National Dialogue and Political Stability in Sudan

Abstract: In this paper, the author explores how dialogue has shaped many aspects of Sudanese political life. He identifies the term ‘dialogue’ from a linguistic and political perspective and provides an overview of what a political dialogue entails. The author further discusses the challenges facing national dialogue in Sudan which include but are not limited to: trust issues, favoring tribal and personal issues over the overall welfare of the nation, the environment, and the large number of political parties which sometimes lack a strategic plan. The author concludes by providing recommendations for providing the ideal environment for dialogue. Some of these recommendations include overcoming differences and coming up with strategic plans to be able to resolve conflict.

East Africa: Something Big Is Going On in Sudan, But Media Is Sound Asleep

By Deus Kibamba

For reasons that I may not know, recent and current trends in Sudan are going without any serious media attention. There is scant reporting on the dialogue process that began in 2013 and which is now resulting in a transition, starting with a transitory era that saw the recent appointment of a prime minister of the Republic of the Sudan (North Sudan) for the first time in many years.

Sudan: Closing Political Space and Media Crackdown

Press Statement

Mark C. Toner 

Deputy Department Spokesperson

Washington, DC

December 16, 2016

 

The United States is concerned about the Government of Sudan’s threatening rhetoric and the crackdown on Sudanese media in response to calls by Sudanese civil society for civil disobedience.

If protests do occur, we urge the Government to respond to protesters with restraint, and encourage Sudanese authorities to take all necessary steps to allow citizens to exercise their right to freedom of expression. At the same time, we encourage those exercising their fundamental rights to express their views to do so peacefully.

We also reiterate concerns expressed in U.S. Embassy Khartoum’s December 6 statement about the detention, apparently without charge, of a number of opposition political leaders and human rights advocates. We again urge Sudanese authorities to stop seizing newspapers and engaging in other forms of censorship of those who report on, or express, political views.

Obama Realized It Was Never Genocide in Darfur

The Obama administration—under three successive ‘Envoys for Sudan’ was very cautious yet productive in addressing the issues of Sudan especially those related to the allegations of genocide in Darfur. Although Obama used the word genocide many times as a senator and a presidential candidate, as his presidency progressed so did the Sudanese governments efforts towards peace and the international community’s realization that it was never really genocide.

Towards the end of his presidency, Obama never mentioned it. And rightfully so, because it had started as tribal conflict, and things spiraled out of control as the international community paid attention and harbored the rebels in luxurious hotels in Paris and other capitals across the developed world, control of oil became an issue and yes the Zionist regime also had a role to play as it secretly and publicly stated its support top the rebels and the high-profile propaganda campaign against the resource-rich region.

International Criminal Court Fears Exodus of African States

The International Criminal Court in The Hague has been rocked by a series of withdrawals by African countries that were original signatories to the Rome Statute that established the court. Henry Ridgwell has more.

LONDON — The International Criminal Court in The Hague has been rocked by a series of withdrawals by African countries that were original signatories to the Rome Statute that established the court.

This week, Russia also pulled its signature from the ICC treaty, and the Philippines could follow.

Three African states — Burundi, South Africa and Gambia — signaled their intention to quit the court this year, claiming it disproportionately targets African leaders.

Russia withdraws signature from international criminal court statute

 Vladimir Putin has issued a decree for Russia to withdraw from the Rome statute of the international criminal court. Photograph: Mikhail Metzel/TASSRussia has said it is formally withdrawing its signature from the founding statute of the international criminal court, a day after the court published a report classifying the Russian annexation of Crimea as an occupation.

The repudiation of the tribunal, though symbolic, is a fresh blow to efforts to establish a global legal order for pursuing genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity.

In recent months, three African countries who were all full members of the ICC – South Africa, Burundi and Gambia – have signalled their intention to pull out, following complaints that ICC prosecutions focused excessively on the African continent.

