March 1, 2012 (KHARTOUM/JUBA) – The African Union should pile pressure on South Sudan, until it withdraws its troops from the "five Sudanese areas", Sudan’s Vice President, Al-Haj Adam, said in reference to areas both countries claim on the common border.

Al-Haj, while speaking in Ed Daein, the capital of East Dafur state on Friday, said "Sudan would not surrender even an inch of its territory" as demanded by Juba, for it to withdraw its troops from Mile 14 and the other disputed areas.

On 27 September last year, the two countries signed a number of agreements, including one related to the five disputed areas where a demilitarised zone is to be established. Both countries, until now, have failed to operationalise the agreement due to their divergence over the territory of Mile 14.

However, the Sudanese Vice President insists his country has respected the agreement, without resorting to the use of force, adding that the Sudanese army (SAF) is capable of extending its control over these sites as it has done before.

Al-Haj’s remarks comes barley a day after the Sudanese foreign ministry issued a statement reaffirming its desire to implement cooperation agreements it signed with South Sudan, in the presence of the AU mediation team.

"The Government of the Sudan would like to reiterate its commitment to the comprehensive and coordinated implementation as provided for in the Cooperation Agreements of 27 September 2012 and the outcomes of the Heads of State summit report of 5th January 2013," the statement carried by state media said.

The Sudanese foreign ministry, in the statement, also stressed that the implementation of the agreements "is to be comprehensive, in a coordinated manner and without selectivity or conditionality".

"The Government of the Sudan is willing and resolved to continue positively the negotiations on implementation of all agreements reached by the two sides and urges the other side to honor its obligations and avoid backtracking in order to ensure smooth and unhindered implementation of the agreements," the release adds.

South Sudan President, Salva Kiir on Thursday told African leaders he is not interested in talks with Khartoum that will drag on "indefinitely".

However, Phillip Aguer, the spokesperson for South Sudan army (SPLA) has welcomed Sudan government’s commitment to the implementation of the September agreement.

"I think Sudan government’s confirmation of its commitment to enforcing the agreement is a positive and welcome idea, but these people, as you may have seen, say one thing, but their actions are usually different," Aguer told Sudan Tribune by phone.

He said the SPLA will abide by the security arrangement provided within the cooperation agreement, signed by South Sudan’s Kiir and his Sudanese counterpart, Omar Al Bashir in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa.

The two countries, in recent months, accused each other of cross-border attacks and amassing troops on both sides of the borders.

    Hey Mr Al Haji, The mile 14 doesn’t belong to Sudan. It is an area to be demilitrised on both side of Sudan n South Sudan to allow AU troops to monitor demarcation of the borders that u r not interested to implement. Adjust ur self first before south sudan with draw its troops.

      THESE FOLKS ARE TAKING A BEATING IN KURMUK AND WERE SO HOPEFUL TO DEFEAT THE NUBA THERE UNDER THE FACADE OF DMZ. WE KNOW PEACE KEEPERS PROVIDE COVER FOR SAF WHO EXPLOIT THE SITUATION MINE RESOURCES FOR THEIR SELF GAIN.
      THE NOTION THAT OIL WILL BE ALLOWED TO GO THROUGH SUDAN ONLY IF DMZ IS IMPLEMENTED HAS FADED BECAUSE JUBA LIVED WITHOUT OIL FOR 50YRS OR MORE. NOW NCP IS ASKING AU TO PREASURE JUB

        THEY HAVE EVEN ASKED SAUDI FOR ARMS AND ASKED ETHIOPIA TO PRESSURE JUBA FOR TALKS VERY SOON. BUT ALL ALONG, IT IS NCP TO IMPLEMENT THOSE OUTSTANDING ISSUES BECAUSE IN DUE TIME, SOUTH WILL ACQUIRE SOME MILITARY HARDWARE THAT WILL AUGMENT ITS MILITARY CAPABILITY. THE THOUGHT THAT SAUDI OR QATAR AND EGYPT WILL BE ABLE TO SUPPORT SUDAN IS A FARCE. THE GEOPOLITICAL LANSCAPE HAS CHANGED SIGNIFICANTLY

    Dear S.Sudanese, we Ethiopian brothers know that Sudan, alluded by Egypt and Saudis who consider them inferior semi-Arabs, out of confusion made a miscalculation that they would shield her if she allowed them to give them airbase and join the attacking Ethiopia! Don’t worry much,we are always with you! We are just waiting Sudan to cross our RED LINE, then it will cease to exist!

    South Sudan does not have any problem but your Sudan is the one causing trouble for itself. South Sudan is small baby whose its teeth are growing very past. Junubeen are ready even to pay the same price lives.

    Al-Haj, what changes you from war to peace? Now I recalled the words of Dr. Garang, saying that if an Arab want peace it’s mean war and war mean peace according to their idealistic. This people who born through rapping their moms are senseless to listen to them. I am praying for 2015 to come, we needs change in south Sudan. I myself need a radical leader who don’t even speak shit Arabic.

    This miles 14 plan is a suicidal plan. Otherwise, those of. Aweil, Unity, Upper Nile will depends their territories, if Kiir accept miles 14. Ask me if am joking! We had endured this for so long since Fuj around 14-1500 AC under Fuj kingdom. I don’t know yet what Bashiir kingdom will do to us. So, the following 3 things will never happen.
    A. Miles 14

      Iam not in agreement with Al-haj Adam but he is/was not gay .
      He was a worrior and jailed. He is 100% Darfurian. He is the mixture of Fur and Beni Halba. He supported Dr Garang.
      But CHANGE made him to CHANGE. He may CHANGE.
