The minister demanded South Sudan to withdraw its threats on launching of a new attack against Sudan, urging South Sudan not to harbor the rebel movements and to stop extending military and political support to them, besides ending its link with its followers in the Blue Nile and South Kordofan States.
Karti said that as long as South Sudan is attacking the Sudanese territories and supporting the outlaws there will be no negotiations unless the security file is solved. He expressed doubt that South Sudan has a desire to reach a solution for the pending issues between the two countries, referring to its recent aggressions and its occupation of Helgig and attacks on Taludi.