3 نوفمبر.. أي منعطف في العلاقات السودانية الأمريكية ؟ (1-2)

بقلم: خالد التيجاني النور:

تشير غالب المعطيات الراهنة إلى أن إدارة الرئيس الأمريكي باراك أوباما، الذي تبقى له أقل من ثلاثة أشهر في البيت الأبيض، ستغادر دون أن تحقق أي إنجاز على صعيد تحقيق السلام والاستقرار في السودان، الذي عاصرته موحداً وشهدت مولد انقسامه لدولتين متشاكستين، مسجلة بذلك فشلاً ذريعاً للإستراتيجية التي أعلنها في أكتوبر 2008 بعد تسعة أشهر من وصوله للمكتب البيضاوي التي حملت عنواناً حاسماً ومتفائلاً "سياسة الولايات المتحدة لإنهاء النزاع في السودان"، وكان مضمون تلك الإستراتيجية هو إنهاء النزاعات في السودان كافة بما في ذلك حرب دارفور، وضمان أن تؤدي اتفاقية السلام الشامل في نهاية الأمر إما إلى ميلاد "سودان متحدٍ في سلام واستقرار" مع نفسه ومحيطه، أو إلى تقسيم البلاد بشكل منتظم إلى "دولتين منفصلتين قابلتين للعيش في سلام داخلهما ومع بعضهما".

South Sudan's Support of Armed Sudanese Opposition Groups


Press Statement

Mark C. Toner

Deputy Department Spokesperson

Washington, DC

October 20, 2016

The United States calls on the Government of the Republic of South Sudan to comply with its commitments to cease harboring or providing support for Sudanese armed opposition groups, as required by UN Security Council Resolution 2046 (2012). Despite its obligations under international law and repeated agreements between the Government of the Republic of South Sudan and the Government of Sudan to end such support, credible reports continue to indicate the Government of the Republic of South Sudan is harboring and providing assistance to armed Sudanese opposition groups. We urge South Sudan's leaders to redouble their efforts to meet the commitments they recently reached with Sudan under which both sides agreed to end support for armed opposition groups on either side.

National Dialogue Creates New Potential for Sudan

By Lawrence Freeman, Political-Economic Analyst for Africa  

Khartoum-Oct. 14-- On Monday October 10, Sudan celebrated the conclusion of the historic National Dialogue intended to give birth to a New Sudan and new constitution.  Joining Sudan’s President Omar al Bashir on the dais were the heads of state from Egypt, Uganda, Chad and Mauritania, all who spoke in support of the agreement along with representatives from Russia, China, Ethiopia, and the Islamic Cooperation Organization. The following day President Bashir was seen dancing at an outdoor rally in front of cheering crowds. A senior member of the ruling National Congress Party-(NCP) told this author that the significance of this agreement is only second to the founding of Sudan in 1956 when Sudan liberated itself from British colonialism. President Bashir also announced extending the cease fire between government forces and military opposition groups in Darfur, Blue Nile, and South Kordorfan until the end of the year. Resolving the long standing internal armed conflict is essential for Sudan to proceed to the vital task of developing its flailing economy improving the living standards of its people. The lack of attendance and press coverage by the United States and Europe was notable, but not surprising.  The US led sanctions against Sudan that are inflicting undue hardships on the population and strangling the Sudan economy remains a critical obstacle for Sudan’s advancement on the path of progress following the remarkable accomplishment of the National Dialogue.

Darfur: A green and pleasant land

Michael Aron

By: Michael Aron - British Ambassador to Khartoum

Last month I visited Darfur for the first time. My first impression was how green and beautiful Darfur is. We flew to Nyala via El Geneina in West Darfur and flying over Darfur I was amazed how green the countryside is at this time of year. Driving along the road out of Nyala towards the Central African Republic the terrain becomes rich savannah, with lush pasture and extraordinary baobab trees. Everywhere there are farmers (mostly women) working in the fields, hoeing, carrying water and transporting crops on donkeys. I know that this green season is comparatively short but seeing the countryside so fertile and productive helped me understand the importance of the land to all Darfuris and why land and water have been the cause of so many disputes over the years. South Darfur has not yet suffered the desertification which is creeping through North Darfur but the consequences of climate change have impacted on the lives of both nomads and pastoralists and have contributed to conflict.

Time To Remove U.S. Sanctions On Sudan

By DOUG BANDOW

Like the dog that didn’t bark in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s tale, little advertising promotes American goods in Khartoum. Washington has banned most business with Sudan.

As I point out on Forbes: “Sanctions have become a tool of choice for Washington, yet severing commercial relations rarely has promoted America’s ends. Nothing obvious has been achieved in Sudan, where the U.S. stands alone. It is time for Washington to drop its embargo.

