The Peace Negotiations on South Kordofan and Blue Nile States will be resumed today Tuesday in Addis Ababa with the Sudanâ€™s delegation headed by Kamal Obied. Mr. Obied said before leaving to Ethiopia Monday evening that they will not waive any right of the Sudanese people for the favor of any party, pledging that the directives and agenda of the negotiations will be based on the aspiration and ideas of the citizens of the two areas and that there is no way for those who want to trigger war or trade in these issues for personal gains or for the benefit of western agenda. He affirmed in his address before the women of Nuba Mountains at the National Assembly that they will work to reach an agreement leading to the stoppage of war and realizing a lasting peace in the country. He said that the delegation will work to achieve decisive results in the negotiations, saying that Sudan delegation includes important figures in the community of South Kordofan and the Blue Nile States.
The chairman of the government delegation pointed out that the other party has sought much to mislead the public opinion through false information which had been presented to the African Union mediator, but the mediators have understood the view of Sudan delegation and they were astonished when they were briefed on the facts about the killing of the Speaker of the South Kordofan Legislative Assembly, Ibrahim Blandia, as well as the detention of Telephon Kuku, indicating that the SPLM was seeking to obtain military gains to strengthen its stance in the negotiations in Addis Ababa.
He stressed that the government was adherent to separate a political axis from the axis of the relief which the SPLM is benefiting from on the operations of support, saying that the ceasefire which is not based on specific grounds is a real challenge that has been facing the peace agreements.
He concluded that the government delegation will coordinate and consult with all mechanisms and institutions of the South Kordofan and Blue Nile States on all issues of talks in Addis Ababa.
