Khartoum dismisses U.S. incentives

KHARTOUM, Sudan, Oct. 3 (UPI) -- Khartoum doesn't give much credit to Washington's incentives for peace along the border with South Sudan, a foreign affairs official said.

Washington, in a readout regarding its work at the U.N. Human Rights Council, called on all parties to border conflicts between Sudan and South Sudan to end violence.

"In South Kordofan and Blue Nile, where there are credible allegations of war crimes and crimes against humanity, the United States will continue to support an independent and credible investigation to hold those responsible to account," the readout read.

Al-Obeid Muraweh, a spokesman for the Sudanese Foreign Ministry, said Washington had said it would extend a "host" of incentives to Khartoum if fighting subsided.

He told the official Sudan News Agency that president after president has issued promises to help Sudan but those pledges rarely materialized. He said much of the rhetoric coming out of Washington is geared more toward the U.S. voter than the people of Sudan.

Washington in 2005 helped broker a comprehensive peace agreement that ended the Sudanese civil war, one of the bloodiest in human history.

Both Sudans were rapped for lingering violence along the border, which, along with disputes over the sharing of oil revenue, threatens to derail the peace accord.