The Clinton administration first imposed restrictions in 1993, citing Khartoum as an official state sponsor of terrorism. The Bush administration imposed additional restrictions in response to continuing ethnic conflict.”

U.S. sanctions are not watertight, but America matters, especially to an underdeveloped nation like Sudan. At the Khartoum airport I spoke with an Egyptian businessman who said “sanctions have sucked the life out of the economy.” A Sudanese economics ministry official complained that “Sanctions create many obstacles to the development process.” In some areas the poverty rate runs 50 percent.

Ironically, among the strongest supporters of economic coercion have been American Christians, yet Sudanese Christians say they suffer from Washington’s restrictions. Explained Rev. Filotheos Farag of Khartoum’s El Shahidein Coptic Church, “we want to cancel all the sanctions.”

The Human Cost of America’s Not-So-Smart Sudan Sanctions

J. Peter Pham

For some twenty years, Sudan has been the target of United States sanctions which have not only blocked assets of the government, but imposed what is tantamount to a comprehensive trade embargo on the East African country. The sanctions have piled up over the years: to the original set imposed by President Bill Clinton in the 1990s to punish the regime in Khartoum for its support of international terrorism (Osama bin Laden lived there until 1996), additional measures were added by President George W. Bush and the U.S. Congress a decade later in response to human rights abuses in the Darfur region. While the extent to which these punitive measures have been effective in achieving their various objectives is highly debatable—as is, nowadays, the country’s continued legal designation as a “state sponsor of terrorism” given that the most recent version of State Department’s own annual terrorism report determined that the Sudanese government “remained a generally cooperative counterterrorism partner and continued to take action to address threats to U.S. interests and personnel in Sudan”—what is undeniable is that having taken applied a blunt instrument at a problematic authoritarian regime, the United States has also taken a very real human toll on some vulnerable groups unfortunate enough to be caught in the middle.

Time to revisit America's sanctions on Sudan

By J. Peter Pham

For some two decades, it has been the policy of the United States government to essentially ban American businesses and individuals from doing business with Sudan. With a few exceptions, thesanctions regime put in place under Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush and renewed by President Obama at the end of October bans the importation of Sudanese products and prohibits the export of U.S. goods, technology and services to, as well as the performance of "any contract in support of an industrial, commercial, public utility, or governmental project" in, the East African country. As I argued earlier this year, having adopted sanctions as the weapon of choice against the admittedly problematic regime of Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir, Washington has also exacted a heavy toll on some very vulnerable groups unfortunate enough to be caught in the middle of the crossfire of its economic war. Since then, additional evidence from a number of international agencies and other organizations has not only confirmed the negative impact of the sanctions on the Sudanese population, but also how the embargo has adversely affected key U.S. foreign policy objectives with regard to human development.

Darfur Referendum, another Victory for Doha Peace Document Triumph over Fear

Mubarak M.Musa

The overwhelming and unprecedented participation in the Administrative Referendum in Darfur last April, in which more than 97% of the registered voters, voted for the retaining the current five-state administrative system, leaves behind no an iota of doubt, that the general mood in Darfur today, against all odds, is in favor of peace and stability. The Referendum was conducted in commitment and conformity with the Doha Document for Peace in Darfur (DDPD), which provides that the permanent administrative status of Darfur should be determined through a referendum.

The referendum is a new victory for the (DDPD), whereunder, the people of Darfur have expressed their free will. In fact, the high turnout of voters comes to the very frustration and dismay of the self- proclaimed warlords and opposition groups, who kept on urging their scattered supporters, to boycott the said referendum. Likewise, it comes to the very dismay of skeptical Westerners and doomsayers, whose only business was to cast doubts, against the very fact of the prevalence of peace, stability and security, in almost all part of Darfur. A futile attempt to throw a monkey wrench into, and negatively impact the success of Administrative referendum in Darfur states. However, as they say, if a fact is not liked, that does not make it less true.

حول قرار مجلس الامن الدولي رقم (2265) لسنة 2016م

 

 

 

 

 

رقم 2265 اعتمد مجلس الأمن  القرار

بالإجماع والذي بموجبه تم تجديد ولاية فريق الخبراء المعني بلجنة العقوبات والمعين بموجب القرار 1591 لعام 2005. ويؤكد القرار الجديد على ضرورة وضع حد للعنف والتجاوزات المتواصلة في دارفور وأهمية التصدي للأسباب الجذرية للنزاع في إطار السعي إلى إقامة سلام دائم.

