Security Council earlier this month endorsed a road map designed by the African Union Peace and Security Council calling for the immediate resumption of talks to settle the outstanding issues between the two Sudans with three months.
The 15 member council on 2 May threatened to impose economic sanctions against the two parties if they fail to comply with the resolution 2046. The latter was unanimously adopted after South Sudan’s seizure of Heglig oil area and the start of a large scale war between the two parties.
Speaking at a graduation ceremony of 250 combatants of Popular Defense Forces (PDF) in Shandi of River Nile State on Saturday, Nafi reaffirmed that “Sudan would only accept what is dictated by its free will”. He stressed that his government does not care about the recent decisions of the AU and UN.
The presidential assistant and deputy leader of the ruling National Congress Party said that his government was able to surpass adversity and challenges in the past and now is more powerful .
He pointed out that the attack on Heglig carried out by South Sudanese army meant to prevent the Sudanese economy from oil income.
The presidential assistant attended recently PDF militias graduation ceremonies in several states which pledged to send combatants to fight rebels in South Kordofan and Blue Nile states.
Speaking in the capital of South Darfur state, Nyala last Thursday, Nafie renewed accusations against the South Sudan ruling party , SPLM, of exporting its war against Khartoum to Darfur region.
Sudanese officials mentioned this week the arrival of rebels from South Sudan to North, South and East Darfur states. Sudan says the rebel are harboured in Jonglei, Unity and Bahr El-Ghazal states of South Sudan.
Nafie further accused Israel of transporting Darfurian refugees to South Sudan military camps for training before to send them to wage war in Darfur against the government troops.
“Jewish and Western circles want to make Darfur a dagger in the heart of the country to hinder its march towards renaissance and progress,” he said.
Sudanese officials used to accuse Israel of supporting Darfur rebels.
There are some five hundred Darfurian refugees in Israel where they arrived after crossing from Egypt.
