Oil File .. Juba & Khartoum or Washington & Beijing
The South Sudan Parliament has revealed intentions to provide the delegation of negotiations with what it described as a package of constructive suggestion and recommendations for solving the pending issues between Juba and Khartoum.
Head of the opposition bloc said on last Thursday that they were keen to map out objective solutions to these pending files that maintain the rights of each country.
In the same context, China said it is working to handle the status of the Chinese companies with the Southern side after the expulsion of one of the Malaysian companies in an attempt to avoid any differences that could complicate the situation.
In fact, the oil crisis between Khartoum and Juba does not seem like a crisis between the two states or a crisis over transit oil fees as the current reality reveals that the administration of the oil file is not run by the South Sudan government alone. The exacerbation of the crisis to involve the oil companies is additional evidence that there file is not run completely by the South Sudan government.
According to Sudansafari sources, China is now adopting self-control over the current situation as it realizes the attempts to replace the Chinese and Malaysian companies with US companies.
Political sources in the South Sudan government told Sudansafari that the oil file is now run outside the government of South Sudan, referring to the armament contracts between Juba and some international powers including Washington.
