On May 2, the United Nations Security Council enacted a resolution addressing recent violence that has flared along the poorly defined international border separating Sudan and South Sudan, as well as the nearly year-long conflict between Sudanese government forces and the Sudan Revolutionary Front, or SRF. It was an important move, and a significant one given the political gridlock the Security Council often faces when considering issues related to the two Sudans.
In recent days the renewed hostilities between Sudan and South Sudan have caught the world’s attention. However, the back-and-forth between the two countries has often been difficult to follow. In light of this, the Enough Project has produced a new timeline to chronicle the often confusing events along the border and in the negotiating room.
"The US-based Carter Center, which has been charged with monitoring preparations for Sudanese elections next April, criticized the Khartoum authorities on Tuesday for impeding poll observers."
"Sudan's foreign minister said on Tuesday the country's oil-producing south 'overwhelmingly' wanted to declare independence in a looming referendum."
"Sandwiched in between China and India, two of the world's biggest new sources of energy demand, Burma is believed to have significant untapped reserves of natural gas. But its tangled history of government restrictions and, more recently, allegations of human-rights violations have limited outside investment to develop its resources."
"In a village perched a difficult climb half-way up a steep mountain slope in South Sudan, a woman is grinding up leaves plucked from a tree.
The drab green powder--added to some water--will have to make do for lunch."
"Southern Sudan leader Salva Kiir has made his strongest call for full independence when the region's status is decided at a referendum due in 2011."
