The Sudanese government and the Sudan Peoples’ Liberation Movement – North (SPLM-N) blame each other for the failure of informal talks on delivery of aid to South Kordofan and Blue Nile.

The informal consultations, held in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa, were the result of an initiative from Ugandan President, Yoweri Museveni.

The Government has accused the SPLM North of rejecting all options and renewing its insistence to deliver aid from abroad.

It said it has a new initiative for the delivery of humanitarian assistance to areas outside Government control in the two regions.

SPLM-N has accused the Government of sending a delegation of people with no mandate and repeating its previous positions without wishing to make any concessions as happened in the previous rounds of talks.

The Movement has adhered to the Ethiopian crossing of Asossa as a solution that leads to the cessation of hostilities.
