Bashir says Sudan has no more concessions to offer Juba


February 10, 2013 (KHARTOUM) – The Sudanese president Omer Hassan al-Bashir has toughened his stance toward his country’s ongoing post-secession negotiations with South Sudan saying that they have no more concessions to offer.

In remarks at a hospital inauguration in Khartoum, Bashir stressed that previous agreements signed with Juba are not subject to revisions or change and they must be implemented as signed.

"We handed the South [Sudanese] a fully sovereign state but rather than focus on building their state they have become devoted to creating conflicts," the Sudanese president said.

"We are advocates of peace but peace will not be at any cost. We have given everything and we do not have anything new to offer" Bashir added.

The two countries have been negotiating for years over issues such as borders, Abyei, oil and citizenship with little progress despite regional and international pressure.

Last September they signed a number of cooperation deals that would allow for resumption of oil exports from landlocked South Sudan through Sudan’s pipelines.

But Sudan is insisting that security arrangements be agreed upon and that Juba halts its alleged support to anti-Khartoum rebels before it allows oil exports to flow again through its territory.

Khartoum has long accused South Sudan of supporting the Sudan People Liberation Movement North (SPLM-N) insurgents fighting in two Sudanese states bordering South Sudan - as well as other rebels in the western Darfur region. Juba denies the charges.

Delegations from the two countries are scheduled to meet next week in the Ethiopian capital to discuss security issues.

In a related issue, Sudan’s ruling National Congress Party (NCP) said it is discussing the African Union Peace and security Council (AUPSC) demand that Khartoum negotiates directly with SPLM-N.

Sudan has rejected talks with SPLM-N and scrapped an AU brokered framework agreement in June 2011 it signed with the rebel group.

Hasabu Abdel-Rahman, the NCP deputy political secretary, said that no talks are possible without South Sudan severing links with SPLM-N in the two border states, which Khartoum still refer to as the 9th and 10th division of the SPLA - the former southern rebels who are now the official military of the Republic of South Sudan.

      this is not the really word from bashier ’’previous agreements signed with Juba are not subject to revisions or change and they must be implemented as signed’’ simple question, when is that? and for sure some need re-adjustment.

          Bunches of fools turn politicians think everyone is their sheeple. I am not against any sound minded S Sudanese who buy these sheeples sellings anyway, but first we need to see where our messiehs operate & what their policies are before we consider them relavent; otherwise, they are just bunch of DON’T KNOWS, Who want to flock everyone who wants what to hear they want to hear. Good luck on them.

    That’s correct Mr. president, the south has no job other than harrasing north, they can’t build a country because they don’t have the necessary basic elements to build a nation and country, nothing really unify and sovereign them as one nation and

    • 11 February 2013 08:21, by Jalaby

      country,nothing really unify and sovereign them as one nation and they’re uncertain about their identity!
      They’re visionless and have very short sighted, they separated from Sudan with the mentality of Sudan still part of them but the south is not part of Sudan anymore, they want to have Sudan citizenship but Sudan shouldn’t have their citizenship, they want Sudan

      • 11 February 2013 08:22, by Jalaby

        to treat them as one country as before and allows them to use all the facilities in the north free of charge: oil transition, food, goods, etc while Sudan has no right to use any of their facility for free!!

        • 11 February 2013 08:25, by Jalaby

          Mr. president, those people are nothing but visionless and their full time job now is
          to harass Sudan and disturb it!
          Only that stick you hold on your left hand will help and make those people honor what they agreed on before and stand straight on the line!!

          • 11 February 2013 08:37, by Chol A.

            Jalaby can you as your uncle who is he fooling now? Is that South Sudan, AU or his own citizens? Why he bother to attend meeting in Ethiopia? We either no worry of his attitude and nothing new to South Sudanese either. Please play your game and you will deserve it soon.

            • 12 February 2013 04:19, by mogokafi

              Comrade Chol, Jalaby does understands what his uncle Bashir is talking about. Bashir is technically begging South Sudan but the fool Jalaby doesn’t get it. Remember how Bashir and gangs used to be tough on South Sudan few years ago before it’s secession and now they are crying. But you know what, you got to play the game the same way.

    • 11 February 2013 08:34, by Tutbol

      The North will revise its demands whether they want it or not, if it wants to be a viable country. Those nonsenses of massing up army in Abyiei will not be as slick as the 2011 invasion. Let them invade again at their own peril, for the Souh is prepared for these menaces for some times now.

    • 11 February 2013 09:30, by aguotwany@live.com

      Jalaba, do not worry about building South Sudan, we have war to deal with you while we are building. You re our enemy number one and you must disappear first , our war with you just beginning . Did you forgot the gonocide your government committed in South during war. Idiot , do not talking about building none of your business . Let us fight first .

    • 11 February 2013 09:35, by Jong Anthony

      what do your president know rather then killing his own people and stealing of other nation’s oil ?
      are you not shame of your president being a most wanted warlord in the Africa continent ?

      • 11 February 2013 15:21, by americans against jamjaweed animals

        Bashir and musa hilal PEACE in the same sentence. Hardly. The enitre world has watched as you ravaged your own country for greed.
        Peace. What a joke? I’m surprised he didn’t give sainthood to Musa Hilal the janjaweed animal.

