South Sudan will retake Heglig if Khartoum’s attacks continue - Machar


April 23, 2012 (JUBA) - South Sudan’s vice president Riek Machar said Monday that South Sudan was for a peaceful resolution to the border conflict with neighbouring Sudan but warned that should Khartoum continue with its acts of aggression, Juba will respond in kind.

The South Sudanese army (SPLA) pulled out of the contested oil region of Heglig on Friday having occupied the area for 10 days amid international condemnation. However, Khartoum have claimed that in fact the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) forced the SPLA to pull out of the area killing over 1,000 of their soldiers. This figure is denied by Juba.

According to Juba, SAF then carried out ground attacks inside South Sudan and launched an aerial bombardment of Unity State including the capital Bentiu. Witnesses say three people including young boy were killed in the attack.

Machar said that if SAF’s attacks on South Sudan continued the country, which only seceded from Sudan in July last year, would be forced to recapture Heglig by force.

He explained that South Sudan was willing to resolve the outstanding post-independence issues peacefully including the demarcation of the borders between the two countries.

Negotiations between the two sides were called off by Khartoum earlier this month after the Heglig fighting erupted, scuppering deals that was to be signed by the countries presidents on citizenship and security issues.

Sudanese president Omar Al-Bashir has said last week that he intends to remove the ruling Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) from power in Juba and his First Vice President Ali Osman Taha said that talks would not resume anytime soon suggesting that his government would not be able to negotiate with the SPLM.

On a visit to Heglig on Monday Bashir ruled out talks with South Sudan.

"We will not negotiate with the South’s government, because they don’t understand anything but the language of the gun and ammunition," Reuters reported Bashir as saying.

According to AFP news agency Kamal Marouf, a Sudanese military commander, said that SAF killed 1,000 SPLA soldiers in process of retaking Heglig. AFP’s correspondent said the number of dead bodies wearing SPLA military uniforms was "uncountable".

Sudanese state TV reported that Bashir told Sudanese troops in the area that Heglig’s the vultures "have been well fed and are relaxing in the shade under the trees".

However, South Sudan’s Information Minister, Barnaba Marial Benjamin, denied the figures of casualties in statements to the BBC. He claimed that "not even a single SPLA soldier" had been killed.

Machar said that if Khartoum had chosen war and the international community could not restrain it, Juba was capable of defending itself militarily and should retake Heglig by force as well as liberate the other occupied territories across the 1,800 kilometer north-south border.

The two sides were unable to agree on the border during the six year peace deal that ended in July last year when South Sudan became independent. However, many parts of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement have not been implemented and post-partition issues including how much Juba should pay Khartoum to export southern crude through Sudan’s infrastructure.

Bashir said, after South Sudan’s occupation of Heglig, that he would no longer allow South Sudan’s oil to pass through Sudan. Khartoum needs the revenue, however, to aide its struggling economy.

In other comments last week Bashir described the SPLM government as "insects" that needed to be crushed vowing to teach the nine-month-old country a lesson.

According to Juba SAF attacked the SPLA as it was withdrawing from the area.

Machar criticised the international community for forcing South Sudan to unconditionally withdraw its forces from Heglig without first securing a ceasefire with Sudan.

In direct reference to President Bashir’s recent rhetoric Machar, while addressing a large jubilant crowd in Juba on Sunday, said Bashir’s forces ran away from South Sudan’s "insects" in Heglig despite his aerial bombardments.

On a different occasion Machar revealed that SAF’s 25,000 troops who were amassed to defend Heglig town and surrounding oilfields were dislodged from the area by the SPLA on April 10. That the Sudanese military were so easily forced out of Heglig and were prevented from retaking it for over a week was a major embarrassment to Khartoum.

SPLA head of information, Brig. Gen. Malaak Ayuen, said South Sudan’s army had captured over 120 military vehicles including a number of tanks from Khartoum’s forces during their 10-day confrontation.

