GoSS seeking US guarantees to implement Abyei arbitration decision

Media Monitoring Report, April 25, 2009

GoSS Presidency Affairs Minister Luka Biong yesterday left The Hague for US to seek guarantees and mechanisms to ensure implementation of a possible Abyei arbitration decision.

“It is likely that the government will reject the arbitration tribunal ruling,” he said. “Rejecting the decision by either side will lead to a crisis and will deal a major blow to the CPA,” he added.

Member of the SPLM delegation to The Hague Edward Lino has also shared Luka Biong’s fears that the NCP might reject the arbitration decision, citing Sudan Government representative Al-Dirdiri Mohamed Ahmed’s statements which, he said, lacked any reference to the NCP commitment to the expected Abyei arbitration decision.
