Open in new windowThe President of the Republic Omer Albashir affirmed Saturday that his country would only resume negotiation with the South Sudan on security issues on the basis of borders of 1/1/1956 and the known map whereby the borders of the two countries have been determined. Addressing a meeting of the ruling National Congress Party (NCP) Shura (consultation) Council, Mr. Albashir said that there would be no talks or negotiations on security arrangements unless an agreement is reached on the zero line which separates the two countries and in accordance with the borders of 1/1/1956. The President of the Republic accused South Sudan of seeking to derail the negotiations sponsored by the AU explaining that the map presented by South Sudan contradicts all the previously agreed maps whereby the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) was signed and South Sudan Referendum was conducted. He criticized the international community for failing to appreciate the efforts exerted by the Sudanese government to achieve peace in South Sudan.
The President explained that the Government made tremendous efforts on the issue of peace with South Sudan, Darfur, Eastern Sudan and South Kordofan. He said the map which was presented to the AUPSC and UNSC was inconsistent with all the maps agreed upon between Sudan and South Sudan signed by the Adhoc Border Demarcation Committee which indicated four contentious points.
