CAR’s new president in Khartoum for talks on bilateral ties


June 17, 2013 (KHARTOUM) – Michel Djotodia, new president of Central African Republic (CAR), arrived Monday to Khartoum where he held talks with his Sudanese counterpart Omer Al-Bashir.

Djotodia who is the first Muslim to lead his nation was elected last April by an acting parliament after toppling the regime of the former president François Bozizé.

During the two day visit the two leaders will sign bilateral cooperation agreements including health, transport and security issues, said the state minister for foreign affairs Salah Wansi on Monday.

Wansi stressed that the talks will also include the tripartite security cooperation deal between Chad, CAR, and Sudan.

The three countries agreed last year to form a joint force to monitor the common border and prevent rebel attacks.

The two parties are also expected to discuss the presence of the Ugandan troops which are in CAR to search the rebel Lord Resistance Army (LRA).

"Sudan is very concerned by the presence of the Ugandan troops there", said a Western researcher working in the region because Kampala is supporting the Sudanese rebel groups and accuses Sudan of backing the LRA rebels.

The source said Djotodia also may ask Khartoum some financial support because his regime is facing international sanctions.

After the removal of Bozizé regime, the European Union suspended more than $200 million aid program, and warned it would not resume until the rule of law is re-established.

Sudan was among the first countries to provide the CAR with humanitarian assistance after the fall of Bozizé regime.

    I think the conversation between the two leaders should concentrate on how to open another pocket of rebellion against S Sudan through CAR!
    I believe Fertit people who live close to the border with CAR are ready to go and revenge from Dinka because Dinka killed them badly few months ago without any real reason other than degrading them just because they’re Fertit!!

      People of that country would never accept such nonsense as CAR has no any enmity with people of South Sudan. After all, People of that country know it’s Sudan which is main source of distability in their country. On other hand, should they do, gallant SPLA will be forced to crush that new regime along with NiF in Khartoum. South Sudan’s becoming Israel ll, another pain on your ass..lol

      By the way, Dinka didn’t Kill Fertit but the opposite is true. Even so, greater people of Fertit and Dinka have no bad blood. What happened is an isolated incident which you may not see happen again.

      Jalaby!!! Jalaby!!! Why your brain is always carry pregnancy of rebellion? CAR has full dose of problem and again you want to create for them to be overdose. Mind you Ugandan troops are still available in CAR as said in the news and Uganda will never accept her friend S.Sudan to be attacked by Sudan/CAR. Atleast talk about Bi-literal trade they trying to accept with but forget about rebell

    We know, Khartoum will ask Central Africa to host the rebell against South Sudan, the Farajall of Wau will are planning for rebellion and they will be hiding in Central Africa

    I am in Central Africa Republic, but you guys from north and south Sudan, you are really ugly and crazy people, you don’t think out of war, killing and rebellion?. I really hate the way you analyze the context and your perspective for the region and African continent. Please get up and look for peace and stop this stupidity. Stop thinking of war and killing ….vous êtes foux mes amis

    "The source said Djotodia also may ask Khartoum some financial support because his regime is facing international sanctions."
    I find it comical, someone is begging the beggars.

        • 18 June 2013 23:37, by Kenyang

          C’mon no one died in South Sudan for yrs or so as result of hunger. Yes, there is hunger and suffering just as it’s across Sudan. In South Sudan, there is hunger because of you, oppressors were oppressing them. What is funny why great country (Sudan) of oppressors (aka looters) is now oozing in the ass, who is to blame- the oppressed, South Sudanese for running away? Lol

      • 18 June 2013 23:15, by Kenyang

        Northern Sudanese,
        "Kenyang whore" what is that? Naming calling because i said ’begging beggars." Of course, it’s true, S. Sudan is donating millions of dollars, what for if you don’t need it while NiF officials are scrambling countries for handout...lol

    According to Diana West, the U.S. (under puppet socialist manchurian candidate Hussein Obama)is making bad deals with Islamic extremist devils compromising the nation’s security and standing in the world, not to mention further endangering and undermining of the country’s values and way of life.

    Actually, it was the Fertit who massacred innocent Dinka’s farmers. Those whom they killed were not part of the whole thing between Fertit and their government in WBGs. The governor in Wau is not a Dinka, nor did Dinka called for Fertit to demonstrate or called government to fire at Fertit who demonstrated against it. So stop preaching unsubstantiated information.

  • 19 June 2013 06:29, by Akoch A. Magardit

    North would not survive a day if it where not the Nuba and Southern tribes in its army back in the days. You guys in the north should watch out now. Whether with Dinka in the South or without Dinka, nobody wants you again in South Sudan. If you still do not know, you better learn from now on. Arrow boys are handling LRA so far, so you should know that South Sudan is not Dinka.
