SPLM: Partners' talks over Abyei reach a deadlock

2 August 2010 (Al-Rai Al-Aam, UNMIS Media Monitoring Report)

The Abyei Chief Administrator Arop Deng told reporters in Khartoum yesterday that talks between the north and south over the issue of Abyei reached a deadlock a fact which might cause clashes.

Arop complained that the Misseriyya tribe had started to resettle 75 thousands people in north Abyei to change the demography of the area. Excluding Misseriyya, Arop estimated the residents of Abyei to be 100 thousands people. He said the aim behind this is to impact the referendum.
