WORLDMAGNUM: 14 March 2011 -- UNMIS: UN Mission in Sudan: Juba, Southern Sudan - Pagan Amum, Secretary General of the Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM), South Sudan's ruling party has accused Khartoum's National Congress Party (NCP) of backing militias with the intention of destabilizing the region as it approaches independence. Talking to reporter in Juba on Sunday (13 Mar), Pagan said that President Omer Al-Bashir's NCP "has been planning and working to destabilize South Sudan, from before the referendum until now." South Sudan has now suspended talks with Khartoum, accusing the NCP in the north of plotting to overthrow the southern government. Pagan added that the NCP have been arming Arab tribes along the border between the north and south so that they carry out genocide like they have done to the African people in Darfur. He urged the United Nations (UN) Security Council "to investigate the conduct of the NCP." Last week, the UN mission in the country (UNMIS) voiced its growing concerns over the civilian impact of the continuing operations by the SPLA against a militia loyal to General George Athor in the state of Jonglei. The clashes between the two groups have been reported since January, when voters in Southern Sudan overwhelmingly approved a referendum to secede from the rest of Sudan later this year.
