Sudanese rebels: Sudanese army statements are mistaken
Sudan, Politics, 8/6/2002
The Sudanese news agency said that the Sudanese government has accused the Sudan People Liberation Army (SPLA) of preparing an attack against government's position in southern Sudan. The agency added that the government has warned that the government army will strongly retaliate any attack by the rebels.
The agency also quoted high ranking officials at the ministry of defense as saying that the SPLA continues to gather members and transfer heavy machine guns, equipment and supplies in the south.
The spokesman for the SPLA, Yasser Araman, replied to the accusations by saying that the government's statement is full contradictions and fabrications issued by the armed forces, considering that the threats are just an introduction and a cover for the military campaign the Sudanese "regime" intends to launch against the rebels. Araman added in a statement that advocates of the military solution -- under charges of improving their negotiation position -- are miscalculating for the repeated mistakes of the last 13 years. He concluded that the SPLA has been patient and did not answer the recent aggression. "But the people's army will this time retaliate any aggression firmly and strongly," Araman said.
