Sudan: July 3, 2002


Middle East Newsline (MENL) claimed that a Bush Administration source is saying that the Sudanese government (Khartoum) is now making headway against the SPLA. This report runs counter to a number of on-the-ground reports coming out of south Sudan. However, the MENL report says the reason Khartoum is seeing more success is increased cooperation from Ethiopia and Uganda. Recall Uganda and Sudan cut a deal which said they would not aid rebels. Sudan has let Uganda chase the LRA inside south Sudan. The tit for tat has been a drop in Ugandan support for the SPLA. The MENL report indicates the same situation is occurring vis a vis Ethiopia.
