S. Sudan’s Pagan says Khartoum hampers security talks, returns to Juba for consultations


July 26, 2012 (Addis Ababa) - South Sudan’s chief negotiator, before departing for Juba, accused Sudan of declining to adopt the map proposed by the African Union (AU) mediation team to implement a buffer zone on the common border, with less than a week to the 2 August deadline set by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).

Spokesperson for Sudan’s negotiating team Mutrif Sidiq told reporters that the two delegations had agreed on 80% of the security arrangements, expressing hope they can overcome the remaining points very soon. However, he warned that Sudan wanted to resolve the issue of four regions occupied by South Sudanese army including Mile 14.

Sudan kept rejecting any compromise over a disputed area called Mile 14 the mediation considers it as a disputed areas on the common border and included it in a buffer zone that the parties should implement before the 2 August.

Pagan Amum, South Sudan’s chief negotiator told reporters, before leaving for the venue of the peace talks in Addis Ababa, that President Salva Kiir summoned him and the defence minister John Kong Nyuon, for consultations on the talks.

He pointed out that Sudan’s refusal to endorse the implementation of the buffer is a clear breach to the United Nation (UN) resolution 2046.

Pagan Amum further said his country has declared a cessation of hostilities and unconditionally accepted the map proposed by the AU High Level Implementation Panel (AUHIP) to establish, without further delay, the Safe Demilitarized Buffer Zone (SDBZ), and immediately activate all security mechanisms.

The two countries, under the facilitation of AUHIP, are engaged in post-secession talks on issues such as border and security, the economy, oil, citizenship status and the disputed Abyei region.

However, in the African Union road map and the UN resolution Sudan reaffirm that the use of the AUHIP 2011 Map to establish the SDBZ and to implement the associated security agreements, in no way, prejudices the final settlement of any outstanding disputed and claimed areas or the demarcation of the boundary.

Sudan and South Sudan, on Thursday, began direct talks on the oil dispute for the first time since the latter shut down its oil production early this year. The two nations, the UNSC has warned, risk facing sanctions should they fail to strike a comprehensive deal.

    Khartoum always take about security talk be solve first but in which way? if they refuse the UN proposal about the buffer zone then this is a clear hidden agenda for Jallaba.They refuse Abyei referendum and administrative,UN and South must notice that Jallaba when battle but they will not endure it if it erupted. They are only for oil!. They must leave Panthou and Abyei completely.

    The only things that Khartoum’s NIF regime wants are; for South Sudan abandoning its Lands to the North and disarm SPLM-N. NIF regime has sercured Qatar as new source of weapon and money. Qatar has shipped 2 Tanks for NIF to fight South, SPLM-N and Street demonstrators so they have a reason to hamper security talks.

      We all know that Qatar, saudia, gulf kingdoms and their backer at the UN, the UK of OLD, are North Sudan advisers and suppliers of weapons.the arabian kingdoms are main british investors and oil suppliers and in turn are given protection in so-called UN P5+1, to help their allies project their arabs project in the sudan and to gain the vast land and water on the Nile Bank, trust me!

        Honestly i would make a research on this, and this is why i always said that there is no need of having some embassies here in Juba, Museveni said and warned Africans that they should be keen in choosing investors. thx Tutbol for such a good insight.

          Guys, it is true that dozens of countries at the UN has been lobbied heavenly and hence they are against south Sudan. They refusal to condemn Khartoum explain their hostility toward south Sudan. Yes, these countries you have mentioned are behind our sufferings.

            You have a huge task to deliver peace and you have shown it that you can try to do it. But don’t overestimate the dangers pose by the absence of the same. Talk, talk....

            Compromise for the sake of peace is important such that the two camps could reach an agreement. No return to war, under the cow boy

        Viper is a nuer, and the same with Wang. Omoni is from peaceful people called Equatorians.

        Viper (Gatwech) is notorious, shiting around everywhere, especially mad with Bor people because to him these people are stopping their criminal called Machar from power.

        Viper, don’t talk on behalf of others, or try to enlist their anger against certain people.

Thanks God that they refused to take that deal, I personally feels relieved from such a compromise.
