organize the conference were already underway.

Karti further said that the Arab league had affirmed support for Sudan’s unity and appealed to all Arab countries to support Sudan in order to enable it to surmount the challenges ahead.

The minister was keen to point out that the LAS was already conducting feasibility studies for development projects in southern Sudan, in addition to the projects it has already implemented.

Karti also said that Sudan had invited Arab countries to participate in a conference on the development of eastern Sudan.

    it is not going to be about development. the so call League of Arab states convention is about how they should assist their brother north sudan when war erupted again, and i don’t know whether sub sahran african countries are keen enough to study this last trick against southern sudan interest by all arab states. may be this time around, the war is going to be between Africa of sub sahara countries and arab nations.

    Dear brothers in the South,

    My question is and and it will be;which development are they going to talk about yet we are going to separate soon very soon.Do they want to play a trick on us again? Oh my dear Arabs,if you have nothing to do or to say;then you have to go to the mosque to pray than worsting your time for nothing.This is not the right time for you to crack your minds for development of Southern Sudan.Where had you been when the war broke out in 1983? Shame on whoever going to be the chairman or chairwoman of the meeting which is going to talk place.

    Dear Southerners.

    The Arab league are now organizing them to fight us,what type of development project they are talking about in this few remaining days?.Let us be prepared otherwise!GOSS should notices this from now,since we know very well the present foreign minister in Khartoum is the pure member of Osama Bin Ladin Karti,but we will witness because the case of the south Sudan if presented infront of the Almighty God for judgement we will win. Our Late Hero Dr John Garang has stated this in one of his statement to the southerners outside the country.
