08:35, April 19, 2012

KHARTOUM, April 17 (Xinhua) -- Sudanese President Omar al- Bashir on Wednesday declared war on South Sudan, and vowed to bring down the government of the Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) in Juba, at a time of escalating military confrontations on the border between the two countries.

Addressing a rally of members of the ruling National Congress Party in Khartoum, the Sudanese president announced "from today our slogan is to liberate the citizens of South Sudan from the rule of the SPLM, and from today it will be eye for eye, tooth for tooth and strike for strike and the beginner (of the war) is more unjust".

"We've made a mistake historically to enable the SPLM to rule the south, but we will correct this mistake, and we have a moral obligation for our people in South Sudan, that is to save them from the SPLM," al-Bashir added.

Al-Bashir accused the government of South Sudan of failing to commit itself to the agreements and treaties the two countries had signed, saying "these people do not keep promises and not adhere to the documents, and they are traitors."
