MOSCOW, April 23 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow expects from the Sudanese sides further moves towards the implementation in full of UN Security Council demands and urges them to do all to avoid military confrontation, Russian Foreign Ministry sources said on Monday.
“According to arriving reports, South Sudan has withdrawn its military units from the Heglig area over which the authorities of the Republic of Sudan have restored control,” the sources said. “Thus one of the key points in the statement of the UN Security Council chairman of April 12, 2012, formulating demands of the international community to both Sudanese sides, has been implemented,” they said.
“However, the general situation in the border zone between the two states remains tense,” they stressed. “Moscow expects from both Sudanese sides further moves towards the implementation in full of UN Security Council demands, including mutual renunciation of interference in internal affairs of each other and support for the armed opposition,” the sources added.
“Everything must be done to avoid military confrontation, creating preconditions for the renewal of talks between Khartoum and Juba with an aim to find mutually acceptable solutions to the existing disputable issues,” they added.
Moscow expects that this “will open the door to the resumption of the process of building good neighborly relations and relations of constructive cooperation between Sudan and South Sudan, to practical implementation of bilateral agreements reached over the recent time in the best interests of the citizens of both states, peace and stability in the sub-region,” the Foreign Ministry sources emphasized.
