Ethiopian, African Union mediation needs to be unified – Sudan military council – backdoor to Egypt’s plan?

24 Jun

Posted by The Ethiopia Observatory (TEO)

KHARTOUM (Reuters) – Sudan’s ruling military council said on Sunday that Ethiopia and the African Union needed to unify their efforts to mediate between the council and an opposition coalition on the structure of the country’s transitional government.

The generals and the opposition coalition have been wrangling for weeks over what form Sudan’s transitional government should take after the military deposed long-time president Omar al-Bashir on April 11.

Both Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and the African Union (AU) have been trying to mediate between the sides.

The council’s spokesman, Lieutenant General Shams El Din Kabbashi, said on Sunday the council had rejected Ethiopia’s proposal, which the opposition coalition agreed to on Saturday, but had agreed in principle to the AU’s plan.

“The African Union’s initiative came first,” said Kabbashi, adding that the council had not studied the Ethiopian initiative, which he described as unilateral.

 



 

A draft of the Ethiopian proposal seen by Reuters suggested that a ruling sovereign council would be made up of seven civilians and seven members of the military, with one additional seat reserved for an impartial individual.

Details of the AU proposal were not immediately known.

“We asked the mediators to unite their efforts and submit a joint paper as soon as possible to return the parties to negotiations,” Kabbashi said at a news conference at the presidential palace.

NO “DICTATIONS”

Yasser al-Atta, a member of the military council, said: “The president (of the military council) clarified that he gave the mediators until tomorrow to present the joint vision.”

“We do not accept dictations from any country,” Atta added. “Saudi Arabia and the UAE have not and will not dictate political or economic conditions.”

The two oil-rich Gulf countries between them pledged $3 billion in financial and material support to Sudan in late April.

Talks between the ruling generals and the Forces for Freedom and Change coalition collapsed when security forces stormed a protest sit-in outside the Defence Ministry on June 3, killing dozens.

The military said a crackdown on criminals spilled over to the sit-in area, but some officers have been detained for presumed responsibility.

The makeup of the sovereign council was the main outstanding sticking point between the two sides before the talks collapsed. The military council canceled all agreements it had reached with the coalition after the sit-in’s disperal.

“The reality has changed, and calls for bringing other political forces, together with the Forces for Freedom and Change, into government,” Atta said on Sunday.

‘Superpowers’ Ethiopia & Kenya elbowed tiny Seychelles out of its UN Security Council seat aspiration

It should certainly be obvious to any student of global affairs that Ethiopia is badly in need of membership of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC). The TPLF-led regime, known for its brutality even amongst its bankrollers, realizes that its image is badly in need of heavy dose of mending via treatment only a seat at the Council avails.

The TPLF has massacred over 150 Ethiopian university and high school students in Oromia in about two months since the beginning of November 2015! Notwithstanding this, the AU, a club of dictators, which has its headquarters in Ethiopia and a witness to the crimes, has chosen to keep its silence in the face of the most atrocious human rights violations!

I. Security Council seat, a lotto or blackmail?

The dawn of 2016 – more precisely the mid-afternoon of the New Year day – was not as smooth and easy for me like its start under Helsinki’s sunny morning with temperature -4 celsius. This change of mood got me after I read an unpleasant news from Addis Abeba on the ruling party’s media. If indeed the scenario, as reported by the nation’s foreign minister is true and correct, the TPLF has managed to seize the opportunity to make Ethiopia sole candidate for seat in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) during the 2017-2018 term in a mysterious horse trading with two other East African candidate nations.
