The Sudanese Foreign Affairs ministry on Tuesday summoned top diplomats from Britain, US and Norway over claims alleging that South Sudan supports rebel movements in the country. Khartoum officials, SUNA reported, informed the British and US Charge d’Affaires and the Ambassador of Norway of rebel groups, which recently attacked Um-Rawaba and Abu-Karshola areas of Sudan. Rahamtalla Osman, the ministry’s Undersecretary reportedly told the diplomats, who were summoned separately, that Sudan rejects such an hostile act, which he said would have negative impact on the relations between the two countries. He further warned that the seemingly improving relations between Sudan and South Sudan risks losing ground, should the level of mistrust between the two countries continue rising. Meanwhile, the three western...

Monday talks came after UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the African Union demanded both sides to create calm the restive area. The tensions in Abyei, a region claimed by South Sudan and Sudan, intensified after Kual Deng Majok, the Abyei leader of the Dinka Ngok, and an Ethiopian UN peacekeeper were killed on Saturday. Both Juba and Khartoum slammed the deadly clashes. “Our president has been in direct contact with president Bashir… they exchanged ideas about this sad incident,” South Sudan’s Information Minister Barnaba Marial Benjamin said. Ban advised both countries on “avoiding any escalation of this unfortunate event,” with the AU, as the mediator between Juba and Khartoum, saying, “the two countries must ensure that the current situation does...

Juba — South Sudan said on Sunday that it will reclaim the oil- producing region of Abyei from the government of neighboring Sudan with which it has repeatedly failed to settle the region's final status "at any cost", and repeated accusation to Khartoum of "masterminding" the killing of paramount chief Kuol Deng Kuol on Saturday. Kuol,was killed during following a standoff that lasted for several hours with armed members of the Misseriya who claimed that the Dinka Ngok chief was passing through their land without permission. However, Sudan's interior ministry said in a statement today that the armed Misseriya demanded from Kuol that their stolen cattle stolen by Dinka Ngok returned to them. The tribal leader was being escorted in...

Africa's brisk economic growth over the past decade has been consumer driven, a much-hyped trend that masks the uncomfortable fact that the region remains far too reliant on commodities. Sub-Saharan Africa's growth has been second only to Asia and cracked along at 5.8 percent last year, according to a World Bank estimate, if South Africa, the continent's biggest economy, is excluded. About two-thirds of growth in the past decade has been driven by domestic demand, which has been stoked by a number of factors including the continent's fast-growing and young population. Consumption has had multiplier effects into a range of services including banking and finance. Yet unlike in Asia, Africa's consumer boom has been financed mostly by income generated from...

The African Union on Wednesday brought together for the first time for peace talks Sudan and insurgents fighting government troops in two states bordering South Sudan, in a conflict that has affected almost a million people. Fighting broke out between the Sudanese army and the Sudan People's Liberation Movement-North, or SPLM-North, in the states of South Kordofan and Blue Nile around the time of South Sudan's secession from Khartoum in 2011. The violence has displaced or severely affected more than 900,000 people, according to the United Nations. Sudan previously refused to meet the SPLM-North, and accused South Sudan of backing the rebels, charges denied by Juba. Khartoum altered its position after ties with South Sudan greatly improved last month with...

Pour pallier la faiblesse de leurs réserves, les pays du nord du continent multiplient les appels d'offres. Attisant la concurrence au sein d'un secteur qui ne compte qu'une dizaine d'acteurs. Hier coûteux et réservé aux pays pétroliers bénéficiant d'une énergie quasi gratuite, le dessalement de l'eau de mer est de plus en plus prisé en Afrique (surtout dans le Nord) pour la consommation, l'irrigation ou l'industrie. Il faut dire que les coûts de construction des usines ont chuté : ils n'excèdent pas 800 à 1 100 euros le mètre cube par jour (m3/j), contre 1 000 à 1 300 euros le m3/j en 2000. « Le tarif de l'eau dessalée par osmose inverse [l'une des deux technologies disponibles ; l'autre,...

À voir les clients de la cour pénale internationale(CPI), on n’est commune mesure étonné de voir que la majorité de ses « clients » sont issus des pays pauvres notamment ceux originaires de l’Afrique d’où la question éthique de la partialité de cette institution créée par les Nations-Unies(?) pour juger les personnes présumées responsables de certaines atteintes à la personne. Brièvement, la CPI est une juridiction permanente chargée de juger les personnes accusées de génocide, de crime contre l’humanité et de crime de guerre, mais on doit se demander des nombreuses questions sur les personnes déférées devant cette cour quand on sait que des nombreuses personnes bien connues avaient agi au nom de leur pays pour perpétrer des crimes atroces...
