Sudan Downplays Khartoum Protests, S. Sudan on Toyota & Jonglei Killings

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, June 28 -- Sudan and South Sudan have of late formed an explosive item on the UN Security Council's agenda, but Thursday it was not. After low key consultations, Inner City Press asked Sudan's Ambassador Daffa-Alla Elhag Ali Osman if it is true the talks in Addis Ababa are stalled.

   No, he replied, the talks are productive and will start again on July 5.

Inner City Press asked about the protests in Khartoum and elsewhere against austerity. Sudan's Ambassador said his country respects peaceful protest but not destruction of buildings.

Because a member of Thabo Mbeki's panel said in closed door consultations, as exclusively reported by Inner City Press, that South Sudan's plan was to deny Khartoum oil transfer fees until Bashir is overthrown, Inner City Press asked Sudan's Ambassador about this linkage.

He said there are problems and protests everywhere. And then he left.

South Sudan's Ambassador Francis Nazario followed with a prepared statement. Then Inner City Press, the only reporter at the stakeout, asked him if Sudan is still engaged in aerial bombing. Yes, he said, along the border.

Inner City Press asked if its Toyota that will build the new pipeline bypassing Sudan. It's not confirmed yet, he said, but yes we will build a pipeline.

After the belatedly release of the UN's report about killings in Jonglei State, Inner City Press asked Nazario for his government's response. He said the government has deployed police and is protecting people. We'll see. Watch this site.
