NCP-Khartoum vows to reciprocate on SPLA attacks in Southern Kordofan
19 June, 2011 (UNMIS MMR)
Al-Ahram Al-Youm – The head of the NCP office in Khartoum,
Abdulrahman Al-Khidir, says the SPLA attack on Southern Kordofan was ill-advised and that
the SPLA did not study well the possible outcome of such action. Al-Khidir who is also the
Governor of Khartoum State said that such action requires reciprocation so that the “SPLA
would come back to its senses” before any form of dialogue could be resumed. Al-Khidir was
addressing a relief convoy on its way to Southern Kordofan from Khartoum yesterday.
In a related development, Al-Rai Al-Aam quotes National Assembly Speaker Ahmed Ibrahim Al- Tahir as saying that the government would not allow the SPLA to destabilise the country. He blamed the SPLM leadership in the south – whom he described as having fallen under the influence of foreign parties - for the problems of Southern Kordofan.
