Thread: Great news Sudan

  1. Thumbs up Great news Sudan

    South Sudan on Thursday formally invited its “brother,” Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, to a summit in April aimed at resolving outstanding issues which have pushed them to the brink of war.

    “We delivered the message to President Bashir and he welcomed it. He expressed his readiness to visit Juba,” the South’s top negotiator, Pagan Amum, said in a statement to reporters at the cabinet offices in Sudan’s capital.

    Amum, who arrived with a delegation of ministers, said the South’s leader Salva Kiir had invited his “brother president” to the April 3 summit “with the aim of solving the pending issues between the two states.”

    It would be Bashir’s first visit to the South since it separated in July last year following an overwhelming vote at the end of Africa's longest war.

    After months of failed negotiations, a dispute over oil fees, and mutual accusations of backing rebels on each other’s territory, Amum last week said relations had turned positive after the latest African Union-led talks in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

    At those meetings the two sides reached agreements on safeguarding the status of each other's citizens and demarcating the oil-rich border.

    When South Sudan gained its independence it took about three-quarters of Sudanese oil production but it has no facilities of its own to export the crude.

    At the heart of their dispute has been disagreement over how much Juba should pay to use the northern pipeline and port.

    The new nation shut crude production in late January after accusing Sudan of “stealing” its oil.

    But Amum said last week that Sudan has agreed to pay back oil it had taken, while South Sudan would hand over months of unpaid transit fees, although further negotiations were still needed.


    U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon had warned the crisis between Sudan and South Sudan was a major threat to regional peace and security.

    Tensions peaked in late February and early March when Khartoum threatened retaliation after accusing the South of backing a rebel attack in the disputed border area of Jau.

    Air strikes followed on an oil field in the South’s Unity State, an attack Juba blamed on Khartoum’s forces.

    “They really came to the brink of war... but they realized that the international community would not support them,” an analyst who asked not to be named told AFP.

    The U.N.’s Ban welcomed the planned summit and said the agreements on borders and citizenship were “an important step forward and an encouraging manifestation of both parties’ spirit of cooperation and partnership.”

    I'm certainly surprised by your post, AbuSina...

    You seem to have no respect whatsoever for "the International community".

    Without that community, there would have been no Southern Sudan in the first place.

    South Sudan Resumes Oil Production
    April 06, 2013 — South Sudan has restarted oil production after agreeing with Sudan to resume cross-border oil flows last month, an executive at the state oil company said on Saturday. After months of negotiations both African countries agreed earlier this month to resume cross-border oil flows after tensions between them eased.
    Landlocked South Sudan, which shut down its entire output of 350,000 barrels a day in a row with Khartoum over oil fees last year, needs to export its oil through Sudanese pipelines and the port of Port Sudan. "Yes it has started," Paul Adong Bith Deng, managing director of state oil firm Nile Petroleum (Nilepet), told Reuters by phone from the Thar Jath oilfield in Unity state, South Sudan, when asked whether oil production had been resumed.

    Sudan and South Sudan agreed for the South to resume oil production with an initial output of between 150,000 bpd and 200,000 barrels bpd, Sudan's state news agency SUNA said late on Friday, quoting officials from both countries. The first cargo would reach Port Sudan at the end of May, SUNA said, two weeks later than initially expected.

    There was no immediate comment from South Sudan's Oil Ministry. South Sudan's oil minister said on March 14 that oil companies in the South had been ordered to restart production, which he said would take two to three weeks. Both countries depend heavily on crude exports for state revenues and use the foreign currency to import food and fuel.

    South Sudan seceded from Sudan in 2011 under a 2005 peace deal which ended one of Africa's longest civil wars but both countries remain at loggerheads over ownership of disputed territories and other issues. South Sudan is one of the world's least-developed nations and grows very little of its own produce. Its decision to turn off its oil wells triggered a deep recession.

    Is it because the mijority are not muslims ?
    Is it because they have diplomatic relations with the west and Israel ?