Machar further added that the SPLA repulsed SAF’s attempt on Saturday to capture the SPLA’s position in Teshwin south of Heglig.

The SAF forces, he said, were driven back to Heglig, but the SPLA did not get the order to re-enter the town and therefore returned to their previous position in Teshwin.

He explained that Heglig/Panthou, like the other locations occupied by Khartoum along the yet-to-be-demarcated border, belong to South Sudan.

“If it comes to war, we will retake Heglig and liberate our lands and demarcate the borders,” he said.

      I guess Bashiir made his best pick by choosing not to negotiate with the South. The choice will favor his people in the next coming weeks. I was laughing my rear off yesterday when I heard his advisor describing something as ’ribil’ (rebels) in a live interview with aljeera. The humantarian person choked him to the point where his English turned into Arabic after his pack of lies evaporated.

    I think the SAF should continue to bomb the South until those rulers or the people of the south come to their senses. What is the point of retaking Heigilig? Machar should do his homework very well. What is required are good diplomatic moves and proper air defence systems not nonsensical rhetorics. If you cannot defend your airspace or your territory what is the point of starting a sensiless war?

        Afroarabian (black fake Arab). Arabic is used on SSTV, but as soon as we’re done with destroying you it will probably be English. South Sudan is a tribally diverse area, and most citizens keep their motherlanguage to heart but if it comes to communicating with other tribes English/Arabic is there. This is normal in African countries, most countries use either English, French, Portuguese or Arabic.

                Khartoum government is 60 years old --- Regardless of what happen, Bashir government had been demoralized by a a country which is less that a one year old. Regardless of your air power your government is not winning. As long Bashir is run your government you’re all doom for serious failure. Bashir is the world’s most wanted criminal dead or alive.

South never appreciated the fact that sudan gave them a nation, never appreciated that sudan was the first country in the world to recognise s.sudan, never appreciated the good hand when it was handed to you. Calling us theives for charing you for our infrastructure, as if you have the right? telling us how much we..

      should charge for our infrastructure.. as if you have the right? support rebels to disrupt the nation.. as if you have the right? S.Sudan leadership is pathatic, no reasoning skills, no intelligence, no vision.. taking heglig was the third worst decision in the history of s.sudan, leaving heglig is the second worst decision and going to war with sudan is ultimately the worst decision s.sudan will

        ever make. Low moral, poor economy, corrpution, spending money on things you shouldn’t, not spending money on things you should.. Horrible Horrible government.. and now you choose war? you had a blank page in the world, an oppurtunity to be a great nation, now you defined yourself as foolish, silly, corrput, aggressive nation that has no business being a country. Just sad.

          Corrector.You had no where to go.It was a forceful and a pressure to accept.If you didn’t accept it,we would kill all of you.Saf is a coward army composed of hopeless people who can never resisst the Southern army the SPLA!

      I don’t think is right to say South Sudan should appreciate the North for giving a nation or whatever..Who gave the North the authority to give somebody a nation or to receive appreciation. This is same thinking that is causing problems..assuming that you are superior and another inferior. Please change you mind set.

      peace keeper,

      You claimed to be a college mate with Dr. Machar. Well if you are really a peace maker, advise Bashir to stop his stupid provocations, otherwise Dr. Machar’s forces will not only shoot his leg again like what happened in Mayom in 1980s but will also arrest him and hand him over to ICC.
      Don’t temper with Dr. Machar or he will say enough is enough and you die....

    We’re at war with arabized Nubian gov’t. Which means, the ball is on our Court, either to confront these rats in warfields or wait for one-sided international community for our rescue after our dead bodies.

    The VP is absolutely correct in his speech, I wish I could understand he what was say. He speak English or let someone Translation alright, however, it’s good to hear from the horse’s mouth. Now is the time for all the good men to come to aid of their country.

    So, were is James Okuk, Lam Akol, and Justin Ambago?., their silent is deafening. South need all the help it can get.
