SAF Accuses South Sudan of Violating Cessation of Hostilities
Khartoum – Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) accused the Government of South Sudan of violating the UN Security Council resolution on cessation of hostilities between Sudan and South Sudan.
SAF Spokesperson Col. Al-Sawarmi Khalid Saad said the South Sudan army (SPLA) continues to violate the UNSC resolution on cessation of hostilities in the areas of Samaha, Kafia Kenji and in some other areas.
He told Sudan Vision that the Sudanese Government’s negotiators are ready to engage South Sudan to reach an agreement to end tension between the two countries.
Khalid, however, pointed out that SAF has the right to use force if the resolution on cessation of hostilities is not implemented. He said the UNSC and the AUPSC have been informed that if the resolution is not implemented by South Sudan SAF would use force to reclaim Sudanese territories and should not be condemned in such a case.
