The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has denounced continuity of hostilities of the State of South Sudan which are contrary to all the international norms and charters, besides its support to the armed attack by armed group against the area of al-Abiyyad.
A statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that Sudan reserves the right to retaliate the aggression against Abiyyad Lake as asserted by all international legislations in order to maintain the integrity of its lands and the stability of its people
The statement said that a rebellious group of more than 1500 combatants, supported by many officers and non-commissioned officers of the Army of the State of South Sudan (SPLM), attacked Al-AbIyyad area, six kilometers insides the Sudanese territories, early Sunday February 26, in an overt and direct aggression against the sovereignty and security of Sudan.
The statement explained that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs denounced these attacks with strongest expressions, which came only after two weeks since the signing of the memorandum of understanding by representatives of the State of South Sudan on non-aggression and non-support to the rebellious groups in presence and of the International Community and under the direct patronage of the African Union.
The statement said that Sudan has informed the international community, represented in the UN Security Council, and the regional community, represented in the African Union and the Arab League and other organizations, with regard to the repeated aggressions against its lands by the State of South Sudan as well as its insistence to maintain its military links with the 9th and 10th divisions in South Kordofan and the Blue Nile, and further continuing to support them with food materials, ammunitions and salaries even after the separation of the South from Sudan.
The ministry said that the government of South Sudan has directly masterminded the rebellion of the 9th and 10th divisions as well as undermining the political steps, a matter that led to the unification of the rebels of South Kordofan and the Blue Nile States with the rebels of Darfur movements that rejected the Doha Document for Peace in Darfur, in what is known as the Revolution Front, in a open attempt to destabilize the security of Sudan.
The statement said that the government of Sudan, while denouncing the continuity of these hostile actions by the State of South Sudan, in contrary to all the international conventions and charters, announced that it would file a new complaint to the UN Security Council and the African Union to inform them about the details of the incident and to demand them to assume their role in preventing any further aggressions against the security and stability of the Sudan.