    • 11 February 2013 13:22, by Ayuiu Makuac Lam

      I do agree with president Bashir says. and i do blame south sudan diplomats including president Kiir, why do they beg Bashir administration? while south has army, they stop presuading and to solve militarily.

  • 11 February 2013 08:20, by master

    this what we want to hear

  • 11 February 2013 08:51, by Juba City

    Bashir, we the mare citizen of the Republic of South Sudan we don’t support the nonsense you two presidents are discussing. Its over between us. leave us alone. Ngundeng said the oil will not be reopen when its shutdown if you don’t believe ask of the Nuer elder he will tell you. Notice that the VP is silent just because he knows it very well.

  • 11 February 2013 09:03, by Makunon

    What do you have to offer,South Sudan was not offer neither Abyei or anything to be offer. These are South Sudan’s owns things and be it forever.Go and treat yr cancer

  • 11 February 2013 09:15, by Jong Anthony

    why do you say what you will not implement ? in case we fail to get our right diplomatically then we will not fail to get it militarily, we did not beg you to accept our separation but it was the pressure we exerted on your poor regime, you should not forget that

  • 11 February 2013 09:57, by wang

    “Bashir says Sudan has no more concessions to offer Juba”. Then what is next--- both plans A & B failed. War on the table, SPLA should stay alert for a next 3-4 months.

  • 11 February 2013 10:15, by New Government

    such a homo sexual like Bashir don’t understand what is so call right.
    you will never have any access to the oil again.

    • 11 February 2013 11:15, by Paul Ongee

      Ya Omer Al-Bashit,
      It’s too early to cry. South Sudan is ours; it wasn’t given to us by you as you are struggling to state to the media. If you know the history and the meaning of Sudan, then what did you own and give to South Sudanese on July 9th, 2011? Instead you wept and are still weeping bitterly. We know how it cost you to stay in power. Losing a lifeline like RSS is really devastating.

      • 11 February 2013 11:16, by Paul Ongee

        You are only left with only one option – taking this country back to war at any rate in order to pave way for stealing oil of South Sudan to remedy your struggling economy. It is a daydreaming. Believe me or not. If you cannot take back Halayib Triangle from Egyptian occupation, please, stop your daydreaming about resources in the South Sudan.

        • 11 February 2013 11:17, by Paul Ongee

          The security issue that you’re struggling to make it a case at every AU summit is purely nonsensical. However you articulate it, it will never strike any cord to distract opposition forces inside Khartoum or SPLM-N/SRF from changing your regime by both peaceful and military means before ICC steps on your doorstep.

          • 11 February 2013 11:24, by Paul Ongee

            Amassing troops around Abyei and other disputed areas is completely military intimidation that can be easily translated into a catalyst for your speedy exit from power. We don’t have time to waste with a President and his cohorts who don’t know their identity where they belong historically, continentally, religiously and culturally but only survive economically and socially by fooling AL and AU.

            • 11 February 2013 11:36, by Paul Ongee

              Look at the picture. This is how he will be sitting in The Hague and listening to the ICC’s ruling if he fails to commit suicide or get caught hiding under a bridge like Muamar Gadhaffi of Libya or Sadam Hussein of Iraq. Bashar Asad of Syria is fininshed; Iran and Sudan should made a decision, now not tomorrow, who will be next? The choice is yours.

      • 11 February 2013 12:47, by Tutbol

        Paul Ongee,
        As you state it bro that our country belongs to Al bashire, "S Sudan is yours" In your post, any correction? Or it is just a typo?

        • 11 February 2013 12:49, by Tutbol

          Paul, donot respond to this request, sorry for that brother.

  • 11 February 2013 10:50, by Pif Paf

    Bravo Bashir. We have already given too much concessions to a country that is threatening over security. We need to concentrate of save guarding our borders and help South Sudan get rid of there government. Our 3 year program is going as plan and the worst is over. Very Wise strategy indeed Mr.President.

    • 11 February 2013 11:12, by wang

      Pif Paf
      You are praised AL Bashir statement for nothing and soon you all will regret on that. Do you know why your President was over reaction today? It was proposal of a new pipeline that due to be starting in October sometime this yr. and the pipeline is only thing which keep connecting the two countries. Lossing South is so hard for criminal.

      • 11 February 2013 13:26, by Pif Paf

        No one believe that pipeline story. You still dont have investors to build that pipelines but already you are saying it will start in october. That pipeline is not viable in every sense. Even it was the rebels will knock it down. Either way no more concessions !!

    • 11 February 2013 12:17, by Robot

      When you lose one part of your body, it is so painful and time taking to get acquainted to normal life.. Sudan is under a euphoria that is so painful... BUT WELL PUT THERE BY A COMMENTATOR WHO SAID YOUR "PLAN B" HAS FAILED, THE MORE YOU WAIT FOR OUR (SS) COLLAPSE THE FASTER YOUR REGIME & ECONOMY (KHARTOUM) IS COLLAPSING.

  • 11 February 2013 13:44, by Ayuiu Makuac Lam

    Thank you Mr. President.
    President Bashir is right not to conced more offer to the republic south sudan due to alot of corruption. South Sudanese flashpoint is corruption nor state borders and development of their states.
    If i were president kiir, all of us I the president, ministers ,ambassadors and normal staffs can go to border for treatment to the north sudan millitarily.
