Open in new windowNegotiations on peace between Sudan and South Sudan held recently in Addis Ababa under mediation by the AU High Level Implementation Panel (AUHIP) will be resumed on June the 19th. A delegation member of the Sudan's delegation to the talks Omer Dahab said that the wrapping up of the talks was due to engagement of the chairman and some members of the AUHIP. The Sudan's delegation to the talks in the Ethiopian capital returned home on Saturday after suspension of the talks. On a map presented by the South Sudan as a basis for negotiations, Mr. Dahab said in a statement to the Sudan Radio that the only legitimate map his government can consider as basis for the talks is the map upon which they signed the Comprehensive Peace Agreement with the SPLM in 2005, and implemented the troops’ redeployment. He added that the map presented by the South Sudan implicates expansion ambitions into the Sudanese land. He further said that the South Sudan's new map contradicts the map upon which Sudan has recognized the newly- born state.
