    Sudan 'could give up' southern oil
    Government ready to give up share of oil wealth if South Sudan votes against independence in January, president says.

    Last Modified: 17 Dec 2010 22:13 GMT






    [​IMG] The latest clashes between the Sudanese army and former rebels has left thousands of people displaced [AFP] Sudan's president has said that his Khartoum-based government is ready to give up its share of the revenues from oil reserves from the south, if the region votes against independence.
    Omar al-Bashir said that the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement, which ended the civil war between the north and the south and set the date for the referendum on secession, had divided the oil wealth in order to "to encourage our brothers in Southern Sudan to vote for unity".

    However, in an address to a delegation of AU's Peace and Security Council in Khartoum on Thursday, Bashir said that the northern government was now willing to give up its share of the revenues to ensure the country remains undivided.

    "We say if they choose unity, we are ready for the national government to give up its full share in the oil of the South to the government of the south," he said.

    Secession 'probable'

    Bashir made the remarks just a day after one of his senior aides acknowledged that the south would likely vote to secede in the January 9 referendum after the "failure" of policies aimed at keeping Africa's largest nation united.
    "We say if they choose unity, we are ready for the national government to give up its full share in the oil of the South to the government of the South"
    Omar al-Bashir, Sudanese president
    Nafie Ali Nafie, who is also the deputy chief of the ruling National Congress Party, was quoted by the state news agency SUNA as saying that secession "has become probable".
    "We should not deceive ourselves ... we have to adhere to the facts and the reality," Nafie told a conference in Khartoum on Thursday.

    His remarks were taken by some as a sign that Khartoum would accept the result.

    According to some sources, the south has 75 per cent of Sudan's proven oil reserves. More than 90 per cent of Sudan's foreign currency revenues derive from oil as well as some 45 per cent of its entire budget.

    Meanwhile, UN officials have said that more than 12,000 people have been displaced by clashes between the Sudanese army and former rebels in less than week.
    Soldiers on Friday clashed with fighters of the Sudan Liberation Army (SLA) faction led by Minni Minnawi, the only rebel group to have signed a peace deal with Khartoum, in the South Darfur village of Khor Abeche.
    Humanitarian aid officials said the people displaced over the past week had been moved to camps in Shangil Tobaya and Zam Zam, in the neighbouring state of North Darfur.
    Ties between the SLA and the government have deteriorated to the point of armed confrontations since last week.
    Darfur has been gripped by a civil war since 2003 that has killed 300,000 people and displaced another 2.7 million, according to UN figures. Khartoum says 10,000 people have died in the conflict.

    Omar al-Bashir: northern Sudan will adopt sharia law if country splits

    President defends woman's flogging in speech accused of stoking religious divisions as south prepares for referendum



    • Reuters in Khartoum
    • guardian.co.uk, Sunday 19 December 2010 15.05 GMT [​IMG] Omar al-Bashir has been accused of deepening Sudan's international isolation. Photograph: Mohamed Nureldin Abdallah/Reuters Omar al-Bashir, the Sudanese president, said the country would adopt an Islamic constitution if the south split away in next month's referendum, in a speech today in which he also defended police filming a woman being flogged.
      "If south Sudan secedes, we will change the constitution and at that time there will be no time to speak of diversity of culture and ethnicity," Bashir told supporters at a rally in the eastern city of Gedaref.
      "Sharia [Islamic law] and Islam will be the main source for the constitution, Islam the official religion and Arabic the official language," he said.
      An official from south Sudan's main party criticised Bashir's stance, saying it would encourage discrimination against minorities in the mainly Muslim north and deepen the country's international isolation.
      The referendum in south Sudan, where most follow indigenous beliefs and Christianity, on whether to declare independence is scheduled to start on 9 January.
      The vote was promised in a 2005 peace deal that ended a civil war between north and south, and set up an interim constitution which limited sharia to the north and recognised "the cultural and social diversity of the Sudanese people".
      Analysts expect most southerners to choose independence in the poll, due to last for a week. Yasir Arman, from the Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM), said Bashir's statements would encourage repression in the north. "This type of discourse is preparing the ground for a police state. The north, whether alone or with the south, is an extremely diverse place."
      Arman said it was the north's hardline stance that had pushed southerners towards separation. "If it [the north] continues like this it will encourage other areas like Darfur, the Nuba mountains and eastern Sudan to walk out as well," he added, referring to areas on the peripheries of northern Sudan. "It will also result in Sudan having worse relations with the outside world."
      Southern leaders have said they are worried about how hundreds of thousands of southerners living in the north might be treated after a split.
      Arman, Bashir's main challenger in the presidential elections in April, is from the northern sector of the SPLM. He said his group would form a separate opposition party inside the north if the south seceded.
      Bashir also defended police shown lashing a woman in footage that appeared on YouTube. "If she is lashed according to sharia law there is no investigation. Why are some people ashamed? This is sharia," he said.
      Senior NCP member Nafie Ali Nafie said on Thursday that efforts to keep the country united had failed, in the first acknowledgement from the northern elite that the south would probably secede.
      Floggings carried out under Islamic law are almost a daily punishment in northern Sudan for crimes including drinking alcohol and adultery.