 

وتعقيبا على قرار المجلس، قال المندوب الدائم للسودان لدى الأمم المتحدة، عمر دهب فضل،إن القرارات المختلفة لمجلس الأمن تنحو إلى تحميل حكومة السودان مسؤولية الأعمال الإجرامية والإرهابية التي تقوم بها المجموعات المسلحة المارقة حيث لا يوجد في تلك القرارات ما يدين قيامها بهذه الأعمال، بل مطالبة متكررة لحكومة السودان بالقبض عليهم وتقديمهم للعدالة.

ودعا السفير فضل مجلس الأمن إلى إتخاذ أشد الإجراءات صرامة لضمان إلقاء هذه المجموعات للسلاح وانضمامها دون أي تلكؤ للعملية السلمية التي ثبتت ركائزها الآن في دارفور، وأضاف:  “إننا وإذ نعيد التأكيد هنا على التزامنا بالتعاون مع الفريق تطبيقا لقرار مجلس الأمن وتنفيذا له إلا أننا نشير بوضوح إلى المثالب والعيوب التي يشكلها تعدد الآليات والأجهزة التي وضعها مجلس الأمن في دارفور والإصرار عليها رغم التضارب الذي تحدثه. كما نرجو أن نذكركم بما نقلناه لفريق الخبراء في الاجتماع السابع المذكور من أهمية الالتزام بما يلي:

1. عدم تخطي حدود الولاية التي حددها قرار المجلس لولاية الفريق وهو القرار 1591 والالتزام الصارم بهذه الحدود.
2.
مراعاة عامل الزمن عند توجيه الاستفسارات للأجهزة والإدارات المختصة في حكومة السودان.
3.
أهمية الإخطار المسبق للسلطات الولائية عن أنشطة وتحركات الفريق لتفادي تعرض أفراد الفريق للخطر”.

وأكد السفير السوداني على أن وثيقة الدوحة للسلام في دارفور المبرمة عام 2011، هي الخط الفاصل بين الحرب الداخلية والسلام، مشيرا إلى أن تعمد تجاوز أو إغفال هذه الوثيقة يجري ضد مقتضى ميثاق الأمم المتحدة، كما أنه يعني الدعوة لاستمرار النزاع وإراقة الدماء

Why African Leaders Want US to Lift Sanctions on the Sudan

African heads of state and governments summit have recently adopted a declaration calling upon, not only the US to lift all sanctions and restrictions imposed on the Sudan, but likewise upon all states of the world not to recognise or apply these measures and to effectively counter them as appropriate.

Guided by the objectives of the African Union (AU) to achieve greater unity and solidarity between the African countries, and bearing in mind the negative socio-economic impacts and human costs of the American’s unilateral coercive measures imposed on the Sudan since 1997, particularly on the civilian population and cognizant of Sudan tireless effort in peace making locally and regionally.

The United States always, confirm its support for human rights activists and civil society organizations all over the world to build local capacity to promote the fundamental situation of human rights, to face the injustice, tyranny, torture, marginalization and discrimination. It calls for fighting for the universal human rights to be a reality for all people and work to protect the aspects of human dignity, regardless of cultural differences to provide freedom for continuing strive aiming at ensuring security and prosperity for all the peoples of the world.

The Efficacy of United States Sanctions on the Republic of Sudan


Abstract
This paper examines the relationship between the United States (US) and the Republic
of Sudan (Sudan), the complicated nature of which is an end result of the US’s ongoing
sanctions on Sudan. The paper also provides a careful analysis of Sudan’s relationship with
terrorism and the role that relationship has played in the US’s justification of economic
sanctions. Additionally, the paper will examine the implications of the US sanctions on
the livelihoods of everyday citizens in the country across a variety of different sectors,
while also providing a glimpse into how the Sudanese government and its top officials
have managed to thrive. The paper will then conclude by looking at alternative solutions,
on the basis that the sanctions are an inherently ineffective tool of diplomacy.

