April 27, 2012 (KHARTOUM) – Two Sudanese officials accused South Sudan on Friday of failing to govern its territories and attempting to export its problems to the north.

Ahmad Haroun, the governor of South Kordofan State on the borders with South Sudan, said in an interview with Sudan radio that the government in Juba had neglected southern citizens, citing reports of inter-communal violence in South Sudan.

In order to escape its own problems and tighten grip on internal front, Haroun said, the government of South Sudan portrayed the north as an enemy and a threat to their independence.

Speaking on the same program, Sudan’s defence minister urged the international community to pay attention to southern citizens who, he said, are suffering from poverty and starvation as its government continues to direct all of resources “to execute war agendas targeting the government in Khartoum.”

“What does an ordinary southern citizen benefit from toppling the regime in Khartoum?” he asked before accusing Israel of providing military support to Juba.

Hussein reiterated Khartoum’s accusations that Juba was supporting “mercenaries” to fight on its behalf, in reference to Darfur rebel groups and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army North (SPLM-N).

South Sudan denies any links with Sudanese rebel and also accuses Khartoum of supporting rebels on southern territories.

Sudan and South Sudan are both facing an economic crisis due to the repercussions of their dispute over oil exports.

The already underdeveloped south lost over 90 percent of revenues when it shut down oil production in February while Khartoum’s already strained situation is made worse by the disruption of oil pumped from Heglig area following its brief occupation by South Sudan two weeks ago.

    Abdel Raheem Muhammad Hussein, you need to feel sorry about large number of northerners flew to Kenya for humanitarians assistance. They fear for what so-called National Criminal Party that cause so much problems to its Citizens. So watch your own hands first before thinking about watching our hands.

      You have to feed your people first before thinking to topple government of North Sudan. Poor southerners really are in need for help. Exporting good type of governance is nice thing; however SPLM failure type of governance cannot be exported. Ruling south Sudan for more than 6 years, SPLM is moving from a failure to another.

    Mr. so called defense Minister of Sudan; Hussien,
    The whole Heglig/Panthou disaster burdened by Khartoum was a result of your mistake of walking out of Addis ababa Peace talk. This is not the 1972 peace agreement. Well next time, dont make the same mistake again of walking out of peace talk and Plus, SOUTH SUDAN is not CHAD. even if you offer 72 women to president kiir like you did to Chadian pres

    • 28 April 2012 16:59, by Deng

      dent, nothing will change South Sudan stands. We are not fake African like Chadians. If we say no, we mean NO. If we say that we do not support SPLA North, we mean to stick to it. Only solution to your internal conflict is to obey the terms of the CPA and Darfur conflict settlement.

    ’export its problem to the north’? south sudan is less than a year old and the problem within sudan is been there before south sudan was born. if it wasn’t becuase of the problem within the united sudan ,southern sudanese wouldn’t have choosen seperation over unity.sudan, the source of refugee,could not handle its population ,instead send them out of country for the world to handle.
