Respect UNSC resolution, Ki-Moon tells the two Sudans


By Julius N. Uma

May 10, 2012 (JUBA) - The United Nations Secretary General has reiterated calls for both Sudan and South Sudan to disengage, resume post-independence negotiations and immediately establish the Joint Border Verification Monitoring Mechanism as per the 2 May UN Security Council resolution.

Addressing the UN General Assembly on the on-going tension between Sudan and South Sudan on Wednesday, Ban Ki Moon, acknowledged South Sudan’s withdrawal of its forces from the disputed oil-rich Heglig region, but expressed concerns over accusation of aggression stemming from both nations.

South Sudan army’s temporary occupation of Heglig attracted widespread criticism, with the UN chief describing it as “illegal” and calling for their immediate withdrawal.

“Addressing internal dynamics within both nations is also critical to consolidating peace between them,” Ki Moon said in a statement.

The Government of Sudan, he emphasised, must address legitimate political and economic aspirations of its people in Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile, where humanitarian access should be immediately granted and a cessation of hostilities negotiated.

The leadership of Sudan’s ruling National Congress Party (NCP) on Wednesday announced it was strongly opposed to the UN Security Council (UNSC) resolution regarding negotiations with the rebel Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N).

Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) has been battling SPLM-N in the border states of Blue Nile and South Kordofan since last year, with each side blaming the other for initiating the fighting.

A framework agreement brokered in June 2011, prior to the outbreak of the conflict in Blue Nile state three months later, by the head of the African Union High-Level Implementation Panel on Sudan (AUHIP) has not yielded any positive outcomes.

Meanwhile, the UN Secretary General also urged South Sudan government to address grievances behind inter-communal violence and “gain the full trust of its population.”

"It is imperative that both sides stop any and all warfare by proxy, before it becomes too late," Ki Moon said, further pledging the UN’s firm commitment to assist both nations in improving relations capable of consolidating durable peace.

      Why Ban Ki Moon is fearing to tell Omer Bashir or Khartoum Govt that you are wrong than beating around the bush.
      Ban Ki Moon should come physically to witness by himself what Khartoum are doing on the new Nation,by bombarding it with his old model aircraft.

        Ban Ki Moon is friended with Khartoum Goverment,you saw the way he urged South Sudan to pullout it’s forces from Heglig while he doesn’t even know where Heglig lay at.UNSC has also warned the two Sudans to cease fighting with sanction threat,now do UNSC condemn Khartoum Goverment for violating UNSC by bombarding South Sudan civilians within their own territories?of course not.FUCK Moon.

    Ki moon should not act like a fool. Why is he still asking the two countries while S. Sudan has already withdrawn from all the disputed areas like panthou, Abyei,and the rest of the areas? Why not ask those crimnals of khartoum? Is this man not a deaf? Does he understands what he uses to say?

        You hypocrytical Moon. South Sudan has been aggressed, and you turn a deaf ear. When South Sudan retaliates, you buzz like a bee, and mosquitos buzz in unison. What kind of world do we live in, Moon? We are not going to liseten to you again. To hell, with you and we will be like Israel to fend ourselves just as we had for the past 40 yrs.

    Moon-ki is an idiot if he truly believes south sudan can control rebels in the north.
    Even if it is true South Sudan is aiding rebels, if aid stops they can receive help from many countries.
    Over the years rebels in Sudan have been supported by Uganda, Kenya, Israel, Chad, etc.
    Even people in opposition may support rebels. They cannot blame the south for everything.

    USA, FRANCE and UK must be stopped by the IC & UN not to abuse the role of law in the name of their selective Human Rights. Human Rights for USA, FRANCE and UK are to foster their status as masters while Africans must be their slaves. They choose the satanic “Master-Slave system” to control the world and its resources.

        USA has committed many crimes related to genocides, torture and violation of human rights in Vietnam, Korea, Grenada, Somalia, Afangistan, Iraq etc. are true examples of locations where the superpower USA has committed unlimited war crimes against humankind. Moreover USA has destroyed and polluted the environments in all countries of the earth.

    USA, FRANCE and UK are planning to brush the feelings of the peoples of SUDAN and Darfur under the carpet. Their ignorance and arrogance will not let them understand the cultural, social, ethnic and linguistic diversity of Darfur and Sudan.

    Ki-Moon, what a character of a person. How did you become so call Secretary General of UN? Bashire hasn’t stop bombing RSS or killing Fur & Nubian and these are not a fancy allegation. These are facts that Khartoum has continued to bombed RSS and you dare talking about inter-communal violent, shame on you. At least have little respect for humanity sake.

    Come on Mr. Ki Moon, why are you still urging the two Sudans (Sudan & South Sudan) to earn hostilities. What is the meaning of Panthou withdrawal?, What is the meaning of South Police Withdrawal from Abyei?. Wha is the meaning of SAP Continued aerial incursions in to South Sudan territories?

    Why don’t you frankly confront Albashit and tell him to end Aerial bombardment in South Sudan

    south sudanese brothers, I think Ki Moon is just reading out reports being prepared to him by some anti S. Sudanese elements within UN system. Same thing was the case when he just stand up and condamn S. Sudan over Panthou issue. we need to find out who are those. Ban, if this is not true, then either you hate S. Sudan or you are totally ignorant of history and what is happening on ground.

    Mr. Moon,

    Its so painful to read Mr. Moon statement. North Sudan is the aggressor in every level. United Nations is being runs by cowards/incompetence. Mr. Moon is a weak leader, and the middle east thugs are running the United Nations. Mr. Moon sounds so pathetic. Does United Nation know Khartoum is in business of killing people. Africans leader are bought by the Arabs, accept south Sudan.

      - khartoum invade abyei and other southern teritories
      - khartoum was bombing south citizens and up to now after UNSC resolution