US puts security first in new relationship with Sudan

It might be a small step, but there are important consequences to a visit by a Sudanese deputy to Washington last week. Ibrahim Ghandour is both Sudan's assistant to President Omar al-Bashir and deputy chairman of the National Congress Party (NCP). He was the first Sudanese government figure to make an official visit to the US for many years.

Washington has cut almost all relations with Sudan since 1993, accusing the African country of sponsoring terrorism. Sanctions were imposed on Khartoum in 1997, and diplomatic relations between the two countries hit a low after allegations of war crimes in the West Darfur region emerged in 2003.

Washington's aim

It appears that Washington's aim with Ghandour's visit is to pressure Khartoum to accept a proposal by Africa's mediator in the Sudanese crisis, Thabo Mbeki, for greater participation of all of Sudan's factions in the running of the country.

رفع العقوبات الامريكية عن ايران وتداعياتها علي المنطقة

د. الرشيد محمد ابراهيم الرشيد

 

رغم الاختلاف الايديولوجى بين الولايات المتحدة الامريكية وايران ذات التوجهات الاسلامية التى تتصف بالنزعة الاستقلالية إلا أن أمريكا وايران تمكنتا من مخاطبة قضاياهما فى العلاقة الدولية وخاصة الملف النووي عبر الحوار والتفاوض فأحدث ذلك أنفراجاً فى العلاقات السياسية والدبلوماسية للبلدين وربما تكون لهذه الخطوة اثرها السياسي والاقتصادي والامني على  محيط الشرق الاوسط والمنطقة باسرها ، وهذا يقودنا بدوره عن الحديث عن إيران فى مرحلة مابعد رفع العقوبات .

 

 

1/ التداعيات السياسية: من ابرز التداعيات السياسية علي دول المنطقة هو التكريس لحالة الانقسام المذهبي والسياسي للقضايا والموضوعات ذات الصلة بذلك مثل الوضع في العراق والقضية الكردية في المنطقة والنزاع في سوريا والحرب في اليمن اذ يتوقع المراقبون ان تشهد الاوضاع السياسية نقلة نوعية في الادوات والوسائل ربما تساهم في توسيع دائرة النفوذ السياسي الايراني في منطقة الشرق الاوسط ويرفع من درجة فاعلية ايران حول الازمة السورية والعمليات التفاوضية في جنيف .

Condemn Sudan: It is easy

Dr. Osama Ahmed Idrous Ahmed

 

It is not easy for the Western mindset or the US government to simply believe that Sudan is striving for the better of its people and a peaceful settlement to volatile situations erupting in some parts of the country after the separation of Southern Sudan. Open any website or use any search engine to look for Sudan news and you will find a bizarre and a ceaseless campaign to illustrate an ugly and one-sided picture of the situation on the ground. The campaign is very intense and far-reaching beyond any capacity to counter efforts by Sudan government.

One example of such campaigns that are distorting the conflict and prolonging the wars in Darfur and other areas in Sudan can be cited in the work of the Save Darfur Coalition. Based in the United States, it is a coalition of more than 180 religious, political, and human rights organizations designed to campaign against the Sudan government and its response to the War in Darfur. In 2006, the Jerusalem Post reported that the Coalition was "begun exclusively as an initiative of the American Jewish community". The Coalition has also been criticized because none of the huge funds it raises go to help needy refugees on the ground in Darfur, but instead are used for lobbying the United States government to intervene militarily.

أهمية الحوار المجتمعي في تعزيز الوحدة الوطنية

د. عادل حسن محمدأحمد

الحوار في معناه الاصطلاحي يعني المراجعة بين اثنين أو أكثر من أجل الوصول الى توافق وتفاهم مشترك .  ويقصد بثقافة الحوار ، توفر الاستعدادات النفسية والفكرية لدى شرائح المجتمع المختلفة على نحو يتيح التواصل بين أفراد المجتمع بطريقة سلسة ، وتوجيه السلوك الخاص نحو قبول الآخر بغض النظر عن الفروقات والاختلافات بسبب الجنس أو العرق أو اللون أو الدين أو اللغة أو الانتماء . وأن تكون عملية قبول الآخر جزء من نمط العادات والتقاليد والموروثات والقيم والمعايير المرعية ، بمعنى آخر هي القدرة على التفاعل المعرفي والسلوكي مع الآخر وقبوله .
