Enough Project Media Advisory
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Thursday, August 2, 2012
Today, August 2, marks the deadline for the conclusion of negotiations between the governments of Sudan and South Sudan as set by U.N. Security Council Resolution 2046. In an effort to identify the compliance of the government of Sudan, the government of South Sudan, and the Sudan People's Liberation Movement-North's with the provisions of Resolution 2046 to date, the Enough Project published a summary chart of its compliance tracker. The summary chart provides an organized outline showing that the government of Sudan has failed to comply with nine provisions of Resolution 2046, whereas the government of South Sudan has failed to comply with two provisions, and the SPLM-N has complied or has expressed a willingness to comply with all relevant provisions.
"Relatively speaking, the government of Sudan's non-compliance with critical provisions of Resolution 2046 is clear. These critical provisions include requirements that the Sudanese government withdraw its forces from the Abyei area and agree to the Tripartite Proposal on the delivery of humanitarian aid to South Kordofan and Blue Nile. In the coming days and weeks, the U.N. Security Council and the African Union Peace and Security Council should take into account the discrepancies in non-compliance between the government of Sudan, on the one hand, and the government of South Sudan and the SPLM-N, on the other, particularly vis-à-vis the possible application of sanctions pursuant to operative paragraph 6 of Resolution 2046," said Enough Project Sudan Policy Analyst Jennifer Christian.
